'I am with the Metropolitan Police..'
"I ain't being funny, right, but..."
That's A LOT of people.
But I am half American and hang out with quite a few Americans.
i still dont know what this means.
think Tony Hart. You've just thought of a caveat.
damn romans with their americanisms
Translation: "Do this now"
"brigade" will do it for me
for those of a left political persuasion. Do you feel the same way about the use of the term "conservatives"?
Don't feel the same way about "conservatives", no, cos it's not subject to the same warping of meaning. There's still the widely accepted small c big C distinction for a start.
It's the source of some of his best material
"at the end of the day"
"at the coal face"
"I'm literally going to explode with anticipation!!!!"
No you're not you stupid fucking shitehawk wankerface gobshite cunt.
in which every use of the word 'literally' is substituted with 'figuratively.'
I once overheard someone in the pub saying "he's got fingers in literally every pie".
Maybe one of their friends is a clumsy baker?
also, any other catchphrases from adverts - 'it'll be simples'
...It's gonna be totally 'just £3 a month can save others like her from dying from preventable diseases'!!!111"
usually in combination
Like "Paul Gascoigne's gone mad again" or "Paul Gascoigne's become a nanny state again"?
"Paul Gascoigne is politically correct" is something not often heard.
I instantly agree with anyone who says those two words
hammer > face > getaway
Anyone who says 'no offence' usually is trying to offend you, and thus, is a sociopath cock-end.
although it doesn't make me automatically disagree with someone as agreeable people say it, annoyingly.
it usually isn't
They're usually not
also: i miss foppyish. he was always on hand to validate my puns.
Is it short for something or is it just a made-up word? What would a dictionary defnition of it be?
Its just shabs innit
SHABS: abbreviation of SHock ABsorber.
SHABS: 'street term' for Crystal Methamphetamine.
I'm too frightened to say it to myself
(although still no answer).
Humorous chat (since extended to include humorous pranks or 'hi-jinks'), usually with a potentially offensive edge.
Wrightylew uses it in a non-ironic fashion and this is who TheWza is referring to. Wrighty's use has caused it to be a 'comedy' DiS meme.
The word 'pseudo' prefixing anything
but at least he was actually funny
Don't think I know any.
(Aside from 'Marketing People - go kill yourself'.)
instead of "skilled"
but that phrase is just shorthand for "i'm a tryhard and i know my popular culture better than you".
"You obviously haven't read the comic coz blah blah blah whatever"
Piss off mate, you only bought the comic the other day. You brought it into the break room and made sure everyone saw it. Fucking comic poser prick.
Are you okay OneTermPresident?
Someone I know used the word "chicktionary" without a hint of irony the other day. I wanted to push him down some stairs.
"Some fitties in my year. Looking to expand my chicktionary by at least 200%"
[insert name] he/she is so Random/Wacky or the worst spontaneous, fucking spontaneous just no!
(Mr Sheen is a racist)
If you're talking about an actual revolution, then fair enough.
If you're talking about music, kill yourself.
I had a friend who said, "The thirties are the new twenties..."
PEOPLE THAT claim to 'like all music' when that's physically impossible.
GF:"Oh I like anything"
GF:"Yeah, I'm not that bothered"
<puts on Slayer "War Ensemble">
GF:"Oh fuck, what's that? Can we listen to something else"
<Puts on 16bit remix of Noisia's "Machine Gun">
GF:"Let me have a look, I'll put something on"
<some time later>
GF:"I don't recognise any of this"
ME:"It's fine, here put that on"
<Space Streakings "F.O.J.K" starts>
GF:"NO, it's just noise"
ME:"Thought you liked anything"
GF:"I didn't mean /ANYTHING/ did I? Put on some proper music not this noise metal shite"
<Puts on Moloko playlist>
or even "Minimal", to be honest, when anyone uses it to talk about interior design on the telly.
has anybody said "real music" yet?
"What's all this pop rubbish? People should listen to REAL music like Ocean Colour Scene. Enough said."
Although this has reminded me of another phrase I hate: "It's a great pop song", which people generally seem to use to distance themselves from the song, in a "I don't normally listen to this" kind of way.
''our lads/our boys'' when talking about british soldiers.
''stupid o' clock'' when talking about getting up early/staying up late
..also "if you don't like (insert band name / song) you don't like music"
..and finally "(insert band) are shit"...without any kind of constructive argument or anything..yeah thanks for the pearls of wisdom bellend..
Very annoying. FACT.
I also get turned off by a load of web language eg 'fail' and 'win' used as adjectives as mentioned above, as well as silly acronyms like 'FTW' and 'IMHO' - for me, they make whatever argument is being offered a whole lot less worth reading for me.
i fucking hate that for some reason. it always seems so smug.
SOURCES PLEASE OR GTFO.
Fault. It is your fucking FAULT, not your fucking BAD!
also, anyone who starts a sentence with 'I think you'll find' specially if it's accompanied by a nasal tone
Used to be a classic line on Ricki Lake...
...not that I watched it.
