Slang January 04, 2006 8:10 AM

Each generation has it's own slang, such as today's... 24/7, on-line, metrosexual...ect. What slang words or expressions did Baby Boomers lay claim to?

Okay confess., did you ever say..... Groovy, Far Out, or Boss?

Thanx again George-- haven't been stoned in years.  Wasn't that big a deal back then...

You better watch what you say Christy!  The Bush administration may be monitoring these messages.  Have you ever heard of the "Patriot Act"?

Peace Sister!

AAaaaahhhh  HHhhhaaaaa!  I say trippy  all the time!  I knew, somehow, it must be from "earlier periods of my life".  Sometimes it doesn't seem like that long ago..., but, people tilt their heads as if they've never heard the term before!  I understand trippy.  What's the matter with those who don't? 

I almost wouldn't mind being on a government "watch list", if I thought they were able comprehend the brilliant things I have to say.  Other than that, my being watched by "Big Brother" just pisses me off!

a rhetorical conversation that I overheard once.... January 06, 2006 7:46 PM

"Hey, man, how much is it to buy a lid?"

"Ten bucks."

"Far out!"

"Hang ten, dude."

"For sure."

Lid, oh, wait, oh, yeah-- okay-- lid!  Yeah!  Lid!

Lid used to be an honest measurement.  Some reliable standard to go by...

Glad I quit.

What's a kilo go for and Pigs January 06, 2006 11:13 PM

I never did know what a kilo was, but I figured it was big.

It's ok. Georgie puffed too.

My uncle was a cop in Pomona Cali, back in the day.

They had a program during xmas there they went into the low income housing and gave toys to the kids.

After handing a  little  boy a toys the boy responded "OH THANK YOU MR PIG" and really meant it. lol
