Does your family (or maybe your close group of friends) use any words or phrases that are unique to them?

For example, my grandfather was from Sicily.  He pronounced "pasta" with a strong "p" sound . . . almost a "b" sound.  So, it sounded like "basta" when he said it.  He died about 30 years ago, but my family still says "basta" when we are talking about spaghetti.  When I was about 6 years old, my friend's mother asked me what I was having for dinner.  I kept saying "basta" and she kept saying "what?"  Finally, she had to call my mother and ask what the hell I was saying.

Somewhere along the way, the phrase "kiss my roseola" replaced "kiss my ass" in my family's lingo.  I don't know the origin of this odd phrase.

I'm sure we have more like this, but I need to think of them.

There is a few. Some are not acceptable for putting on the board however. Here are some which should be safe since they contain no offensvie words.
Molestery - a way to describe someone or something that looks or seem like something used by a person who molest someone sexually. Often used by friends of mine.
PUMAT - Product of an Unspeakable Menage A Trois. We use this often when we see a pic or film of someone who looks like a mixture of three other people. Often used by friends of mine.
UMAT - Unspeakable Menage A Trois. We use this one when we see three other people looking like they are about to make out together or just standing really close. Often used by friends of mine.
Butt ass - My family uses this do describe extremes regarding nudity or cold mostly. We have tossed it in for other things to point out we think it's extreme.
Dingus - It's a old word that I have heard my entire life used by my family to describe someone being a bonehead.
Drawers - First this is not always something you store silverware or papers in. My family uses this to also refer to underwear/underpants. Guess you could store stuff like that in them as well but would you want to really used them afterwards?

My Dad likes to use "Frazzlin'" as an adjective when he is irritated . . .
and I use the word "nostrils" as an all-purpose exclamation of surprise, dismay, or enthusiasm.

I call my Seventh Graders "yuppy larva".

And when I am really angry, I will rattle off the following phrase in Latin:

"Sugit facientor vomitas!"

(Roughly translated, "That sucks and it makes me want to throw up!")

Not too unique, but if anyone in my family can't think of something (except for me) they'll say thingamajig.

Boompeyay (Boom-Pee-Yay) = A butt, "boomp" for short. 

BingBong = Belly button

Toothpickpoop = Me.  Yes, most fathers lovingly call their daughters pumpkin, darling, sweetie, and I got deemed "Toothpickpoop" by my dad.


Dingbat - an incredibly stupid person


My brother always called his girlfriends Dingbat, and it had the same meaning.

Once my dad was trying to say glance and glimpse at the same time and it came out as glampse. Since then whenever we get a brief look at something, we refer to it as a glampse.

The FDA has been looking for a generic name for Viagra. After careful consideration by a team of government experts, it recently announced that it has settled on the generic name of Mycoxafloppin. Also considered were Mycoxafailin, Mydixadrupin, Mydixarizin, Dixafix, and of course, Ibepokin.

My father was always good at putting a string of swears together and getting them out in less than a second.

"God@mnmuthaf*ckinsonofab*tch"

He'd also have his own dialect when he was PO'd.  Almost like an incoherent growl mixed with some English word that we could never figure out.  It usually shut up whoever he was yelling at.  I couldn't even try to type an example here if I tried.  

When I was a toddler my mother call my bowel movements "ca-ca balls".  I'm starting to realized now why I'm a tad bit odd.

Instead of using swear words in front of impressionable young minds I came up with "HWEEG!" and "YARGOSNEEB!" when utterly frustrated.  What do they mean?  Even though I made 'em up, I have no idea.  Question

My youngest daughter and I use to do one thing that got to my wife. We use to speak Klingon to each other at times. Would drive my wife nuts when we did it too.

"No One Gets Yog-Sothoth" -- I ran a six month long Call of Cthulhu RPG campaign in college.  One of my players started dreaming about the game between sessions.  This phrase popped up in his dreams. 

"Horsepants" -- an expression of both cynical disbelief and occasionally used just when silence becomes too much.  Coined by my friend Dan.

My most recent ex-gf and I would fill any awkward silence with one of us saying, "So, ah...Manos, the...Hands of Fate..."

I just heard one to add to this list.  My dad will say something like "It's not Rocket Surgery", when referring to something that isn't difficult.

I hear "Its Not Rocekt Science".  Currently I'm using it as a central theme of an upcoming essay on the blog.

BounceGiggle Saucer that is beautiful!  (She sounds like 'a keeper': None of my business but what did she do for you to let her get away: eat crackers in bed? )

Ours:

"Seaweed!" - used in place of "42" as the answer.
"Because I am KING!" - added as (unsolicited) explanation as to why one knows a certain fact/thing one has stated.

(Both of which are from the same scene in the same bad movie.  Wink  )

"Don't squat with yer spurs on" - equivalent to 'be careful' - or offered up when someone does something clumsy, regrettable and avoidable.

"glarbargle!"  as a random exclamation out-of-the blue injected into pauses or silences (usually in game play)

"Because she is a blind, disabled, undead monkey" said with an over-done phony French accent, whenever someone says something very odd.  Sometimes add "bipolar" before 'undead', for emphasis.

(I know there are more, but I am going blank...I'll have to ask the kids.)

pigstee instead of pigsty.. I was letting my husband read a book I was reading it said something like they would make love in a pigsty and he read it as make love in a pigstee and it just stuck.

When anyone falls down we all ask.. are you drunk?

When anyone has a problem inevitably someone will say.. you want me to send the wolf?
