3TB Shorts 6: The Arse Fruit, the Love for Fountain Pens and Our Guide to Answering Any Question 3 Techies Banter #3TB

    • Tech News

If you thought PPP stood only for Public-Private Partnerships, you are not much of a writer. At 3TB, we think PPP should only mean Petrache Poenaru Pen - dedicated to the inventor of the fountain pen. With everyone agitating for a name change, it is time for us fountain pen activists to get a pen named after its creator. That seems to be a just cause.

And now we come to the trickiest word in the English language - arse. A quick search yielded 34 ways to use it as an idiom or in a sentence. Then there is the usage itself, which is confusing - bad-arse is good; smart-arse is bad. Sometimes it is just added to be cool - lazy arse is lazy, and a long-arse flight is just a long flight. Quite puzzling. Our story is not no ordinary fruit - it is the Arse Fruit.

For that and more intriguing insights, listen to our shorts.
