Slangin'

It will always live on in our hearts. And other vital organs contained within our eventually-dead bodies.

i say "Sweet Creamy Christ!" a lot.<P>my best lines come from when i'm beating up people in videogames. <P>"Can you sign for this package... because I'm about to deliver a box of PAIN!"<P>"I don't know what they call that in YOUR country but..." or "Now, I'm not a doctor but..."<P>My favorite is "Get off my plane!" (<i>Air Force One</i>), followed by "Get out of my house!" (Harrison Ford using a rocket launcher to shoot a terrorist out the front door in <i>Air Force One Two: Tha White Hizzouse</i>) and "Get out of my car!" (Harrison Ford kicking a terrorist out of the sunroof of his limo in <i>Air Force One Three: Rollin' With Tha Homie</i>)

Thick and Heavy replacing cool and awesome. Can also be used in conjunction with each other.<P>Example:<P>"dude, that was heavy."<P>"no, way, man, it was thick."<P>"It was so thick, it's heavy."<P>"That's heavy thick, man"<P>And so on.<P><P>------------------

The purpose of this topic is twofold:<P>1) Post your own unique colloquialisms, metaphors, similes, etc.<P>2) A place for me to remember all of these said slang expressions (I typically come up with 5 or 6 a week).
__________________________<P>Instead of "flowing like wine" say "flowing like malt liquor at the Freaknik."<P>Instead of "buddy" say "brussel sprout." <i>ex. Get your mitts offa my dandelion wreath, <b>brussel sprout</b>!</i> This can be substituted with "Tiger Lily" as used by Ben Stiller in "Mystery Men."<P>------------------

In the CBC-TV airing of "Police Academy," during the infamous combat-training scene, Tackleberry yells (in a very bad dub)
DROP THAT STEREO, EGGROLL, BEFORE I BLOW YOUR GOSH-DARN KNEECAPS OFF.<P>I used to like that until I moved to the city, where there were asian people who objected strongly to being called "Eggroll." The weird thing is Tackleberry said it to Steve Guttenberg in the no-swear TV version of "Police Academy."<P>I also say "Cool beans" and "Neato mosquito" a lot.<P>------------------

"that's a 3-duder"<P>as in "dude. dude! dude!!!" (psssh. you know you all say it) the only 5-duder known to my circle of friends was when we were watching digital cable drunk and a woman was smoking a cigarette in her meat-sleeve.<P>oh yeah. that's another one for you.<P>also, we like to say "Yoo can doo eet!" i don't remember what movie that's from.<P>"colder than a witch's tit."<P>"more bandwidth than a fedex truck full of CD-roms" (that one is credited to William Gibson, with a modernizing edit. the original was "diskettes")<P>for some reason, i can only think of stupid ones. must be all the english i'm not speaking.

I'm one of those unoriginal bastards who just says the F-word over and over.<P>Swearing oaths, such as "BY YMIR'S FROSTY BEARD!" is always fun. I like "By crackey!", and "By grabs!", although I have no earthly idea what a "grabs" is.<P>I had a neighbor who used to exclaim that it was "colder than a welldigger's asshole" outside. Exactly how he got to be such an expert on the temperature of welldigger assholes, I do not know.

"Meat sleeve?"<P>LOL. I'll have to start using that one. "Axe Wound" is a good one, as well as "gash".<P> My dad used to call me "Rasputin" because I had long hair and a beard. He also called me "Cro-Magnon man". I got verbally abused a lot as a teenager. That's OK, though, because now I just call him "OLD MAN!!!" instead of "Dad". That really pisses him off.

Slang: "Step off before I 'dot your eye'"<P>Breakdown: "Step off" being very, very old 80's hip hop slang and "dot your eye" meaning "I will hit you and give you a black eye.<P>Slang: "Damn, gurl! You're fat up!"<P>Breakdown: "Gurl" that's the way we pronounce the word "girl" in the South. "Fat up" meaning that the female is very well proportioned.<P>Gerald

i say "havin' a fag" as slang for havin' a smoke, which is one step closer to de-gaying the english language.<P>i'd use the word "gay" for "happy" more, if it weren't so gay.

"Crab" - speak up (ripped off from a Weezer tune)<P>i.e., "You gotta crab if you want this last slice of pizza, dude."<P>My friends and I started using that term when we were stoned and looking for new words.<P>If you want more weird slang, read <a href="http://www.suck.com/daily/2000/01/26/">this piece</a> and the <a href="http://www.suck.com/daily/2000/06/28/">follow-up</a>.

When something's cool, you say "That's slicker than boiled okra!"<P>Except you have to say it with a southern accent for the full effect, as in "Hell, 'at's slicker'n boiled okrey!"
