punt & queer

Quotations:

Complete Works of Virginia Woolf:

He was the hero of the punt accident, you remember? A queer card. Married a young woman out of a tobacconist's, and lived in the Fens - never heard what became of him

Definitions:

punt:
a long shallow boat with a flat bottom and square ends which is moved by pushing the end of a long pole against the bottom of a river.

queer:
1. strange or unusual;
2. an offensive way of describing a homosexual, especially a man, which is, however, also used by some homosexuals about themselves.
