Today is one of the best lists of Listmas. Seriously. I mean, Cy’s list was hilarious and Willy T’s has opened our eyes to like 6 new places to fill our stomachs, but Shea at Local Honey might’ve won our hearts with this one. Shea runs the ship over at Local Honey [the best vintage & handmade threads shop around town] We don’t know how she does it, but she manages to get everything you’d ever want to wear and then sells it for cheap. Oh and then she houses tons of local designers’ best duds for you [She’s one of them. Shea has her own line called White Rabbit and we always fall for the girls wearing her custom made skirts. Seriously, ladies, if you wanna get the boys going ga-ga you NEED to pick up one of her threads] Oh and then she has parties and shows and they’re always awesome. Oh and she’s a total babe. We are such suckers for slang…
WORD PLAY has long been one of my favorite things. The day my best friend referred to major deja vu as “meja vu” and I described a messy sex act as a “jizzaster”… we unleashed a beast!
Lately, wordplay is at an all time high. Puns, phonetic mix-ups, obscure and hilariously combined words or hack jobs are everywhere…. Here’s a list of the most clever and infectious rhetorical excursions I heard this year.
Best slang of 2009:
SHEA STEELE [LOCAL HONEY]
male erection achieved as a result of another males hyper-masculinity and coolness. no homo.
to hit a bitch, beat that ass, put someone in check.
example= “Dude, Jon’s girlfriend is wack. He needs to Chris Brown that bitch.”
suck, fuck up, failure.
example= “I crashed my bike into a mail box last night. Fail.”
see you guys later.
looking busted, destroyed, fucked up.
example= ” I’m not going in there with you, girl, I look crunched.” or “Did you see David? That dude lookin crunched.”
100% correct, right on the money.
example= “yo is Local Honey the best place to buy clothes in Nashville? Yep, one hundo.”
your balls. thinking with your dick.
get wasted. especially after a period of being good.
FOR RIO DE JANEIRO–
for real yo. extreme agreement.
example= “Oh my god, that ho is seriously crazy. For rio de janeiro!”
the ultimate dis.
Osh-kosh-mygosh, Shea, so rad. You will definitely catch us saying these on the reg around town. Local Honey is located at 1207 Linden Ave off of 12th South. Spend all your holiday cash over there and look fresh for the new year.
