in days of school goneby??
What other words did you use at school that would sound ridiculous now....
I think taxed was used a little bit but I've not heard the others.
I have no idea what brook means, but cussing and taxing were very much in the vocab.
See also "dark", "swag", "blaps", "air", "air-lingy", "butters" and the unspellable "waaaarrrllw".
pretty much all of stealhy's one's too apart from the last.
It's kinda like the sound Sonic makes when he falls into a bottomless pit and functioned as the all-purpose designator of a less-than-favourable result until it was replaced by FAIL sometime in the middle of year 9.
was a phrase used by smokers wanting a fag
"crash me a beer"
it still works
I never personally used it but I heard it said a lot.
I can see it being hilarious though particularly if it was used when discussing man u's victory over another team.
He'd try to pull off a Punk'd-style trick on some of his unsuspecting teammates. Most famously he had someone pick up David Beckham in a limo and then drive him aimlessley around London when the man had to get to the airport - eventually, he was so angry that he just got out and got a taxi. Most of the pranks were just ways of annoying people.
At the end it would zoom back to Rio standing in the middle of some industrial estate dystopia, the kind of grass-through-concrete wonderland where Jimmy the Greek might lose a leg or two, and the footballer would triumphantly declare, "He saw through it, but for a second he wasn't completely sure. Mate, you got merk'd!"
It wasn't very good.
what was it called?
Because the pranks were really just annoying (I think one of them was arresting Gary Neville for pissing on a wall or something, meaning he was also late to a meeting) it meant that the rest of the England squad basically detested him throughout the competition.
It's actually called "Merk'd"!
I forgot about the piss-poor Rooney one at the vets. It's genuinely hilarious, because you know the Wayne doesn't buy it from the very beginning.
Also dig Rio's terribly enthusiastic voice-over.
to knifing them (if you believe the more hysterical elements of the media).
murk is just an american pronunciation
Choring (robbing) was another one that got used all the time at my school
where you'd get a wooly scarf or hat and hit someone in the eye, so it went all bloodshot and watery. my mate was blinded for like a whole day off one. i was superb at it in year 7/8. and pinball in the corridors <3.
we said taxed a lot. there was a lot of theivery in my school.
which was basically kicking a tennis ball against a small concrete wall....it was all about the angles I tell ya!
as a term to describe an amusing situation.
I would occasionally throw in a, "vexin" or "vexed". But that's as old as Shakespeare so it's fine.
