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.

RE: Pramface
Their official name is charvers or just generally charvs. They are in their thousands round here.
And it's really annoying.

Don't know if it counts as slang as such...
But one of my favourite put downs (which I sadly can't take credit for) is to reply to any kind of insult with "Yeah? Well your mum still owes my dog fuck money."

Try it sometime- though not to your brother- kind of takes the shine off it if you know what I mean?

I've just coined one in the office
my colleages were looking at something and one said, 'that reminds me of liquorice torpedos'

Having never heard this term before, a thought popped into my mind. "is that a euphemism for a black man's dangly bits?" No, I was informed, it's a type of candy confection thus

Of course, from this day forth, in my office at least, it will indeed be a euphemism for BMW.

I think this is a great word.
Credited to Becca.

insults of sorts
Don't know where it came from or even what it means, but i find 'fuck-knuckle' quite a useful term. I also quite like 'Lord of the gays'.

Both of these are great to use as insults or just as general exclamations of frustration etc.

I can't believe...
...that my girlfriend had never heard the term "Spaz Chariot" for one of those old blue 3-wheeler invalid carriages that they no longer make, but were common in the 70's.
She nearly wet herself.

Likewise, she'd never heard the term 'Special Shoes' to denote the calipers/ legirons type thing that kids with polio (ask your parents, sonny) used to have to wear, and thus used as an insult for anyone who couldn't run/ catch/throw properly in games lessons. as in: "What's up with you, boy? Do you require special shoes?" I loved our games teacher, such a wag....

On the plus side, i.e. not derogatory or unpleasant, I did hear one of the commentators on the snooker last night say that one of the players was "doing a Crocodile Dundee", i.e. gone walkabout, when he was wandering round the table looking for an angle on one of the colours.
