Get Your Slang On

I thought we could do something fun and look at some of the words out of the Urban Dictionary. It might just help your conversations go to a HNL baby!

That's how I roll
What someone would say to insinuate that it was their style, or that it was the way they usually do things.
Yo man so did you already hit it or what?

self helpless
The condition of somebody that is unable to deal with life, usually found sitting around a neglected apartment with bad hair and bad outfit.
I saw Kenny at our high school reunion, he's still living with his parents and saving up for a camaro ...totally self helpless.

A cell phone which copies the look and features of an iPhone.
I heard that Samsung is coming out with an iPhoney this summer.

Intentionally posing in other people's photos, for a later surprise.
Usually people making funny faces in the background, without the knowledge of the main subjects of the photo.
Jim is always photobombing, he messed ups some of the best photos from the wedding.

27 seconds a day, 4 days a week, i.e. quite rare
Kev: Hey Boss, I work 27/4 for you.

hulk out
To become enraged; to lose one's temper, clothing and power of coherent speech before embarking on a spree of violence and wanton destruction. After the comicbook character who turned from an unregarded geek into a thundering green mass of unstoppable fury.
"It all happened so fast... the Broncos ran in their fifth touchdown and he just Hulked out. I hope he's going to pay for a new TV. And window."

Word Vomit
A point in a conversation where you say something that you really didn't mean to.
I told Robin that I saw Mike with some girl at the movie theater last night. It just came out of my mouth like Word Vomit.

cash pedal
The accelerator pedal in your car during times of high gasoline prices. So named because it's prodigious use will lead to more cash spent on gas.
You wouldn't be putting $100 a week in that thing if you would just be a little smoother on the cash pedal.

attention spam
A condition resulting in a failure to process basic facts or comprehend common knowledge, due largely to having a mind full of useless information.
Kali's numerous typos were a result of her suffering from attention spam.
