This headline is funny.
Phelps Tops Himself at Trials
I had to look it up to find out why.
top Verb. To kill. E.g."He took a full bottle of pain-killers and topped himself."
Adj. Excellent, 'sorted'. [Orig. Manchester use]

I always thought that this was the strangest:
take the piss Vrb phrs. 1. To ridicule, to tease, to make fun off. Cf. 'extract the urine'.
2. To take advantage of, to exploit. E.g."Just because they like looking after their grand children, doesn't mean you can dump the kids on them every weekend whilst you go out clubbing. That's just taking the piss."

Topping can also mean sex, I believe. It's just funny in so many ways.

That's what I thought at first, which is funny, but I think it does mean to kill.
Everything should also mean sex though.

Janel Moloney's leg is totally hot. In fact, all of her is hot.

Yes. That is Donna's leg.

And it's a pretty good summation of why I want to sex her up.

Donna is awesome.
Hey, maybe she'll come on to you by dropping her panties in front of you while explaining that Sam meant Kazakhstan, not Kyrghistan.

I can only hope.

Or maybe she'll tell me how gorgeous and powerful I am.
