Crossfit CS

Has been added to the blogroll. I know some of you are visiting, so I figured I'd return the favor.

And I'll be picking up that Scottish-English dictionary any day now . . . .

Thanks...will try and keep the Scottish slang to a minimum.

TexasPatrick said...

No, by all means, slang away!! That way I can say things to idiot co-workers, idiot drivers, my kids, and they'll never know what I'm going on about. That is the until the day they say something like "Full stop!!" or somesuch . . . ;-)

"punter" was a favorite of my old boss... not sure exactly what it meant but I'm pretty sure it wasn't a pleasantry....

TexasPatrick said...

I still want confirmation on "bampots". I don't even know if it's one or two words . . .

CrossFitCS said...

Bampot is one word and is just a derogatory name to call some one

some other choice words to call people -

eejit
diddy
fud

and my favourite
fannybaws

Now that's what I'm talkin' about!!

Hmm. I've got to think up some U.S. slang that you wouldn't already know . . . so we can continue this crosscultural mission . . . .

metric said...

Punter is non-derogatory.

Generally = customer.
Strictly it's someone placing a bet (a punt), usually on the horses.
Also more loosely used as a generic term for person.

TexasPatrick said...

Oooh, good one.

I just draw a blank though when I try and think up things I say that aren't widely known, but are still slangy.

I mean, the only one's I've got are like dweeb, wussie (or the whus variant), tard, and fuglie.

But y'all probably know those . . .

metric said...

fuglie I hadn't heard.

I dunno, you're coming up with your own dialect that others are adopting now and extending.

TexasPatrick said...

fuglie = shorthand for f***ing ugly . . .

Quite rude . . . but still funny.

Yes, I'm getting quite the linquistic following . . . muahahaaa!!

I've ven reverse smart-alecked folks into saying "sorry" when they post their PRs. Ha!
