Commonly used British phrase meaning to have sex. I've no idea why it should mean this.

How's-yer-father can be used as a thingumajig doohicky kind of a euphemism, and one of the things about AP was he used outdated slang which had come to take on more dubious meaning...

I found one source saying originally it was rhyming slang for lather which would work in this context, but I'm not sure about that

Okey dokey. 4pm Eastern time this Sunday it is then. Will send invites to the usual suspects and anyone else who hits me up for one () before then.
In the meantime there is the Cellar Slack channel for those “at the water cooler” moments you’re missing in your life ...

I will do my best to come! I would like to point out, however, that you don't have to create a new link for every Virtual Forks--zoom encourages you to keep your standing meetings in the same room every time so people can keep using the same link.

Saw this in the news today. Just an FYI:

Quote:
Zoom under scrutiny in US over privacy, porn hacks

Video conferencing app Zoom, which has seen its popularity skyrocket in the coronavirus pandemic, is in hot water after users complained to the FBI of being startled by porn during meetings. …

New York Attorney General Letitia James sent a letter to the in-vogue California enterprise "with a number of questions to ensure the company is taking appropriate steps to ensure users' privacy and security," a spokesman said. …

… The investigation comes after the FBI's Boston office warned on Monday that it had "received multiple reports of conferences being disrupted by pornographic and/or hate images and threatening language." …

… The FBI recommended that Zoom users make all meetings private and avoid screen sharing to combat would-be hackers. …
Video with disturbing privacy particulars in the linked story.

I considered buying a few shares of their stock, ss it seems they will grow in coming months, but then I decided to buy Marijuana. Stocks. I bought stock in a company that sells weed.

Definititely a boom coming in that business. Might take a year, but once it's legal in most states, and people don't have to go through dealers, I see good times ahead.
