FUCKING PREACH TO ME, LET THESE [WHITE] FOLKS KNOW WHERE THEY ‘SLANG’ CAME FROM!!!!!

I’m actually writing a research paper on this

Let me know how it goes bro I really wouldn’t mind reading it hishighnessjt

Calling each other “man” originated in the Harlem Renaissance when black musicians, tired of white men always calling them “boy” started calling each OTHER “man”.

As in: “Hey, man, how you doin’?”

Of course, our modern stereotype for the person who says “man” a lot is a white hippie with long hair or a white beatnik in a turtleneck and beret–a look (and movement) that white people stole wholecloth from black people.

“Cool” is another slang word black people created, but I don’t recall the date this one was coined, only that it was always in another phrase that has since been dropped–“cool cat”, as in, a man who is always level-headed, and very suave. ‘Cool’ has since come to be a stand-in word for an aesthetic or overarching style with ephemeral, impossible-to-overtly-state qualities of allure and fascination. Yes, we invented that, too. We invented that word. We gave a definition to the inexplicable sensation of awe some people are able to inspire in others by sheer style.

Unfortunately the word “cool” has also been stolen and our stereotype of a person who uses it a lot is a white boy with a skateboard or surfboard…

I met a couple Australians this weekend and they introduced me to what is possibly the greatest phrase in the English language. Apparently, a common response to a wide variety of questions is “I’m not here to fuck spiders”. It means “I’m already doing that” or “Obviously, yeah”. So like, example usage:

At the bar with a friend.
Friend: do you want to get a beer?
Me: well, I’m not here to fuck spiders.

ive literally never heard someone say that what fuckin australians did you meet

I'm Chinese, so I wonder if non-Chinese understand
that in the Chinese version of Disney’s Mulan, the fake name she gives is “Ping”, but her family name “Fa” in English is “Hua” in Chinese, therefore her full name is “Hua Ping”, which is literally “Flower Vase”, and that’s why Shang is so bewildered because it’s a silly name.

but OP how could you not tell them the best part

“hua ping”/flower vase is chinese slang for “camp gay”

thinking up theories how "inda payah" translates to "nggak usah" when "susah" means "payah"

the former pair of words means "don't bother" and the latter means "difficult/hard" btw

I’M SO ANGRY

SOME 16TH CENTURY ASSHOLE WROTE “GOD B W YE” IN A LETTER AS AN ABBREVIATION FOR “GOD BE WITH YE”

AND IT APPEARED AS “GODBWYE”

WHICH WAS THEN READ AS “GOODBYE”

AND THAT’S WHY WE SAY “GOODBYE”

BECAUSE OF 16TH CENTURY CHAT SPEAK

I hope there’s proof to back this up because that’s hysterical

as the proud holder of an english degree i can confirm this as fact.

why do people say “don’t be a pussy” when talking about weakness more like “don’t be a man’s ego” because you know there isn’t nothing more fragile than that

uh 

because “pussy” is the shortened form of the word “pusillanimous”, which means “timid, cowardly”

and not the slang word for the female genital region?

literally no one else knows this. nobody. 

I just googled that word because I was like “no way is that a fucking word”. I was so wrong…

From A Series of Unfortunate Events DVD commentary track.

if you haven’t watched this film with the commentary then you are missing out, it’s hilarious. “Lemony Snicket” was completely unhappy with the film and wanted no real part of it and so in the commentary he just fucks about. Seriously, at one point he gets out an accordion and drowns out the director with his playing
