It goes like this, the fourth, the fifth, the minor fall, the major lift, the baffled king composing

1. public house
2. a partidge in a pear tree, 2 turtle doves, 3 french hens, 4 calling birds, 6 geese a-laying, 7 swans a-swimming
3. usa, england, china, russia, france
4. eyes wide shut
5. farfalle - and im gonna have to give credit to davide and atl-kt, i really didnt think anyone would know this. bravo. bravo.

so it's almost been a months since my last post. man, im lazy . it's the summer i tell you. so i have many stories of boozed filled nights, girls that taste like ashtrays, and trips to mexico to see a woman and a horse. but those are for another lifetime. what i will dazzle yall with right now is my new slang words i've picked up from my co-workers. i've befriended a young teenager from the bronx and have been introduced to his small circle of friends at work. now, this guy is smart and funny, but when he's around his friends his language shifts to include words that are in his vernacular, but not my own. i'm pretty sure he doesnt use these words around me cause he doesnt want to confuse me, and i appreciate that. so after a while i've started to pick up on the meaning of some of these new words, and i present them to you, to expand your knowledge base, to better communicate with urban youths. and to impress any teenagers around (well, the cool ones anyway)

now, you un-hip folks out there might think that the word "tight" in "ghetto" slang means awesome, like "dat superman movie was tight, yo." but it, in fact, does not mean awesome. it means anxious/fustrated/nervous/tense/some-word-in-between-the-rest-of-these. such as "i was out wid mah girl, and my ex shows up and got me all tight and shit". this word took me the longest to figure out because it was thrown around so loosely, but i think this was as close to a definition as i could get.

now other words were easier to understand from context clues and common sense, like dolo. "dolo" pronounced doe-low. meaning, without girlfriend/boyfriend. "so, baby, are you dolo or what?" also the word "slay", which means to reject (as in a social or intimate situation). "after dat nigga bought her 3 drink, she slayed him and took off with his homie"

now your assignment is to teach these words to your friends, so they too can be as cool as you. but remember, with great power, comes great responsibility. only teach the "right" people these words or these sayings will go to the land of "the totally unhip". where words like "bling" and "fo shizzle" have gone.

You're giving all these poor people "city words" to make them cool, but let me ask you this: are there any words that can make YOU cool? I think not.

jinx protocol said...

Why don't you ever update your blog? You're all by yourself in New York. It seems like you'd have nothing better to do, but how are ya anyway?

For everyone else who wants a trivia fix, visit for some pretty tough questions.
