Too Damned Funny. Expanded Vocab Anybody?

with one comment

Just got sent these by a mate. Guessing the original was written by a British male backpacking in Australia while reconciling self with homophobic tendencies BUT is still pretty damned funny. Please feel free to use in a sentence or leave your own. My own word for the week is Calenged (adj): dysfunctional relationship with calendar, may extend to diaries and clocks.

New Words for 2007

SALAD DODGER: An overweight person.
BLAMESTORMING: Sitting round in a group, discussing why a deadline was missed or a
Project failed, and who was responsible.
SITCOMs: Single Income, Two Children, Oppressive Mortgage. What yuppies turn
into when they have children and one of them stops working to stay home with the kids or start a “home business”.
SINBAD: Single income, no boyfriend and desperate.
AEROPLANE BLONDE: One who has bleached/dyed her hair but still has a ‘black box’.
PERCUSSIVE MAINTENANCE: The fine art of whacking the crap out of an electronic device to get it to work again.
GOING FOR A McSHIT: Entering a fast food restaurant with no intention of buying food, you’re just going to the bog. If challenged by a spotty staff member, your declaration to them that you’ll buy their food afterwards is known as a McSh!t with Lies.
404: Someone who’s clueless. From the World Wide Web error message “404 Not Found” meaning that the requested document could not be located.
AUSSIE KISS: Similar to a French Kiss, but down under.
OH – NO SECOND: That minuscule fraction of time in which you realize that you’ve just
made a BIG mistake (e.g. you’ve hit ‘reply all’).
GREYHOUND: A very short skirt, only an inch from the hare.                SWAMP-DONKEY: A deeply unattractive person.
JOHNNY-NO-STARS: A young man of substandard intelligence, the typical adolescent who works in a burger restaurant. The ‘no-stars’ comes from the badges displaying stars that staff at fast-food restaurants often wear to show their level of training.
