Slang can come from any period of time. JD Sports just emailed me offering some kicks. Don’t call my wheels, kicks, twats!

Theres a DLC release on Friday for a game I play, and about 10 youtubers got early access and I had to turn each and every one of them off because they kept using crap new slang. I mean, I’m all for new words that the youth use, but gamer speak seems embarrassing on a whole new level.

am I still ok to say “cheerio”?

I like saying cheerio

I bet they’re the illest!

I remember my uncle calling people ‘shag’ waaaay back, is that new elsewhere?

Then again he also calls people “duck”, “Petal” and “flower” with no differentiation between genders, so he might not be a good barometer.

apparently ‘phoney’ came into fruition just after the invention of the telephone

people were worried that the callers might be fraudsters or fake people so they called them ‘phonies’

anyway, enjoy your day
