    Ok. Here is another Macs and... thread. Thanks for the insperation Jef. So this thread comes from that plus the conversation of "nutter" in another thred. So what I want here is sayings or slang that you have in your State or country. Eye, you should have quite a few. I should be able to get the Mrs. in on this one, as I know that Cajuns have plent o'sayings.

    So, let them fly.

    u wanna coke?

    ok...this is completely a southern thing...

    When u are at someone's house & they offer u a softdrink, u will not be asked if u would like a soda or softdrink...

    we always ask if u want a coke...

    then if u say yes...we'll ask..."well we have coke, sprite, diet coke..."

    don't ask...I don't know how it got started... ;)

    Re: u wanna coke?

    OMG that is so true. I have always liked that one. We also tend to relate fighting to nature events. Example. "Boy you say one more word, and I am gonna be on you like a Duck on a June Bug."

    knit caps.

    Redneck Californians call them "Beenies" because hispanic gang members tend to use the Football team ones as identifiers.

    As a Canadian I find this annoying for 2 reasons:

    1. It's derogatory.

    2. IT"S A TOOK DAMMIT!!!!:D

    Re: u wanna coke?

    Yeah, and in Canada and nothern states you hear "Want a pop?" I...DO NOT...like that word! Soda's okay. Soda pop's okay. But not pop! Just my own personal pet peeve. :)

    Smegheads!! :D

    verbal garbage:

    Ever notice you can tell where you are by what nonsense punctuation folks add to their sentences?


    Suffixes:
    Canadians: eh (pronounced "Ay" ); Californians: Y'know?; Dumbasses: Dude.

    Prefixes:

    Californians have several interesting ones: Omigod (swallow first and last vowel); So like..( pron: s'lyk).

    I'm sure I'm missing a few (thousand) eh?

    ;)

    here are a couple

    saying "porsh" for porsche

    or "beemer" for bmw

    being a boat, airplane, and car enthusiast, it makes me cringe when i hear these terms...i think these terms are the invention of the dumbest californians who think they are being hip

    omigod, dude, check out that porsh:D

    prawly - probably

    bal-mor - Baltimore pronounced by the natives

    go *acrost* the street - hate this one and I want to correct people when they say it. Another MD saying.

    These are more regional - anyone know that site where you can convert sentences into different psuedo-languages, my favorite was English to Jive, reminds me of that scene on Airplane....

    No matter if it is a mile, or 400 miles, we measure everything in time.

    How far is it to NOLA? 4 hours.

    Atlanta? 2.5 hours etc.

    California and 420

    420
    4:20 PM
    and 04/20 (April 20th)

    Are all hallowed festival days for stoners worldwide. At Humboldt and UCSC the whole campus stops for stoner style tea-time at 4:20 PM.

    An explaination exists here:http://www.hightimes.com/aboutus/FAQFile/index.html

    Though this is not the most comprehensive.;)

    Not really slang but funny.

    when I was a bouncer, I would tell people that if they fought me....

    "three things are going to happen. #1 your going to loose the fight. #2 your going to go to jail, and #3 your going via Tulane medical center.

    It was funny.

    Oh, another thing here. If you want tea, it is always brought to you sweet unless you request unsweet.
