This is a question Slang Survey

What new bit of language are you hearing at the moment? We want to hear words and phrases, with definitions and where it's being used. We're interested in marketing speak, stuff from kids in playgrounds etc.

Too Many Ponies, Not Enough guns
"Too Many Ponies, Not Enough Guns" - an event or situation that does not live up to expectations or requirements.

"That pub had too many ponies and not enough guns"
"You are the pony, I am the gun".

Inspired by a poster outside the Playhouse in Edinburgh featuring some incredibly cheesy looking chap. Paul something-or-other, can't remember.

Gay as a biscuit
Gay as a window
Gay as chips

Not intended to be homophobic but seriously, you should have seen the poster. Camp as a turret...

When something is gross our kids give it the Ewwww rating from 1 to 10. For instance, the cat hurling up a hairball would rate an Ewwww factor 5, stepping on the hairball with bare feet - Ewwww factor 9. Seeing someone pick their nose would be an Ewwww factor 8, seeing them eat the boogar - Ewwww factor 10.

Dog - used as a description for "unpleasant conditions".


In a case of a bad smell - "It's a bit dog in here"

In a case of a cold/rainy/windy day - "It's DOG out there."

In a case of one feeling unwell - "I is dog."

Catching on around the playground of Sheffield University. It's a nice word to say in a bad way.

Oh boy
When I'm about to bollock a load of students for not turning up to lectures, we describe it as an "attitude readjustment session"

We're not allowed to use the words "stupid" or "rubbish" when marking work (it offends the sensitive souls), so I use phrases such as "this work demonstrates a number of outstanding knowledge opportunities"

ooh, I like this topic.
My favourite slang phrase I heard recently is "she was wetter than an otter's pocket". In my opinion that phrase is as good as the phrase "feeding the pony" (as in rubbing a girl between the legs).

Batch catchers is a good term for condoms, as is fucksox.

And if all else fails, and you can't remember the word you are looking for just use the word TRITS. It can mean anything you want it to mean.

and another
"a bit council" - to look cheap & nasty, as though it belongs on/comes from a council estate. Can be used for describing people or inanimate objects:

"look at her over there - she looks a bit council"

"I don't like these shelves - they're a bit council"

Rubble Sack.
Like "double bagger" for persons of questionable beauty, but used for more industrial scale purposes.

"That lass over there, nice body, but she really needs a rubble sack for that face."

Obviously I never use this sort of term.
I heard some bigger boys saying it, and wanted to look cool.

Bish, meaning fookin wicked, excelent ect.

The word evolved from majestic, which in turn led to Madge which then led to Bishop as in Madge Bishop from Neighbours fame the next obvious step of course was of course BISH the rest is History.

Have really found this website funny, full of frantic Internet wanking geeks! Am worried that now I have posted I am one too! Don't think so!

"Niggi" or "Nigi"
I happened to be walking by a group of young black people who were apparently getting into some kind of a clamjamfry (see below about 5-6 posts)and one of them called another by the name "niggi".
It must mean something really bad, cuz they all went "ooooooooohhh!"

Clamjamfry: used by me & mates...
...to describe a "not quite a fight" where there's lots of jumper pulling and shouting. Came from MacGonnagle (sp?) the Dundee "poet".

Also, cheese sandwich to describe a scoper, or cheese baguette for an extreme scoper. Addition of branston, salad etc denotes level of spackdom. Origins unknown...

And finally, when Rizla, dope, or time only allow a wee spliff, you have a single-tingle

Set on fire and beaten out with the ugly bat
I favour "face like a welder's bench"

We also adopted a scale of madness, in increasing order:

Mad as a bag of weasels
Mad as a box of frogs
Mad as a blender full of bees
and finally
Mad as Cheese. That's pretty damn mad I can tell you.
Although I believe there is an Aussie expression "mad as a cut snake" not sure where that fits in. any suggestions?

My nickname comes from my tutor at College. I was forever botching (fixing temporarily) something hours before it was to be presented, only to find it worked better the new way, so was left like it. He used to look at the project and say "You've Rik H'd That." ANyone that knows me now regularly refers to dodgy fixes as Rikaitches
