The Dictionary of English Slang

Post by 92220 on Tue Feb 07, 2012 4:27 pm

In order to help those who may have difficulty with English Slang usage, THIS is the Dictionary of English Slang, words beginning with "B".

Those who are unfairly accusing me of swearing can find the word they find offensive slightly below "Birmingham screwdriver" which is a term for a hammer. Interestingly enough "botch job" is also on that page. Twisted Evil

Geoffrey Chaucer would be proud. Now there was a man who could find a great insult at the drop of a hat! I recommend, from the "Canterbury Tales" the Host's comments to the Pardoner (transcribed from the original middle english):
"I wish I had your ballocks in my hand, instead of relics in a reliquarium. Have them cut off. I'll help you carry them. I will have them shrined for you, in a hog's turd!!"
The Pardoner said nothing. Not a word. He was so full of ire he could not speak.

Now, THAT's how to tell 'em. Invective is not yet dead, one hopes.
