Jeff,
I would like to take this opportunity to publicly say I'm sorry for "stealing" your "Old Bean" phrase will now and forever refer to you as "Sport."

I'm always having that problem (people stealing my calls)

I mean, sure, I probably stole them off someone else, but if I re-coin them then they become mine ;D

"Right on!" and "Keen!" are ones I stole off The Tick for example...

on the subject of calling people old bean... my boss always calls me "Joshua old boy", and he talks with a lisp  :-/

What is an "Old Bean" exactly? Is it referring to ones head? or the seed variety? or Rowan Atkinson?

My minds eye takes me to cold and shriveled edamame lying on an ochre colored ceramic dish at a mid-range sushi bar as I wait for the main course to arrive.

In any case, I like the term.

You must live in L.A.   ;)

I do use "Old Boy," and will continue to try and refrain from using "Old Bean."  I will also seek out and destroy this "Flerk1" person. ;D

Good to have you on board Wushu Boy!

I'm going through this phase at the moment of calling most girls I know "dear"  :P

It sounds very Basil Faulty with my strong accent, so it is really patronising hehe  8)

Haha! I always use that one...

I've also taken up using Nadsat sometimes (Nadsat is from A Clockwork Orange)

"Come and get one in the yarbles, if you have any yarbles"

"Blockkos to it then"

"Slag off"

Words like "Cod" and "Fancy" also frequently spill from my mouth...

I suppose Im the one who brings stero types upon myself  ::)

Well-Done sez: One of the ugly truths about most sterotypes is that there wouldn't BE that sterotype if there were not really people like that -somewhere-....

Yarbles....heh.heh.heh....I like that one.
I say 'Ghoulies' myself.

"Blockkos to it then"


I really like the sound of that one. Roughly translates how?

I tend to use old '40s slang a lot. "Everything's jake with me," for instance.

Nadsat is the language spoken by Alex and his droogs
in the novel  A Clockwork Orange.  A doctor in the
book explains it: "Odd bits of old rhyming slang," he
says.  "A bit of gipsy talk, too.  But most of the roots
are Slav. Propaganda.  Subliminal penetration."

The actual quote is from a scene as follows:

Alex - (Voice Over) "There was some sophistos from the T.V. Studios around the corner. Laughing an govoreeting the Devotchka was smecking away and not caring about the wicked world one bit. Then the disk on the stereo twanged off and out and in the short silence before the next one came on she suddenly came with a burst of singing. And it was like for a moment, O my brothers, some great bird had flown into the milk bar and I felt all the malenky little hairs on my plott standing endwise and the shivers crawling up like slow malenky lizards and then down again. Because I knew what she sang. It was a bit from the glorious 9th, by Ludwig Van"

*Dim makes a rude sound with his mouth, Alex quickly clubs Dim across the leg with his cane*

Dim - (In pain) "What did you do that for?"

Alex - "For being a bastard with no manners. Without a dook of an idea about how to comport yourself public-wise, O my brother"

Dim - "I don't like you should do what you done and I'm not your brother no more and wouldn't want to be"

Alex - "Watch that. Do watch that O Dim, if to continue to be on live thou dost wish"

Dim - "Yarbles, Great Bolshy Yarblockos to you. I'll meet you with chain, or nudge, or britva, any time, I'm not have you aiming tolchoks at me reasonless. It stands to reason, I won't have it"

Alex - "And I'll scrap any time you say"

Dim - "Right, right. Doobidoob. A bit tired may be best not to say more. Bedways is rigthways now, so best we go homeways and get a bit of spatchka. Right, right"

I used the Nadsat Translator to convert the scene into English... and it is as follows:

Alex - (Voice over) There was some sophistos from the T.V. Studios around the corner. Laughing a speaking the Girl was laughing away and not caring about the wicked world one bit. Then the disk on the stereo twanged off and out and in the short silence before the next one came on she suddenly came with a burst of singing. And it was like for a moment, O my brothers, some great bird had flown into the milk bar and I felt all the little little hairs on my body standing endwise and the shivers crawling up like slow little lizards and then down again. Because I knew what she sang. It was a bit from the glorious 9th, by Ludwig Van

*Dim makes a rude sound with his mouth, Alex quickly clubs Dim across the leg with his cane*

Dim - (In pain) "What did you do that for?"

Alex - "For being a bastard with no manners. Without a ghost of an idea about how to comport yourself public-wise, O my brother"

Dim - "I don't like you should do what you done and I'm not your brother no more and wouldn't want to be"

Alex - "Watch that. Do watch that O Dim, if to continue to be on live thou dost wish"

Dim - "Testicles, Great Great Yarblockos to you. I'll meet you with chain, or nudge, or razor, any time, I'm not have you aiming tolchoks at me reasonless. It stands to reason, I won't have it"

Alex - "And I'll scrap any time you say"

Dim - "Right, right. Doobidoob. A bit tired may be best not to say more. Bedways is rigthways now, so best we go homeways and get a bit of spatchka. Right, right"

So, as you can see... Yarblockos is probably Nadsat for something rather crude hehe

Sorry for the long post, but it really intrests me hehehe ;D

I also like Newspeak from Orwell's 1984. It is brilliant in its understanding.

Run your glazzies on nadsat, my fine young devotchka wanna bes. ;)

Nadsat also has a fair anount of Russian.

and Newspeak is what we call media contolled monoliths of societal controllers - like AoHell Timid Warner and Rupey's Fox.

Adventures with Wonder Woman
Superstars, Scoop, Friday, June 21, 2002

        
       
Flight risk or Superheroine?
The following exchange actually took place Saturday, June 8, 2002, between airport security employees at the West Palm Beach airport and comic book collector Michael Solof, who happened to be carrying one of DC Direct's Wonder Woman maquettes (see Catch the Wave) in his carry-on bag. When the bag went through the x-ray scanner, the shape of the figure caught the eye of the security team. This is the exchange that followed:
Security Agent: Excuse me, sir, what's that in your bag? An award?
Solof: No, It's Wonder Woman.
Security Agent: Wonder Woman, sir?
Solof: Yeah, Wonder Woman. You know, buddy of Batman, member of the Justice League. Wonder Woman.
Security Agent: Righhhtttt . . . sir, can you produce Wonder Woman for me?
Solof: Produce her? I'd love to produce her! I'd probably make millions!
Security Agent: Excuse me, sir???
Solof: Nothing.
Security Agent: Please step over here to the side sir and open your bag. I have to see Wonder Woman before you pass.
(The Security Agent calls over to a very large man with a very large gun.)
Security Agent: Sergeant? Can you please come over here and check this man's bag for Wonder Woman?
Sergeant: Excuse me?
Security Agent: Sergeant, please look for Wonder Woman in this man's bag.
Sergeant: Wonder Woman?
Security Agent: Yes, Wonder Woman. You know, buddy of Batman.
Sergeant: OK. Sir, please remove Wonder Woman from your bag.
(At this point, Solof pulls the box out of his bag and then removes the figure from its box)
Sergeant: Yup. That's Wonder Woman all right. Uh, hey, Bob? You got any problems
lettin' Wonder Woman on the plane? Maybe we can stuff her in the baggage
compartment?
Solof: Well, truthfully, I'd kinda like to keep her with me.
Sergeant: Well, OK, sir. Put her back in the box, but keep her handy in case we have to search her again.
Michael A. Solof, who swears he was never seen again, contributed this story.

Much the same way one addresses a golf ball before hitting it 250 yds.
