    My husband calls this a 'hand truck.' I call it a 'dolly.'


    My husband calls this a 'tag.' I call it a 'plate.'


    That's all I can think of right now.
    “There are two novels that can change a bookish fourteen-year old’s life: The Lord of the Rings and Atlas Shrugged. One is a childish fantasy that often engenders a lifelong obsession with its unbelievable heroes, leading to an emotionally stunted, socially crippled adulthood, unable to deal with the real world. The other, of course, involves orcs.”
    ~ John Rogers

    I always liked "bo-bo". It describes an inferior version of something good. Like, "Buy the Madagascar vanilla extract, not the bo-bo imitation vanilla." I think it originally described cheap knockoffs of stylish sneakers but then expanded to describe any cheap imitation.

    I'm not sure if this is slang so much as a language tic, but in southern California everyone adds "the" to the names of freeways. For example, they'll say "Take the 101 to the 405 and then exit at Washington" instead of just "Take 101 to 405 and then exit at Washington". My friend Greg found this so amusing that he started adding "the" to all numbers. "Hey, this shirt is on sale for the $19.95!" But they also omit "the" before the word prom. Here they say "She's going to prom with Jimmy" instead of "She's going to the prom with Jimmy." It was jarring to me because in the area I grew up, we didn't use "the" for roads but we did for proms.

    I will admit to saying "Yous guys" sometimes when I'm not paying attention. Used like "Hey, Hey! yous guys come over her right now." Other than that, I tend to mash words together sometimes when I'm worked up. (Usually profanities, so I'll spare you)

    And I've never heard "wrecker" before I joined the military.

    They'd say: "Go get the wrecker and jump start this truck"
    Me: "What the hell is a wrecker?"
    Them: "It's that, right there" *they point*
    Me: "Ohhhh you mean a tow truck?"
    Them: "No, it's called a wrecker"
    Me: (Now I'm just messing with them for correcting me) "No that's a tow truck, everyone knows that, ya' dummy."

    some favourite irish slang:

    "Bogger" = Hillbilly
    "craic/crack" = meaning fun/good/great etc.
    "gobshite" = retard (not literally but used in the same way as an insult)
    "Knobjockey" = faggot
    "Ringpiece" = The part of the ass where stuff goes, out and on some people also in.
    "Windy" = feminine/gay/weak guy

    Heh.. this is double confusing for me. I know what you mean, but to me a faggot is a food item. It's like an sage and oniony meatball dish.. delicious too. I went out for some excellent venison faggots in Wales recently.

    I've heard that this is a californianism before.. yet to me it is the usage of the UK. It would sound quite odd to me not to put the "the" in front.

    I noticed this when I went to California for the first time! I thought it was interesting.



    I'm a big fan of "y'all." I think it's a highly useful word that serves a very specific purpose. And although I say "firefly," the southern coinage "lightning bug" is quite endearing.
