SLANG - ah it makes me laugh!


#1

An American mate of mine was saying to a student the other day “dope, that’s dope man”!!! I thought f@#$k, what’s going on here? Thus my education that dope was little more than something I’d call "sweet’ or “puss”. I’ve whacked down three of my more common slang terms, and invite foreigners from all nationalities to tell us a few of theirs.

Cutten me lunch - where somebody tries to sleep with your girl on the sly. “Macca the bloody wanker was trying to cut me lunch on the weekend”

Cheap talking - somebodies words have little chance of resulting in actions. ie “oh well now that’s bloody cheap talk”

Slappin skin - getting a root. “did you slap some skin on the weekend”

First, there’s that all-time classic: BITCHIN!
Then there’s gnarly and radical.
What can I say? I’m Old-Skool, G!

Hanging out, drinking beer: Chillin’

My friends/mates: Homies/homeboys

Police: 5-0, The MAN, Johnny Law

Mowing someone else’s lawn - hence the lawnmower man. (Moving in on s’one else’s bird)


#10

ex-chinese girlfriend used to call sex

“murdering a pig” or Sha-Zhu

but Roger’s profanisaurus is by the best guide to current UK and American euphemisms.

My personal fave, for taking a dump is

“A bombing raid on Armatige Shanks Harbour”

Or "I'm giving birth and the baby's crowning". Or "prairie dogging", as in "Man, pull over already. I've gotta go so bad I'm prairie doggin'!" (One must be familiar with the fast, twitchy movements these sleek brown animals make when they poke their heads out of their holes...)

When I was in high school, guys said “the turtle’s pokin’ it’s head out.” Same general idea, more of a gradual process.

Thinking of my student days and Viz comics in particular, gotta wonder how well an “adult” comic like Viz would go down in Taiwan. Do such things exist here?
