If there's one thing the English thoroughly enjoy,
it's mucking around with their language. Horrified by what the Australians
and Americans have done to the language of Shakespeare and Dickens,

the English continue to assert their authority over their native tongue by
inventing words that no self-respecting Australian or American would ever
use !!

A

Adam's ale - Water.

Anorak - A geek or nerd. A term that has been used since the 80s,
an 'anorak' is always male, unfashionable and possibly a trainspotter,
though now often attributed to the type of people who spend their days surfing the net.

B

Backhander - A payment given, normally in a secretive fashion like a bribe.

Banged up - To be put in prison, as in 'Did you hear John got banged up for that blag?'

Beer - As well as meaning the specific drink, 'beer' can also sometimes be used to refer to anything alcoholic, as in 'Where's me beer gone?'

Big girl's blouse - A term that has more associations with the north of England, but is also used 'down south'. Normally used as a term to playfully ridicule a young man who is a bit soft and shy. The sort of thing your uncle might say to you, as in 'Come on, put your back into it you big girl's blouse!'

Bladdered - Very drunk, as in 'He was completely bladdered.' In West
Yorkshire this has mutated to 'blathered'.

Bloater - Fat person.

Bloke - Man.

Bog - Toilet.

Bog standard - Completely standard. It's a comparatively recent phrase which came from the type of kit car you could buy, the sort of thing that keen DIYers get up to - building their own sports car. In the factory there
were several versions of the same car with optional extras, but the basic
car crate with no extras was the 'Box, Standard'. This has been slightly corrupted to become 'bog standard'.

Bostin' - (Birmingham) More than good.

Box - Television, as in 'Let's see what's on the box tonight.'

Brass monkey, Cold enough to freeze the balls on a ... - This saying has nothing to do with the genitalia of metal simians, it's actually a naval expression. A 'monkey' was the plate on which cannon balls stood on warships, and these monkeys were made of brass because brass contracts and expands at a different rate to the iron of the cannon balls, thus stopping the balls freezing together. If it was really cold, though, the balls still froze together, hence 'cold enough to freeze the balls on a brass monkey'.

Brolly - Umbrella

Bun in the oven, To have a ... - Pregnant.

C

Caned - Very drunk, or suffering from the effects of something a little stronger...

Chelsea smile - The scar you get when you have been cut ear to ear is
known as a Chelsea smile. Comes from the criminal underworld of the
60s, the Kray era.

Chips - Americans call the fries, the English call them chips, as in fish and
chips.

Chronic - Terrible, extreme, as in 'I've got chronic headache.'

Chunder - To throw up.

Cobblers - Cockney rhyming slang, short for 'cobblers awls', 'balls'. Used
as a general swear word much in the way 'balls' is, as in 'That's a right load of old cobblers' or as a one word disagreement 'Cobblers!'

Codswallop - Rubbish, as in 'He's talking codswallop.'

Cop off - To pull/get off with/score with someone, normally at a party or
night club.

Cushty - Good, as in 'He's got a cushty set-up going there.'

Cuzzer - Slang term for a curry.

D

Daft a'pe'th - Yorkshire term for an idiot ('plonker' would be the more common term in the south).

Doing time, doing porridge, doing stir - Serving your time in prison.

Drang - (North Devon) very narrow lane.

E

Emmett - (Cornwall) A term for a tourist that also means 'ant', applied to
tourists due to their propensity to swarm over things in a manner similar to a disturbed ant's nest. It is interesting to note that the Anangu Aboriginals of central Australia refer to tourists who climb Uluru (Ayer's Rock) as 'minga', also meaning 'ants'.

'Er indoors - The wife. Meaning the one at home. Made popular by the
character Arthur Daley from the TV series Minder.

F

*** - Cigarette.

Family way, To be in the ... - Pregnant.

Flicks - Cinema, as in 'Have you been to the flicks recently?'

G

Geezer - Man.

Grenade - An ugly girl. This comes from the altruistic motives of two lads,
who when chatting up two girls will honour a prior agreement in which one of them will 'take the grenade', i.e. cop off with the minging one. From this behaviour, 'grenade' has become a derogatory term for any member of the opposite sex.

Grockel - (North Devon) Tourist.

H

Hen's teeth - A rare thing, seldom found.

Hobson's Choice - To have Hobson's Choice is to have no choice at all.
The phrase comes from a coachhouse-keeper in Cambridge (after whom 'Hobson's Ditch' which runs alongside Trumpington Street is also named), whose policy was that anyone looking to take one of his horses out had to have the one in the first stall by the door, rather than being able to pick the best one. He did this to ensure that all his horses were evenly used. Someone might want to take out a horse that had recently been out, which would over-tire the horse, and 'Hobson's Choice' prevented this from happening.

Homely - If someone is homely they are skilled in the arts of the home.

How's yer father - Sex, as in 'Fancy a bit of how's yer father?'

K

Knackered - Tired.

L

Lairy - Loud, brash, as in 'He's really lairy.'

Larging it - A modern term that comes from club culture. To 'have it large'
means to go all-out to have a good time. Similar to the phrase 'up for it'.

Local - A common UK term for the local public house, as in 'I'll see you down the local at eight.'

Lollop - To laze around.

Loo - Toilet.

Lugs - Ears.

M

Malarkey - Stuff, nonsense. May have come from the Irish
word 'mullachan' meaning 'strongly built boy' or 'ruffian'.

Manor - Territory, area, turf. Usually associated with the criminal underground, for example 'If I see you round my manor again you're dead!'

Minging - Drunk, painful, disgusting, as in 'I was totally minging last night'
or 'My head is really minging'.

Munchies - A serious bout of hunger after or during a drinking spree, as in 'I've got the munchies, man.' Also associated with illicit substances.

Muppet - A foolish or stupid person, as in 'Don't be a muppet, I can't
believe you're gonna do that.'

N

Nonce - Someone who rats on a criminal.

Nookie - A slightly old-hat name for sex, common in Carry On films.

Nutcase, nutter - Madman.

O

One for the road - A last drink before going home. The origin of this
phrase is a bit creepy. When prisoners were condemned to be hanged at Tyburn in London they were taken there on a waggon. Their last request was to be given the choice of a drink at any ale house along the way. This was their 'one for the road'. One of the guards accompanying the prisoner was not allowed to go into the ale house and had to stay to mind the cart.
He was described as being 'on the waggon' and could not have a drink,
giving us another modern saying.

P

Packed in - Broken down, normally applied

Palaver - A bother or a fuss. According to the OED, palaver comes from the Portuguese palavra meaning word. Originally palaver was a prolonged conversation or discussion, but its meaning has been corrupted over the years.

Pants - A 90s term that is currently very popular. It can be used as an exclamation of frustration (much in the way that 'arse' is) or to describe something that is bad or rubbish, as in 'Did you watch the Arsenal match, wasn't it pants?' Sometimes prefixed by 'a load of old' or 'complete'.

Pear-shaped - When something has 'gone pear-shaped' it has gone wrong. Probably derived from the sagging shape of a pear.

Pee - To urinate.

Pig in a poke - To buy a pig in a poke is to buy something that you haven't checked over and know very little about. In olden days when people went to market a common trick was to put a cat or kitten into a bag (a poke) and tell unwary or gullible members of the public that it was a fine piglet. Cats were pretty much worthless while piglets were prized. The idea was to sell it without letting the person look into the bag. From the same situation we get a second saying, 'to let the cat out of the bag', i.e. to reveal the (unpleasant) surprise.

Plastered - Very drunk.

Plonker - A stupid person.

Point Percy at the porcelain - To urinate (for men).

Powder your nose - Originally a euphenism for going to the toilet, but
modern usage is as a euphemism for taking cocaine, as in 'Dave's just nipped off to powder his nose.'

Prat - Idiot.

Puke - To throw up.

R

Rag - Newspaper or magazine.

Raining cats and dogs - Heavy rain. This has to do with the fifteenth century or so when a thatched roof was the favourite place for animals to live, but when it rained, the roof would get soggy, and the cats and dogs would fall into the house (or, I suppose, just slide off from time to time).

Ring-piece - Relatively common term for the anus, as in 'That curry I had
last night has scorched my ring-piece.'

Rubber - A pencil eraser.

Rubber johnny - Condom.

S

Shag - To have sex, but also used to mean tiredness as in 'I'm totally
shagged.'

Shake hands with the unemployed - To go to the toilet (for men).

Shanks's pony, Going on ... - To walk. The original Shanks's pony was a horse-drawn lawnmower with nowhere for the driver to sit, so he had to walk along behind.

Shattered - Tired.

Shrapnel - The term used to describe the inordinately large amount of
small change discovered in your pocket after a piss up.

Siphon the python - To go to the toilet (for men).

Slash - To go to the toilet, as in 'I'm going for a slash.'

Smallest room in the house - Euphemism for toilet.

Squire - A general term of address towards a man, similar to 'guvnor'.

Stag night - Also referred to as a 'stag do', this is the traditional last party thrown by a bachelor before he gets married (known as a 'bachelor party'
in the US and 'buck's night' in Australia).

T

Take a leak - To urinate (generally for men).

Taters (pronounced Tay-ters) - Cold, as in 'It's right taters today.'

Technicolour yawn, Produce a ... - To throw up, normally after consuming too much alcohol.

Thick as two short planks - Stupid.

Tooled-up - To arm oneself, usually with improvised weapons like bottles
or sticks, as in 'There was a right ruck dahn the pub last night and then
these headcases got tooled-up!'

Trashed - Common term for getting very drunk, as in 'We got completely
trashed last night.'

Trolleyed - Very drunk.

U

Up for it - To be willing to have a good time. Also (for a woman) to be sexually available.

V

Visit the little girl's (or boy's) room - To go to the toilet.

W

Wazzock - Foolish person.

Wedge - Money, from the appearance of a number of folded notes. Examples of its use are 'I got paid a fair old wedge for doin' that job' or 'Are you wedged-up and ready to go ?'

Wee - Children 'go for a wee' when they need to go to the toilet. What they produce is known as 'wee-wee'.

Window licker - A name for the sort of nutter who sits next to you on the
bus and does something weird.

Wrecked - Drunk or tired.

Mild English Swear Words!!

Ain't 'Haven't' or 'am not'. Really. It's exactly

the same word. Just slightly mutated and processed through several dialects. Examples : 'I ain't got a clue.' 'I ain't a wanker.' Small point.
When used as 'am not', you can also add an extra 'no' into the sentence instead of 'a'. I ain't no wanker.'

All mouth and no trousers bark worse than
bite, but slightly more derogatory.

Argy-bargy mild argument or fight. Normal use
is a 'a bit of an argy-bargy'

Arse bum. Correct pronunciation and spelling
of the american 'ass'. Much more satisfying to say, too. Can also be used as a very mild swearword, as can 'bum'.

Arsing about messing around.

Ass donkey. Calling someone an ass means
they've the common sense of a donkey. Or possibly less, since most
donkeys are cunning little sods.

Balderdash Nonsense. Never used outside
costume drama, and even then only by people with unfeasibly large
moustaches. Preferably in the army or with a fair bit of money.

Batty boy gay. It's Jamaican, and it's not really
complimentary.

Bawdy a phrase applied to sex comedies and
anything smutty with lots of humour. V. long tradition in Britain, dating
back to at least Chaucer in written prose.

Belt not only does this keep your trousers up,
it can also mean to hit someone, rather hard.

Belt up verb, used to tell someone to shut up.

Bint female. not complimentary.

Bloody This is not actually the universal swear
word/emphasiser in the UK. We have others. Comes from the old
swearing 'By God's blood!'. See Chaucer for variations - I know there's another swear word that comes from this kind of thing, but I can't remember what it is.

Bloomers type of clothing. Refers to either the
unfeasibly long knickers women used to wear but also the very baggy
trousers worn in the twenties, also by women.

Bollocks your balls. General swear word. To
talk bollocks is to talk shit.

Bonnet hood of the car. And yes, that weird
hat-thing from the 19th century.

Boot not only footwear, but the trunk of your car.

Braces holds your trousers up. You call 'em
suspenders. (also refers to what orthodontists put on your teeth to keep
them straight. Metal ones are commonly referred to as traintracks).
Suspenders here refers to the things you use to keep socks and stockings
up.

Brassed off annoyed. Except this was only
used in the north, and only very rarely then. Rather old-fashioned.
Bugger sodomisation. Penis, meet arsehole. Mild swear word.

Bugger This For a Lark (also see 'bugger this
for a game of soldiers', 'sod this for a lark' and 'sod this for a game of
soldiers') - Fuck this, I don't want to play anymore or take part in this.

Builder's Bum refers to the absolutely
*delightful* sight of jeans riding down so low at the back you see the
owner's crack. No prizes for guessing where it comes from.

Chat up, to flirting, or talking in a way to get
something out of someone, often by flirting slightly. Mostly used when
someone has a definite aim in mind rather than doing it idly.

Copper, Pig, Bobby, Old Bill, The Bill, Fuzz Our
wonderful policing constabulary.

Cop shortened version of copper, also verb -
to take notice of. 'Cop a look'. also can mean 'any good?' As in 'Any cop?
' Much cop?'

Cadge, to cadge borrow, beg. As in 'Ere, mate,
c'n I cadge a *** off yeh?' - 'Can I borrow a cigarette?'

Camp as in 'camp as a row of tents'. Highly
effeminate behaviour, mostly associated with gay men and gay icons.
See Graham Norton, Julian Clary, Kenneth Williams, Are You Being
Served?.

Chips potatoes in chipped form. Oh, all right.
Fries. But chunkier and probably with more potato.

Chit small, insignificant - normally used to
mean 'piece of paper' or 'bill/receipt'. What someone hands you to tell
you how much money they're owed after a job, or the document that tells you their orders. In Victorian/Edwardian times, it was also used to refer to a girl. As in 'a chit of a girl'. Slightly babyish and meaning you weren't
big enough to handle something. Has not been used since WW1 outside of
anything but Dickens.

CID Criminal Investigation Department, the
detectives section of the police. Most popular translation is 'Coppers In Disguise'.

Crisps You call 'em chips. They are 'crisped'.
Therefore crisps. Duh.

Cunt this just isn't as offensive as it is in the
states. Occasionally pronounced 'Caaaant' in british gangster films, where
we like to use it as often as possible. Still can't use it on tv pre-
watershed, though.

Cuppa cup of tea.

Dickhead idiot, twit.

Dodgy not right, questionable.

Dog's Bollocks Something described as being
this is, in fact, good. Surpassingly so.

*** Normally refers to a cigarette, as it's short
for '******' - the things we used to start fires with. ******* also refers to
the fatty meat you can buy at the butchers. Yes, it can also mean homosexual, but it's not often used to mean that. Practically never.
There's also the practice of '*******' at public schools (believed to have died out at some point around WW2 - younger boys (****) assigned to be the prefect's dogsbody.

***-end cigarette butt, really awful place/part
of a place.

Fanny front bottom. Please don't use this to refer to someone's arse, you'll just get giggled at. To fanny about is to mess about.

Football Americans call it soccer. The rest of
the world doesn't. We outnumber you.

Fuzz, the yet another word for our wonderful
policing constabulary.

Garage not only a place to keep your car or
get it repaired, but also the petrol/gas station, shop and a type of music
that's a combo of rap, dance, reggae and r'n'b.

Getting a leg over sex, or possibly power over
someone. Stick to the sex meaning, as the power meaning is very
delicate in usage.

Getting off Anything from kissing to sex to
coming.

Getting your end away sex

Git Idiot, wanker. Only *ever* applied to the
male of the species.

Goddamit/Goddamn/Goddamned No-one uses
this in Britain. If you ever hear it, it'll be used ironically and said in a very
bad American accent. So don't.

Goss gossip.

Grub Food

Guv short for 'guv'nor' (phonetic writing of
governor), which is used to refer to someone of higher status, often the
manager. Guv, however, is mostly used as a term of address rather than
referring to someone.

Having a butcher's Having a look. Rhyming slang, 'butcher's hook'.

Hooligan someone who engages in destructive
behaviour, normally towards public or someone else's property, also likely to involve stealing and getting into fights. Normally takes things too
far and resorts to violence. A sub-genus of this is the football hooligan, known for wanton destructive behaviour when following their team overseas for matches. Another word for these people are 'morons'. Also used by old people to describe young persons involved in behaviour not decorous enough for their tastes, normally prefaced by the word 'young'.

Innit Confirmation, similar to 'like'
or 'y'know'. 'It's sorted, innit?' (short for isn't it)

Knackered tired, over-wrought, dead. Comes
from the word we use for killing horses. A knacker is the person who kills
the horses, thus the phrase 'bound for the knacker's yard' when
something or someone is on its last legs.

Knickers Panties. Ye gods, can you sound any
more childish?

Lass young female, but fairly old fashioned in
the south, mostly used in the north/Wales/Cornwall/Scotland.

Lark, to Lark to mess about or have a good
time. To have a lark or go on a lark is to go off and mess about. The whole point is to be completely unproductive to society, though hopefully
without any major damage. A common whine heard after an accident
is 'we were only larking about' or 'it was just a lark'.

Lift elevator.

Lolly sweet on a stick, normally hard-boiled.
Short for lollipop. Ice lolly is what you call an ice pop. Also money.
Loo toilet. The word toilet also refers to the bathroom. Comes from the French 'Gardez loo (l'eau)' which is what they used to shout when
throwing the contents of the bedpan into the gutter in the street.

Loony Mad, nutter

Lorry Truck

Luv, ducks, dearie endearment. The only
people who use it anywhere nearly as much as American tv thinks we do are little old ladies in greasy spoon cafés. however, it is used.

Luvvie Actor that uses the words 'love'
and 'darling' a lot, often mid-upper class and highly respected, often belongs to the RSC (Royal Shakespeare Company). Kenneth Branagh, Emma Thompson, Derek Jacobi, Richard Attenborough, Simon Callow.

Moody, in a mood sulky, out of sorts, in a bit of
a temper.

Nick, to nick to steal, or to be caught (varies
due to situation) - used as a noun it means prison. Possibly one of the most classic phrases in The Sweeney (70s cop show) was 'Get your trousers on, you're nicked.', used when they busted in on a suspect when he was sleeping.

Nut, to nut hit someone or something with your
head. A Glasgow Kiss is to nut someone forehead to forehead, rather
forcibly, often done when about six inches apart and holding onto the front of opponent's shirt for better aim. Move often voted most likely to
render opponent insensible or incapable of retaliating for a period of time.

Nutter Weirdo, insa
ne. As in 'That bloke's a nutter!'

Pants underwear. They're *underwear*. Not
trousers. Also mild swearword.

Pillock yet another word for idiot, mostly used
for the male of the species. Amazing how many of these there are....

Plasters small sticky bandage-like thing you
put on cuts. Brand name here is Elastoplast, in the USA it's Band-Aid.

Ponce, to ponce Derogatory for posh or
chinless wonder. Also overtly flash or expensive. Someone who's not
hard in the slightest. However, not often used to mean gay, but it can
mean effeminate. And apparently slang at one time for pimping.

Poof gay bloke, someone a little light in the

loafers. It is not. Spelled. POUF. Got it?

Pulling, to pull Normally involves snogging, it's

the act of having 'got' someone for the night/evening/whatever. As in 'Get
your coat, luv, you've pulled.' (Note : Not a good idea. Huge turn off.)

Quid pound sterling. To be 'quids in' is to be in
there with a better-than-usual chance.

Rock, stick of long stick of hard-boiled, slightly chewy sweet with a thin brightly coloured outer layer (normally pink, can be any other colour, though preferably neon in its intensity) and a white
inner layer, with the name of the place it comes from in red lettering all
the way through. Mostly found in seaside towns, often brought back as rather crap presents for other members of family.

Silly Moo Twit. (female) But gentler, often used
as an endearment.

Slag slut

Slapper Like slut. Only not as harsh. Often
refers to clothes.

Slash to take a piss. Yes, it also means
cutting. (and in fanfic, gaygaygay)

Sloshed drunk

Smashing old fashioned, a bit upper class way
to say 'good'. Often used slightly sarcastically, and you may hear the
phrase 'Smashing Super Wow' in this context. You may also hear the
phrase 'jolly hockeysticks!' applied in the same tone, as it has a severe
association with boarding school stories.

Snogging Kissing. With tongues. Occasionally
groping.

Snookered out-smarted, defeated, drunk.
Refers to the point in a game of snooker (think more complex version of pool) when your opponent can't make a move without getting a fault.

Sodding, Sod mild swear word. We do use the
words 'fuck' and bugger' and 'your mother was a hamster' occasionally,
too. Translates as 'bit of earth' for the noun (think Good King Wenceslas -
'Heat was in the very sod that the saint had prin-ted') and it's short for
sodomising, for the verb. Yes, buggery is alive and well in the English language.

Stroppy, in a strop annoyed, short tempered.
To have a strop is to go off on someone.

Sweet F.A., Sweet Fanny Adams yep, we know
most translate this as 'Sweet Fuck All', which is what it basically means, thinking the Fanny Adams bit is the polite version. Fanny Adams is the original version. History of the phrase : Saturday, August 24th 1867, a little girl called Fanny Adams was murdered and dismembered in Alton, Hampshire, by solicitor's clerk Frederick Baker, and he distributed the bits around the countryside. This coincided with the introduction of tinned meat into the Navy, and one of the sailors took a look at the mess inside
and pronounced it as looking like 'Sweet Fanny Adams', basically a mish-mash that looked like nothing in particular.

Swot sort of like your nerd. The brainy ones,
but with a faint hint of disdain as though they're doing it for approval. To
swot is to revise.

Tart Slapper. Also a word for slut, or
hooker. Used to mean sweet, took on the connotation of being a bit
sharp, then became an insult.

Tights you call 'em pantyhose or nylons.
Stockings that join at the top. Superman wears them, as do women,
Merry Men in old Robin Hood films, actors in old productions of really bad
Shakespeare, and drag queens. Some of these are interchangeable.

Tosser, Wanker (-ing) masturbating male
person. Means 'sad' or idiot'.

Tuck, to tuck in food, normally sweets and
crisps purchased from the tuck shop at break time at school. To tuck in is to start eating.

Twat, to twat Stronger version of twit. Not
actually that rude. Though yes, it does mean fanny. I think. All those
using 'twat' as a verb are referring to hitting or completely flattening
someone. See Red Dwarf for correct usage.

Wanker, to wank, have a wank idiot, tosser,
mild insult. Refers to the male of the species. To masturbate.

Wimp Weakling, coward. Equivalent of the
american 'pussy'.

LONDON (Reuters) - Do chuggers bother you when you want to rock up to a restaurant with your cockapoo to hoover a supersized ruby murray?



Confused? Then you need to refer to the new Oxford Dictionary of English to understand a host of new words that appear for the first time in its latest edition.

Among the new entries are "potty-mouthed" (meaning using or characterized by bad language), "lush" (very good) and "scopophilia" (sexual pleasure derived chiefly from watching others when they are naked or engaged in sexual activity).

Some words, such as "demographic" (a particular sector of a population) have become commonplace but only now make it into the dictionary.

They are joined by those emerging from new technology like "phishing" (fraudulently sending emails purporting to be from reputable firms to get individuals to reveal personal details).

Many of the new words are simply formed by mixing two others together, such as charity and mugger making "chugger" (someone who approaches passers-by in the street asking for donations for a charity) and "labradoodle" (a cross between a Labrador retriever and a poodle).

"To suit the pace of our lifestyle today there is a growing tendency to mix words together to make entirely new ones called blends," the dictionary researchers said.

They also said there were now 350 ways of insulting someone -- from "chucklehead" to "muppet" -- ten times more than there were complimentary expressions, while there were 50 words for good-looking women, there were only about 20 for men.

And for those without a dictionary to hand, "rock up" means arrive, "cockapoo" is a mix between a cocker spaniel dog and a poodle, "hoover" means to eat something quickly, and "ruby murray" is rhyming slang for a curry.

Cinderella - there may have been some odd enhancements to the Kings English, but at least your language is somewhat preserved nationally.
My experience working in a global industry, cause me to believe the average rank and file UK citizen is far more skilled in proper English than we are in our "watered down" version.

Those of us who (or at least try to) speak with a modicum of grammatically sound and intelligent diction,
have to contend with nonsensical, almost farce-like affronts to my beloved American English.

Black Americans & their Ebonics.

Liberal Progressives force feeding us "Political Correctness" and it's assorted minutia of foolish euphemisms in order to try and make people "feel" better about themselves.

"White Trailer Trash" foregoing any attempt to preserve standards of language & American culture.

And culturally retarded, wealthy & middle class white "ghetto" boys actually believe somehow that they are actually from the "hood"...

I have no problem with evolved "American English", but the assault and affront to our language and culture as a whole is horrifying..

And it's only going to get "worsa" as our borders go unchecked. Cheers mate! and forgive my :sb: rant.

And culturally retarded, wealthy & middle class
white "ghetto" boys actually believe somehow that they are actually from
the "hood"...


i have heard people speak like that even here in england and they look
and sound pathetic in my book ... it amuses me to think they actualy think they are cool...
when all they are doing is making themselves look foolish

i think a lot of this is caused by laziness, fashion, lack of Education, or
copying... ( well thats my opinion anyway )

sorry i wont go on and on ....

BUT i do have to say i love the bostonian accent .. i could sit here and listen
to it all day ... everytime someone spoke to me i smiled lol
