    Old Slang Phrases

    Was listening to High Plains Drifter the other night and heard the lyric "Outta the car longhair, " your goose is cooked"

    The meaning of "your goose is cooked" is nominally "you are in big trouble" but it can include "you caused yourself big trouble." It's somewhat similar in meaning to another expression: "you're a dead duck." "Your goose is cooked" came from the death of Jan Hus, a Czech priest in the early 14th century.

    What are some cool old phrases you've heard? I love using them!

    Heard this yesterday, thought about posting it in one hit wonders. Here's Rick playing it with the guy who first recorded it's brother (with Rick on guitar. Edit: Appears that Rick wrote the song as well):




    Laudy mama, light my fuse.

    Truck on out and spread the news.



    I think maybe I'll throw those out to some of my younger coworkers today.

    you can get a good look at a t-bone by sticking your head up a bull’s ass, but I’d rather take the butcher’s word for it

    I called the pretty, young lass across the cubical wall from me "lawdy mama" and requested that she "light my fuse".

    I frequently talk in old timey radio voice to my kids....especially in front of their friends. I often say "look here now...yeah...see" and "ol kinderhook"

    For some reason, they don't like it. <shrug>

    I also occasionally recite the line "Of shoes and ships and sealing wax
    Of cabbages and kings" from my second favorite poem. They also don't like that.

    EDIT: bc I’m a moron....see Sparty’s post.

    You forgot about the amphetamines!

    My mom's family always referred to "soda" as "sody". I guess that is a thing of the past, even when I was growing up, but by George when we had lunch at the farm we had a sody pop.

    "Agitate the gravel"

    It means to leave, usually in a hurry. That one works well for bikes too!

    I think I'm gonna agitate some gravel tomorrow!

    "Well take my birthday"
    An older chap I was working with today used that phrase a few times. Never heard it before and I asked him what it meant. I can only assume it's not good.

    I grew up in the 80's so here's a few:
    1. Face! (you lose, or something close to that)
    2 Gotta book... (time to leave)
    The only important thing these days, is rhythm and melody. Rhythm...and melody.

    Well, sh#t-the-bed. I have been working on reviving more words and phrases that you can shake-a-stick-at. Most are honky-dory.
    One question- whats the difference between Zoinks and Yikes?
    And after calming me down with some orange slices and fetal spooning, ET revealed to me my singular purpose.

    I think that may be bigger than a shebang.

    I still use the word "tuff" to describe things that are good looking:

    "that girl is tuff"

    "that 68 Camaro is tuff"

    "that is a tuff looking drum set"

    tuff was a thing I heard the older kids - my friends older brothers - in the hood in the 70's say...it was a hesher term...

    please don't bring back: NOT!!!! - from the early 90's....that was a term that the NYHC/thrash metal scene started in the early 80's, and was cool then, but somehow drifted to the mainstream/soccer mom culture in the 90's and got flogged to death...i don't know how

    dad's best ones were:

    "Cut out the horseplay"
    "Give him a knuckle sandwich"
    " Cruisin for a bruisin"
    " Mind your P's and Q's buddy"

    I still use these sometimes at school much to the delight and confusion of the kids

    I'm kinda glad people don't just substitute the word "gay" for "lame" anymore. Like when I was in school it was like "I can't believe we have homework, this is gay".

    ^ I have mixed feelings on that one. On some level when derogatory words go mainstream it helps to remove intention. This seems to mirror marginalized groups gain more acceptance.

    Never heard these until used in TV shows but they caught on a little:

    "Sit on it! (Potsy)"

    "Kiss my grits!"

    I have a memory of Gomer Pyle saying "Far out!". In his country twang, but that had to be on Gomer Pyle, USMC? Or maybe as a guest on Laugh In?

    #2 was back into the 70’s or further back. I remember it dropping off as popular before the 80’s. Where did you grow up? Kind of an east coast term. It was popular in NY but then when I moved to the west in 1976 nobody said it.

    Wild goose chase
    Dead as a doornail
    For goodness sake
    Wear your heart on your sleeve
    Bated breath
    Break the ice
    Knock knock, who's there
    Good riddance
    Send him packing
    Full circle
    So so
    A sorry sight
    Butt plug

    probably true....I was not much into WW back then...didn't really think it was funny. It was like people who don't really know much about the scene that they were spoofing, spoofing it.

    Considering how long The Simpsons has been on the air… is "D'OH!" considered old slang?

    Gomer's phrase was always "Golly" all drawn out in his heavy southern drawl. "Well Gawwwww-leee Sergeant Carter!" He even did it on his many appearances on the Andy Griffith Show.

    "Far Out" was John Denver's thing and he made it big when he started doing all the TV appearances and began acting in addition to his music career.

    "I haven't seen you in a month of Sundays".

    "That dog don't hunt"

    Using "betwixt" rather than "between" as in "betwixt a rock and a hard place"
    Change begins by doing something different.

    "Those guys are fags", and "Those guys suck" were acceptable in the 80s said by pre teen kids but adults are very sensitive these days.

    How could i confuse John Denver with Gomer Pyle? Well, maybe they were both a bit out there?
