    What words/phrases are slangs where you live and how do you use them?

    Example: London


    A) Legless means Drunk

       (He is Legless)


    B) Thick means stupid

       (She is so thick)


    Any Slangs?

      heh, never heard that one...I have, however, heard "a goose just walked over your grave", which I say all the time when I get chills, you know, goosebumps suddenly? my mom used to say it and then we kids started saying it too. then I would think about where I would be buried someday on some green spot of land and at that moment some goose was walking right on that very spot!

    Here's a classic piece of slang originating right here in the Bay Area:

    hella (adj or adv) - very or very much
    example: Maddie!  Ban him!  He's hella spamming the forums.

        Another useful piece of slang for forum flagging:

    I'm in Michigan now, but I lived most of my life in Kentucky so I'm a Southerner and this definitely a Southern thing....

    "Bless Your Heart" which can mean lots of things. Here's a few:

    Empathy - Her boyfriend just dumped her, bless her heart!

    Sympathy - I'm so sorry you just burned your fried chicken.  Bless your heart.

    To water down something you've said that is really mean - She has gotten so fat since high school, bless her heart!

    There are loads of other uses for this handy little phrase.  And I've used 'em all.  Bless my heart!

      Don't forget also..."I am going to sit on my throne." Same as toilet!
      "Hugging the throne"....too many drinks and the after effect!
      "Take a hike"...get out of here/leave

      "Get outta here!"....unbelief at times
      Example:
      (Mike)I just found a wad of cash and it is now mine.
      (Mary) get outta here...really?

    A classic in Boston - Wicked pissa. Something is really good. Better if it is related to Boston. Such as "Did you see the Celtics game, wicked pissa."

      I'm sorry...but, being down here in Texas...I never heard that one before...it is hil-ar-ious! I think if I heard that one before the heads-up from you (especially in Boston accented-ness)...I would have fell out on the floor...dying of laughter. Thank you ...so much...for sharing that one...that is classic!

      "Wicked pissa..." lol lol lol lol lol lol

        Nelle Hoxieposted 10 years agoin reply to this

        Now if I hear that saying has spread to Texas - with Boston accent - I'll know who's spreading it.

        The tamer version is wicked good. Such as the t-shirt I saw today  - wicked good pats fan.

        And the term wicked is everywhere in the boston area. no one really knows how it got started either.
