SLANG CHECKUP IS UP

Postby Dr. Goodword » Wed Aug 30, 2006 11:10 pm

The new slang test, the alphaDictionary Slang Generation Checkup, is up and running.

Thanks for all the input. It was very helpful.

Oh yeah the sixties. WNCW just played Ricki Lee Jones' cover of Gloria. That just took me right back to the local dances, where there wasn't a garage band in sight that didn't do Gloria and Louie Louie. Far out!

Ricki Lee Jones covered Gloria!? That's just wrong.

10-15 years ago, the Washington State Legislature was voting on a new official state song. If I recall correctly, Louie Louie was one of the three finalists. (The Kingsmen were from Washington.) It finished a close second in the voting.

Ricki just wished Chuck E was in love with her!
The New!Revised! version placed me correctly.

Louie Louie as a state song? That would be groovy.

In my opinion, if there's any state that Louie Louie would fit, it'd be Washington. It'd probably work for Oregon as well.

nope not Oregon, if the song got a little sickly they'd put it to sleep, forever!
Yay Oregon, Kevorkian is so proud of you.

Seems to me Richard Berry (of Louisiana) should have a say in that...

1950s: Does the thought of pegged pants and poodle skirts make you tingle?

Was a teenager in the 60's, so parents slang and movie slang influenced me. Also slang in the UK is different to USA and Scotland had some of its own :lol:
Money was "dough","bread" or "Siller".

Prison is "the clink" or "inside".
