    Notice the first word.... clean.

    We are an international community of writers...i think it would be fun and interesting if we created a list of some of our favorite "clean" slang terms.

    List the term or phrase and the country of use and of course what it means.....Maybe even use it in context


    term: thing-a-ma-jig

    Country: USA

    definition: any object that you are referring to the name of   which you cannot remember

    "The thingamajig fell on the floor"

      I'm in the USA, and that one's foreign to me.  smile

      For some reason, I'm not coming up with any general ones (I have my own), but I've noticed lately that there seems to be a new multitude of ways to use "blah blah", and it does seem to be being thrown around regularly and by everyone I know.  lol

      It used to be used in one way, and that was if someone were repeating what someone else said in conversation he might say something like, "..and then he went to the store, blah blah blah".  These days it seems to have become a verb, a noun, an exclamatory, an adjective - whatever anyone wants it to be.  smile   I'm actually wondering if, maybe, within about five years, every word in the English language will be replaced with "blah blah", and the whole English-speaking world will sound like Charlie Brown's mother.   big_smile   (Oh, never mind.  I guess she squawked , "Wah wah wah".  smile
