A sound production technique intended to reduce or eliminate the excessive prominence of sibilant consonants.


DS stands for “dogshit alley” amongst my mountain biking friends and refers to a specific section of urban woodland popular with dog walkers

But Sexybum starts with a Z?

I knew someone with those initials and he shat himself in the office and it rolled down his leg and they had to get an industrial cleaner in.


For his leg?

Yeah ‘they’ - his legs.


That specific thing has not happened to me (yet) but it does sound fairly on brand.

DS is my boss.


In finding this image I also found this YouTube channel, which is low-key hilarious
