I absolutely love slang! It’s fun, and each era has it’s own sound. Slang differs from region, country, and decade. I actually collect slang while I’m reading or watching something.

And how! Bum’s rush – being tossed out Come clean – tell the truth Have kittens – throw a fit High hat – snob Hooey – baloney Hotdog! – Oh, boy! Go chase yourself – scram Fella For crying out loud Kisser – mouth Level with me – be honest Nifty Sad Sack – depressed Scram A scream – hilarious Sore – angry Swell What’s eating you? You said it!
