Cool Beans!
#1
UNDER THE STREET - "Saturday in the park, I think it was ... " the weekend before the Christmas holiday weekend.
asked under the cat's pajamas

The MSN main page had this clickbait about 20th century slang, that's s'posedly out of fashion.  Be advised it's a 101-slide click-thru slideshow, so whatever.  The UTS clicked through it, though, noted some samples, and also noted not all of this stuff is obsolete, at least in the UTS' geezerly opinion.  They're listed below:


Daddy-O

* * *
made in the shade

* * *
pad - as in 'let's go back to your pad.'

* * *
ankle-biter

* * *
wig chop - as in 'haircut.'  had never heard that one before.

* * *
beat feet

* * *
cruisin' for a bruisin'

* * *
classy chassis - as in a good looking woman has a nice body (some o' these might get a fella Franken-ed these days)

* * *
word from the bird - as in 'That's the honest truth.'

* * *
wet rag - as in 'stick-in-the-mud'

* * *
knuckle sandwich

* * *
cat - as in What is that cat up to now?'  Ronaldo likes that one.  So does RC.

* * *
far out  - as in 'groovy'

* * *
bummer - as in 99% of the posts by ... oh, never mind.

* * *
foxy

* * *
lay it on me

* * *
bounce - as in 'It's time to leave.  Let's bounce.'

* * *
foam domes -  had never heard this one.  when young girls would stuff their bras with tissue to appear more endowed, they were said to be wearing foam domes.

* * *
cool beans - as in 'spiffy!'

* * *
kick him to the curb

* * *
aiight

* * *
can you dig it - (we knew that you could)

* * *
freak flag - as in 'get crazy, let it all hang out & fly your freak flag.'

* * *
Do y'all still use any of these terms?  The UTS sure does.

Right on. I'm gonna boogie on outta here. Can you dig it?

I gotta admit that I still use the term boogie. It's slang for split -which I also still use.

I’ve been known to say “full-tilt boogie”.
