a vigorous bitch.

Post by Archived Topic » Wed Nov 24, 2004 5:57 am

I was watching a comedy movie a few days ago, and I hear the above said. OK...the situation was a Maffia-man who had come to remind some bloke that his payment was due tomorrow. After whacking the TV set with a baseball bat to make his point, on the way out he paused at the door and said something menacing in Italian. When the quaking intern frowned and said "What?" the hood replied with a shrug..."It's a vigorous bitch."

Sounds like that old chestnut, especially relevant to this site: 'A figure of speech.' - a vigorous bitch.
Do I get the T-shirt in time for Xmas?

It's a "vigorous bitch" to explain something in menacing Italian?

Nobody's explained it yet...getting close to the last "mail-by" date...and the ketchup on the tee shirt is starting to go a bit flaky now...

I think Leighton has already won - he didn't say "a vigorous bitch", he said (with Mafioso accent) "itsa figger a' spitch", i.e. "it's a figure of speech."

Enter "vigorous bitch" under "exact phrase" and you will get 4 hits; not vy much help I know but God bless you it's the best I can do bcause I have to go pull weeds

Ken knows how to find "related phrases" and when he gets back from vacation--thank his ornery soul--he will be able to elaborate in spades

How do you like that phrase

But I warn you, gird your loins....

.. it could also have little or no meaning except in the mind of the screenwriter who wanted to use his creative mind to have his tough guy say something that sounded tough .. one of those phrases that just pop-up and only owe their existence to the fact that Hollywood needs lines for movies .. on the other hand to "bitch" is to complain .. so a "vigoruous bitch" might be an enegetic way of complaining hence belting the tv with the baseball bat ..

Oooo. I didn't spot the double entendre here...looks like a "fairy Asian" that escaped me.
Do you and Leighton mind sharing? That way you can each have the tee shirt for the Summer...
