Do you ever wonder where all these slang/terms started? I was thinking earlier about terms like hanky panky meaning messing around or How thongs meant flip flops and G-string meant thong and so on...

I was also remembering terms we used back when I was a teen like when you got made a fool of you were "MODED"! Now kids say You Got Owned! They say Sweet, Nasty, that is so tight! We used to say that is cool! Bad! I noticed us moms still say gross but now the kids say nasty. Remember Valley girl talk? Like, gag me with a spoon!

  • I also wonder about that saying "I like the cut of your Jif? or is it Giff? IDk but I have heard it all my life. It means they like your way of thinking but where the hell did that come from?
