What's your favorite idiom or slang term?

(I'm still stupid for cat macros, myself.)

Just one?

- What gives?
- So far, so good.
- Throw the baby out with the bathwater.
- Between a rock and a hard place.
- What's up?

Re: Just one?

Heh. Well, obviously more than one is acceptable.

Thanks!

Just yesterday, I was appreciating "asshattery". I'm also quite fond of "a big can of whupass" and "more x than you can shake a stick at".

And, oddly enough, I've always loved the expression "drop trou".

I love both asshattery and drop trou. Definitely among my favorites as well.

to quote Herbert Kornfeld:

"I swear, if I see any of y'all within three feet of my computer,
I'll put a Lee Van Cleef on your bitch ass. I'll come at you like a mother
fuck."

Uhm.... not sure I have one. Depends on what I'm writing, and whether I am enacting a persona (for roleplay.)

"Duuude" is one that I use fairly often to express emotional context through tonal modulation.

I also rather enjoy the occasional foray into LoLCat, and I'm fond of the placement of "so" as an intensifier prefix, as in, "I SO do not want to clean my apartment for the Thursday inspection."

"Fuck me sideways!"
"Don't come a raw prawn with me!"
"You shot who in the what now?"
"I'm gonna corpse you up and mail you home to mamma!"
"She'll be right"
"Bah!"

Don't come a raw prawn with me!

Dude. WTF? Is that a southern thang or a Texan thang?

I used to say "Fuck me sideways!" a lot in college and I had a friend who always added "With a chainsaw!"

Corpse you up is nice... I like that.

Neither- it's an Aussie thing. It's our way of saying "Don't bullshit me" *g*

Corpse you up comes from THE SIMPSONS!

Right! Duh.

Despite the fact that you regularly talk about AU, my brain did a stupid, Americo-centric fart of blasphemy. My apologies.

And that's still an awesome phrase. I wonder if I can use it in public without getting arrested.

I recently discovered that one of my favorite exclamations of appreciation - "that's the bomb diggidy!" - is street/hood/projects slang. Weird. Wonder where the hell I picked that up.

In an AMAZING piece of synchronicity, this weekend I read Chronicles of Wormwood by Garth Ennis (writer) and Jacen Burrows (artist), a collected comic trade paperback from Avatar Press.

The pope, who insists on being called "Pope Jocko" uses the phrase "Don't come a raw prawn with me!" and I knew what it meant!

I was very pleased. Pope Jocko is both funny and probably really insulting to Australians. I highly recommend the comic though; damn funny and rude and obnoxious. It's about the antichrist and his best friend, Jay (better known as Jesus), who've both told their dads to fuck off.

Ennis is da bomb diggity.

Love that man.

This book is not to be confused with Wormwood: Gentleman Corpse, another recent comics collection in trade paperback. This one is by Ben Templesmith, another crazy comicker. But Ben's Australian! Both made me laugh, but Ben's made me laugh harder and longer. And I'm pretty sure one of his characters is there to mock Constantine (Hellblazer).

Late, as usual


I've been told that my reframing of the socially inexcusable belching as 'BARGE COMING THROUGH!' is the single thing I say most often. This disturbs me.

"Fuck me harder!"
"In deep kimchee"
"haven't even started boiling the water yet"

This last is about three steps sideways from the idiom, "our plans aren't set in stone. They're set in jello!' or sometimes "they aren't even set in jello!" well, before you can set the jello you have to boil the water, and pick the flavor, and...

apparently I use it too often and confuse people muchly who haven't even heard the first piece of it, never mind the derivatives...
