My six year old came home from school last week and told me that all his teachers are 'cunts'.

I went to a parents evening last Friday - he was right.

part of your memory where you store mental images of attractive ladies for later use during onanism. eg - "Phwoar, look at the charlies on that".

"Indeed - another one for the wankbank, I think".

Also, poodunnit. When a shared/communal lavatory either stinks of shit or is inhabited by a particularly stubborn floater, but no one is prepared to own up to it.

a typical bedroom conversation with my partner
(no meanings given - should be easy to guess)

"I'm still queuing outside."
"Yes I can tell. Ouch! Stop Pushing!"
"It's OK just relax."
"Ouch. No! No, it's no good. You'll have to have a word with the doorman."
"*sigh* OK"

(a couple of mins pass by)
"OK now"
"Yeah. Ow! Christ not so hard!"

Courtesy of my flatmate DOM, referring to disability aids with the beadle prefix, eg rails in toilets are beadle-rails, and the handle on a taxi driver's steering wheel is a 'beadle-wheel'
Also used instead of butter-fingers - 'you dropped your pint, fucking beadlehands!'

Cheeseburger Happy Meal
This originates from a girl we know getting a ride home from a guy. He took her to McDonald's on the way home and bought her a Cheeseburger Happy Meal. She claimed she felt obligated to perform fellatio on him for this favour (cost: about $5 CAD). She requested he play "Pretty Fly For A White Guy" by the Offspring, and when she was done, she let him come on her norks.

(Sorry for the vulgarity?)
So now, when someone does you a favour, instead of "you owe me one", you say "Cheeseburger Happy Meal" (there's no sexual connotation in this usage, at least not typically)... we're trying to spread it outside the GTA, so feel free to use it locally!

Also, when someone/something annoys you/me, it's getting "on your tits" or "on my tits"

The correct term for the burberry-cap-wearing FCUK-t-shirt-trackie-bottoms-trainers half-a-tache underclass are pikies. Or Pikey, singular.

Some old, one brand new.
"Timmies" are how my friends who work at the local welfare office refer to those who recieve a disability pension. From the Southpark character of course.

Asking a mate "Go down for a dollar?" isn't a request for oral pleasure. It's shorthand for "I'm bored of this pub/club. Wanna go somewhere more interesting?" Used mainly towards the females in the group.

"Michelle" is a g-string. Used in public places to point out girls wearing anal floss without seeming to be a perve. "Is that Michelle?" "Yes, I think that's Michelle." "No, that's not Michelle."

Umm, "Anal Floss" hasn't been listed yet either. It's a g-string.

And one I've been meaning to coin for a while now. "Woo-plaint" As in "I'd like to make a woo-plaint." It's a complaint about something that's too good to ignore, but ends up sucking away great portions of your otherwise productive life, like spending hours reading these b3ta threads every week.

Weird one from Uni
At Wells Hall in Reading Uni, there's an insult "Mattock".

Mattock - young man who has been in his first year and at Wells Hall for 5 years, and was once caught wanking into a bin.

About twelve or thirteen years ago...
when I was still at school in Huddersfield, me and a mate were making up new words- this was something to do in those long periods when the teachers disappeared to do paperwork/take antidepressants/screw the art teacher or something else that was deemed more important than teaching. One of us, I can't remember if it was me or him, came up with the word 'bab'.

We both found it extremely funny- a more comic version of the same thing as both 'crap' and 'shit'. We began using it in general conversation- "that's bab", or "you're a babstain". It began to be used by other kids at our school- a whole new swearword to add to our limited vocabulary. Then other people started to use it. As time went on, when I began to meet people make friends from further afield (like Halifax or Leeds, etc), they'd sometimes say 'bab'. And I occasionally hear people say it now, even though I now live in Aberystwyth and the people who say it have never been to Yorkshire. Is that cool or wot?

Well probably not, no. But if any celebrity ever says "bab" on TV, this will be our claim to fame...

There are two that I can recall from my misspent youth in Manchester
Bobbins: meaning that something is crap. ("That's bobbins, that is")

The sound of a thousand bananas being peeled: the sound of masturbation.

Euphemistically speaking
I heard these euphemisms recently and they made me arf, although they sound like they might have come via Viz...
'The Oompah-Loompah's are on strike at the chocolate factory', meaning one is suffering from constipation. The other, 'to eat sushi off the barber shop floor.' Ask your dad if you don't get that one.

This is a little weird, but...
"ghurr.. ezzay cammo niyah" is what I say when I can't think of what to say. I also say "Nysen noissen nysen" when someone tells me something I don't agree with, and "ezack-snack-shinoik-c'nack!" is what I shout when something strange and unexpected happens and I don't know what to do.

I know, I'm strange.

"Rough as toast"
I have no idea what it means, but my flatmate from Halifax says it.

Oh, and upon leaving a shop, most likely with stolen goods, the more discrening ghetto child will say "Hoods up, dip out".

"Special Hell"
From Joss Whedon's Firefly - the Shepherd informs Malc that this is where he's going if he succumbs to the advances of an underage girl.
Now used in the better parts of Guildford to describe a young girl who you would...but you know you shouldn't.
Also "Mauve" - applies to behaviour which you might describe as classy if you could get your sarcasm cranked up high enough e.g., washing down a donner kebab with a £300 Chateau Neuf du Pape.
