'Snot fair

I say horrid! I shall stop at once grin

My friend and I say totes amaze only as a piss take I couldn't imagine actually meaning it.

meddie Fri 16-Nov-12 07:39:53

Amazeballs, totes, well jel.. any of the essex word contractions.

Really grates when people add a K to hospital and little... likkle and hospikal.

A combination of wha Chaz and mummytime said.

Only a parent can use the in words ironically to wind up their teens.

Actually can I add words where D is used instead of TH.

As in "dem kids wot said dat"

MissRabbitsCV Fri 16-Nov-12 07:42:38

This has made me laugh. A group of women in our circle of friends say amazeballs, go on holibobs and one refers to her mum as Mumsie.

They also go on fairy weekends where they make fairy wings.

You're all 42 fgs!

Santa you haven't met my "trying too hard to be cool" 29yo cousin.

Can't delete from fb without causing wwiii but even though I hide his shite from my feed, I still see the other stuff he posts to other family members.

The words are sickening... But making fairy wings is under-rated. You should just try going to Morrisons wearing fairy wings! grin grin

I would like to defend AMAZEBALLS. it does have it's uses, in limited circumstances e.g.
"David Hasselhoff will be performing in his underpants"

ok can I add a string of words?

Anyone who ends anything (other than a web address/email address) with .com.


Well I'm pissing!!!!

SecretSparkle Fri 16-Nov-12 08:03:06

oh and I think if we're cringing at the work bub, we should probably do the same for bab/baby (bab-ee)

frantic51 Fri 16-Nov-12 08:07:42

I used to call my dear, departed mother, "Mummy" and, "Mumsie" and I'm a lot older than 42! I think you're all being just horrid! wink

Any of those idiotic contractions of names that Grazia seems to apply to public figures in order to infantilise them i.e. R-Pattz, K-Stew, K-Middy.

IceBergJam Fri 16-Nov-12 08:17:55

We ask DD if she wants 'booby juice'.

I can't actually pronounce 'th' or hear the difference.

WorraLiberty Fri 16-Nov-12 09:08:15

Anyone who says "Hash tag" before another word needs a poke in the eye.

Hash tag angry angry

Scrooge was mean with his money.

The mean average can be more easily biased by outliers than the median.

Do you understand what I mean by that?

Some Victorian freakshows included a "snot fair" where interesting specimens of nasal discharge were displayed.

Bobbie in The Railyway Children is a girl yes, it's short for Roberta. Bobbies were quite common around that time.

mummytime Fri 16-Nov-12 09:12:20

IceBergJam, were you raised in the UK or with English speaking parents?

Just curious, as I know all baies are supposed to be born with the ability to hear all sounds used in all languages, but gradually lose the ability to "hear" the ones not in their mother tongue, or the languages used around them as a baby.

BTW I smile

WorraLiberty Fri 16-Nov-12 09:14:47

Trills, I have no idea why I read your post like a Kevin Bacon ad grin

Anniegetyourgun Fri 16-Nov-12 09:15:46

I use quite a few of those in a sort of ironic, post-modernist sense. And you can't stop me. So there. (Never "bubs" or "hubs" though, I have my standards.)

Kalisi Fri 16-Nov-12 09:17:40

Lully instead of lovely. Infact lovely is pretty shit as well hmm

stifnstav Fri 16-Nov-12 09:20:01

Worra I have never heard anyone actually say hashtag but if I did I would probably die. It would be like a scene from The Ring.

lottiegarbanzo Fri 16-Nov-12 09:25:27

Softlysoftly, i think you'll find that 'much more betterer' is perfectly acceptable smile

I do think people here are wrong about horrid. It's old-fashioned rather than childish. I used it the other day and had one of those moments of realisation that I sound more 'posh' than I think I do.

YeahBuddy Fri 16-Nov-12 09:28:04

Yy to the .com shite!

Also soz and simples make me slightly stabby angry
