That just means that on top of being a dick and a douche he isn't also a wanker.

But there's no independent kilt cycling association that I am aware off

Millar played up his self-pity. A tosser.

However, as a francophone who has lived in Chamonix for 2 years, I assure you that the C in Mont Blanc, while a bit of a regional thing, is pronounced.

Worst words incorrectly and completely overused today: amazing, epic, and literally. If you listen for them, you will hear them abused multiple times every day. Add organic if you like.

Millar is the epitome of pretentious IMO. I find him very unlikeable.

Organic refers to $hiit. Literally. The phrase originated with food grown with organic fertilizer (horse manure, cow dung, chicken poop, or whatever) as opposed to inorganic fertilizer (chemically fixed nitrogen/phosphate compounds). The phrase morphed from food descriptions to general descriptions of natural products.
From a chemistry point of view, organic refers to carbon-based compounds whereas inorganic refers generally to mineral-based compounds. As a chemist, it hurts my ears to hear granite referred to as "organic", but I recognize that language is dynamic and idioms change in time.

who are you calling an idiom?

I forgot "tosser." Really like that one. Organic really has so many meanings. I can think of the following

Chemistry -- carbon-containing compounds generally as relates to the chemistry of living things
Food/Agri-business --- grown without man-made chemical compounds
Medical -- of or relating to a particular organ as in Organic Brain Disease
Millar and other pretentious tossers (yeah baby) -- uh not sure but I think he meant "gradual" or a "slow evolving process."

Its quite amazing that we can use this same word in so many different ways. But thats language, I guess -- its really kind of organic.....

smokey is correct, idiots change in time (but he has a typo).

I hear a lot of these words over and incorrectly used.

I've heard it Blanc (with a soft, tapered off 'c') from Frenchies but a few translation sources don't say the 'c'.

Millar is a massengill!

an example of dual-language wordplay gone terribly, horribly wrong:

A beverage company’s combination of French and English words under its bottle caps as part of a fun game for customers ended disastrously this week when an Edmonton woman unscrewed her Vitaminwater and saw the message “YOU RETARD” under the cap.
