Origins of 10 Popular and Played Out Slang Terms

Slang is something that is constantly changing and evolving, and even the word itself is one with a mysterious origin. Slang differs all over the world, even in different regions in the same country, and different age groups use different slang terms. In this list, you’ll read about where ten popular slang terms got their start. Five of them are pretty old, and then five of them are ones that have only recently popped up on Urban Dictionary. Nitty-Gritty Getting down to the nitty-gritty is what someone says when they want to get to the point and discuss the smaller and finer details about a particular topic. While there is no specific period or person associated with the origin of this phrase, there is a reason why people say this. Nits are the eggs of lice which are very small, and you’re probably familiar with the ground hominy breakfast food, grits. Because these are both extremely small, that is why people say nitty-gritty. Buck While this term for money is often erroneously attributed to slavery, that’s not the case. Saying buck instead of dollar traces back to the 1700’s when deerskin was a conventional means of exchange. Conrad Weiser, who was a Dutch pioneer that worked as an interpreter and diplomat between the Pennsylvania Colony and the Native Americans first mentioned this in his journal. Of course, we don’t trade in deerskin anymore, but the term stuck and has adapted to our means of exchange now, the dollar. To Deck Someone To deck someone is to punch them very hard, and it is something that many people still say all the time. It has always meant the same thing, and people have been saying it since the 1950’s. At the time, to deck someone meant to hit them hard enough that they would pass out, or hit the deck (which is the platform of a ship). This is related to the saying of ‘hit the deck’ meaning to get to work and is most often attributed to sailors, who originally popularized the saying. Cut To The Chase Cut to the chase is something you would say when you want someone to get to the point of their story, or just tell the truth rather than beating around the bush. The saying started in the 1920’s and is attributed to filmmaking as most movies set up long or romantic stories before getting to ‘the chase scene’ or climax of the film, which is what is considered the most exciting or best part. Birds And The Bees This term has no clear origin, which is interesting for any aspect of language because most of the time, people can pinpoint where something started. The birds and the bees is a conservative way to refer to sex or the infamous ‘sex talk.’ One of the earliest instances of the use of this idiom was a 1640 poem by Thomas Carew, where he relates sensuality to nature. The birds and the bees were often used to refer to nature in [...] The post Origins of 10 Popular and Played Out Slang Terms appeared first on PopCrunch......»»

According to the Spartanburg Police Department, the employee grew angry over having to work the morning shift. Related: This Taco Bell & Forever 21 Clothing Line Is Fire! After the employee got into multiple verbal disputes with other coworkers, the supervisor said she told him to "stop being a crybaby" -- that's when he erupted with the heat of 1,000 Lava sauce packets. (Srsly tho, can TB please bring those back?) In a fit of rage, the employee reportedly threw a hot burrito at his boss and smashed his headset over his knee. He then threw the headset to the floor, breaking it into several pieces, before storming out of the restaurant. The supervisor was left with melted cheese down her left arm and leg. No arrests have been made so far, but warrants in the case will be pursued, according to the police report. [Image via Taco Bell.].....»»

Ava DuVernay"s A Wrinkle In Time Is A Beautiful, Intergalactic Mess! See The MIXED Reviews!

There's no doubt that A Wrinkle In Time is historic as director Ava DuVernay is the first black woman to direct a film with a budget of over $100 million. That said, is the Disney space odyssey any good? Most critics say "yes," if you take the blockbuster for what it is: a bright, beautiful children's movie [...] There's no doubt that A Wrinkle In Time is historic as director Ava DuVernay is the first black woman to direct a film with a budget of over $100 million. That said, is the Disney space odyssey any good? Most critics say "yes," if you take the blockbuster for what it is: a bright, beautiful children's movie that (for the most part) captured the magic of its source material. Photos: Mindy Kaling, Oprah, & Reese Witherspoon Hit A Wrinkle In Time's Premiere While every critic applauded DuVernay's colorful world -- including the colorblind casting of lead actresses Storm Reid, Oprah Winfrey, and Mindy Kaling -- they also agreed that the film is flawed. Most reviewers felt that the plot was uneven, over-explained, and tonally in multiple galaxies at once. One critic even went as far to say the film felt more like a New Age self help book than an adaptation of Madeleine L'Engle's beloved sci-fi novel. Snap! See the reviews -- which ranged from "not so bad" to "not so good" -- below! The Not-So-Bad: Angie Han, Mashable: "A Wrinkle in Time is for all the girls – and boys, and non-binary kids, and teens and adults and the elderly – who've ever been a Meg. It's a flawed film that entreats us to love flawed things, up to and including our very own selves. Maybe that sounds like a hoary cliché now. It didn't feel like one when I was watching the movie, which is so disarming[ly] earnest that I fell completely under its spell." A.O. Scott, The New York Times: "This is, unapologetically, a children's movie, by turns gentle, thrilling and didactic, but missing the extra dimension of terror and wonder that would have transcended the genre. Thankfully, though, Ms. DuVernay has dispensed with the winking and cutesiness that are Hollywood's preferred ways of pandering and condescending to grown-ups." Kevin Fallon, The Daily Beast: "It's the rare live-action family film to feel like a bonafide kids' movie, with all the trappings of a screenplay catered to that demographic — albeit one that can at times feel on-the-nose, or more didactic than wondrous. It's a film with lots of Disney-sparkled bells and whistles. It's also a film that is so pure, to the extent it's almost jarring to take in given all that's going on in the world and how jaded we've allowed entertainment to become. The Not-So-Good: Scott Mendelson, Fobes: "Its splashy cast all seem to be acting in slightly different movies, with few of them (among the children and adults) hitting the right tone for the admittedly challenging source material. Even with strong imagery and its value beyond profits or IP extension, it barely holds together as a stand-alone 109-minute feature." Darren Franich, Entertainment Weekly: "You feel some hesitation in the storytelling here. The three Mrs. W's overexplain every wonder with PowerPoint precision. Anything they don't explain gets covered by Pine, trapped in a series of horrid flashbacks, including one where he delivers an actual PowerPoint lecture about the film's psycho-spiritual cosmology." Todd McCarthy, The Hollywood Reporter: "Only the faintest glimmers of genuine, earned emotion pierce through the layers of intense calculation that encumber Ava DuVernay's A Wrinkle in Time... All the same, DuVernay's first big-budget studio studio extravaganza after breaking through with Selma and the great documentary 13th feels cobbled together with many diverse parts rather that coalesced into an engaging whole. Even if this is widely consumed by the target audience, it doesn't charm or disarm." Peter Bebruge, Variety: "Despite such bold choices as casting Oprah Winfrey as an all-wise celestial being and rejecting the antiquated assumption that the lead characters ought to be white, A Wrinkle in Time is wildly uneven, weirdly suspenseless, and tonally all over the place, relying on wall-to-wall music to supply the missing emotional connection and trowel over huge plot holes." Justin Chang, Los Angeles Times: "Whisked alongside the characters through one space-time wormhole after another, I found myself wishing that this Wrinkle were more focused, more disciplined — that its ceaseless flow of fantastical images cohered into a revelatory new application of L'Engle's themes and insights, rather than an earnest, sometimes awkward reiteration of them. Matt Singer, ScreenCrush: "One scene bleeds into the next with little flow or tension; the kids are told they can't jump (or ‘tesser') to a specific location and then they immediately do it anyway; characters go missing and then return without explanation. And the whole time Calvin, Charles Wallace, and Mrs. Which constantly pepper Meg with compliments, reminding her that she is talented and brilliant and beautiful... They're not wrong, and as a young woman of color, [Storm Reid]'s Meg is a refreshingly unusual protagonist for a studio blockbuster. Still, the affirmations are so heavy and so persistent (‘Love is the frequency!') that it sometimes feels like A Wrinkle in Time is adapted from a New Age self-help book instead of a classic science-fiction novel." A Wrinkle in Time blasts into theaters Friday. [Image via Disney.].....»»

Rainforest Cafe Waiter Fired After Telling "Cheap" Hurricane Evacuees To "Drown" & "Die Slow"

Sadly, that wasn't the case for one cranky Rainforest Cafe employee who was fired after saying evacuees from Hurricane Harvey-stricken areas should "drown." Related: Houston Man Killed In Floodwaters While Checking On Sister's Cat A waiter from the San Antonio, Texas restaurant was given the boot after penning a Facebook rant in which he complained about "cheap evacuees" allegedly asking for discounts and then not tipping him. In a message posted to the San Antonio Craigslist Facebook page (srsly, was he trying to get fired?), he wrote: "Man fuck all you cheap evacuees, don't come eat at my restaurant and ask for a discount and then not tip me!!!! Fuck each and every one of y'all go back to Houston, Galveston, and Corpus, and fucking drown!!! Idgaf this is how I get paid if you not gonna pay me for your good service then die slow Bitches you and your family!!! Idgaf!!!" Good thing he didn't "gaf," because the post sparked outrage in the local online community and prompted many to ask Rainforest Cafe for his termination. Related: Aspiring Pastor Allegedly Stabs Wife To Death In His Sleep The user deleted his message, but it was too late. Keith Beitler, an exec for the Rainforest Cafe's parent company confirmed that the waiter was no longer employed by the company. He said in an email to mySA: "It was brought to our attention that an employee of Rainforest Cafe in San Antonio shared personal comments on a private group Facebook page. This is not reflective of our company's views and this employee is no longer employed with us. Our hearts go out to all those affected by Hurricane Harvey's devastation." Just like in the rainforest, there's a bit of Darwinism in living out your day-to-day on Facebook: the dumbest animals always get themselves fucked! [Image via Rainforest Cafe.].....»»

Southwest Airlines Apologizes To Mom Who Was Asked To Prove The Biracial Baby She Was Boarding With Was Hers!

Is this insensitive or just insuring the safety of a child? Twitter seems to be divided after Southwest Airlines apologized for an employee asking a mother to prove her biracial son belonged to her before boarding a flight. University of California Berkeley women's basketball coach Lindsay Gottlieb fired shots at the company on the social media site [...] Is this insensitive or just insuring the safety of a child? Twitter seems to be divided after Southwest Airlines apologized for an employee asking a mother to prove her biracial son belonged to her before boarding a flight. University of California Berkeley women's basketball coach Lindsay Gottlieb fired shots at the company on the social media site Monday following the experience she called "demeaning and insensitive." Related: Sichuan Airlines Co-Pilot Sucked Out Cockpit Window! Gottlieb explained that although she had her child's passport, the gate agent still needed proof she was the 1-year-old's mother, since they did not share the same last name. After asking for a birth certificate Gottlieb did not have on her, the employee asked to see a Facebook post of the mother and child as proof of their relationship before allowing them to board a flight from Denver to Oakland, California. To add insult to precaution, another mother on the plane whose baby has a different last name told the coach that she'd never been asked to prove her baby was hers. Gottlieb said this mother, unsurprisingly, was of "not mixed race fam," explaining: @SouthwestAir she 1st asked for proof with birth certificate. She then said it’s a "federal law" (not true) but asked me to prove I’m mother with Facebook post.What??Mother next to me said she’s never been asked for proof despite diff last name..not shockingly, not mixed face fam — Lindsay Gottlieb (@CalCoachG) May 28, 2018 @SouthwestAir it was demeaning and insensitive, not to mention inefficient. Would have missed flight if it was not delayed. I would advise better training for employees to avoid this happening to others — Lindsay Gottlieb (@CalCoachG) May 28, 2018 @SouthwestAir I’m appalled that after approx 50 times flying with my 1 year old son, ticket counter personnel told me I had to "prove" that he was my son, despite having his passport. She said because we have different last name. My guess is because he has a different skin color. — Lindsay Gottlieb (@CalCoachG) May 28, 2018 The coach's fiancé, Patrick Martin, who is black, was also traveling with them, according to the Associated Press. The airline issued an apology to the family over the employee's actions, saying in a statement: "We have reached out to Ms. Gottlieb directly to address her concerns and will utilize the situation as a coaching opportunity for our Employee. We apologize if our interaction made this family uncomfortable — that is never our intention." The reactions were sympathetic to both sides, with many expressing support for the mother and Southwest agent. Chrissy Teigen even weighed in on the drama, noting she has had similar experiences when traveling with baby Luna: airlines have asked this of me, too, with my daughter. once I learned it's a precaution for the very real threat of child trafficking, I stopped being exasperated with it. Now I'm kind of worried when they don't ask. — christine teigen (@chrissyteigen) May 29, 2018 but yeah, it's definitely a situational thing, though. depends on the day, depends on the agent, you never know! going to London is the most difficult with her in my experience. I have to bring a file folder of papers. — christine teigen (@chrissyteigen) May 29, 2018 Sounds like she gets where the airline is coming from. Where do U stand on this issue?

The 73-year-old actor was contacted by The Hollywood Reporter and Variety recently with plans to possibly publish allegations from an employee about an alleged incident that happened over 30 years ago. Douglas is being accused of masturbating in front of a former employee. “I got a message from my attorney that The Hollywood Reporter wanted to do a story about an employee that worked for me approximately 32 years ago,” Michael told Deadline in a new interview. “She claims that, One, I used colorful language in front of her, not at her, but that I used colorful language. Two, she claims that in conversations I had in front of her, on the phone, that I spoke raunchily, or dirtily with friends of mine, in private conversations. I fired her eventually, for the work she was doing, but Three, she claims that I blackballed her from the industry and stopped her form getting another job. And then, Four, she claims that I masturbated in front of her.” Michael says that the masturbation accusation “is a complete lie, fabrication, no truth to it whatsoever.” “I pride myself of being so supportive of the women’s movement. My mother was an actress, and I myself married to an actress [Catherine Zeta Jones] and have been supportive of this movement wholeheartedly, through all my years. I was forced to look over my past. I’ve had up to 20 female executives who worked at my company in different areas over the years. Over 20 producers I partnered with on pictures have been women. Not to mention all the actresses I’ve worked with and the hundreds of performers,” Michael added. “How am I, in a 50 year career in this industry, dealing with an employee 33 years ago who perhaps is disgruntled that I let her go, even though I have never heard from her in 32 years. And a legitimate trade publication is going to try and print this story? There is no corroboration, just that they found out somebody else might run the story.” You can read the full interview now on Deadline.com......»»

As we reported, the actress was arrested on Sunday for felony domestic violence and battery on a police officer -- an incident her loved ones are hoping will encourage her to seek treatment. Sources say the 56-year-old "knows help is available" for her battles with depression, anxiety, and substance abuse, as she has previously sought treatment over the years. Related: Catelynn Lowell Checks Out Of Rehab Amid Miscarriage However, those close to Locklear are well aware they can't force her to seek help; she has to make the decision herself. An insider explained to People: "She has to be ready to fix it herself. She knows help is available, she's sought it out before, but you can't force anybody to get help… It's heartbreaking." Locklear sought treatment for psychological issues at an Arizona facility in June 2008, where, according to her rep at the time, she "requested an in-depth evaluation of her medication" as she was "dealing with anxiety and depression." She returned back home in July 2008 after successfully completing four weeks of treatment -- but was arrested two months later on suspicion of driving under the influence in California. Related: Chevy Chase Reportedly Road Rages Out On 22-Year-Old The actress was formally charged with driving under "prescription medications" in November 2008, but the case was dismissed in January 2009. In 2010, she was arrested again for allegedly hitting a no-parking sign. Flash forward to this month, the actress got into a dispute with her boyfriend Chris Heisser that grew so violent, her brother called the police. This only set off the actress more, prompting her to allegedly scream and physically fight the responding officers. Locklear has been dating Heisser, her high school boyfriend, since last year. Friends are hopeful this incident was dire enough for the actress to seek help for her substance abuse, which People's source describes as "a disease." [Image via Media Punch.].....»»

In December 2017, right before the holidays, the Wall Street star said he received a message from his attorney that The Hollywood Reporter was circling a story about the aforementioned woman. Allegedly, the unnamed ex-employee says the now-73-year-old used colorful and raunchy language in front of (but not at) her, blackballed her from industry jobs after she was fired, and masturbated in front of her.

The thespian said: "As far as blackballing her, that was completely untrue. She was a lady who was involved in development at my company, and we just didn't have a good development record in the time she was there, so I just moved on. I never blackballed her. If people from the industry called me to ask about her, I would have been honest, but I never blackballed her. Finally, masturbating in front of her? I don't know where to begin. This is a complete lie, fabrication, no truth to it whatsoever." After the woman allegedly tried to shop the story to other outlets including Variety, Douglas had no choice but to come forward. "I had the choice of waiting for a story to come out, one that will clearly get picked up by other newspapers and magazines, and then I have to sit there and try to defend myself. Or, try to share with the public, a little ahead of the story, my thoughts and concerns. Again, I am sorry if I used coarse language with my friends. But this is really debilitating. It can have a large effect on my career. And also, I think it really sends a message out." Out of everything, the film legend is concerned with how these claims will affect his family, especially his kids who are "scared and very uncomfortable." "And I tried to figure out, why the hell would somebody do this? The part that hurt the worst is having to share something like this to your wife and your children. My kids are really upset, has to go to school worrying this is going to be in some article about me, being a sexual harasser. They're scared and very uncomfortable." As to her motive, Douglas believes the "blogger" is potentially "trying to get a book deal," or to possibly seek revenge. "The woman, it turns out, is a blogger. We've had to do some quick research, and she has mentioned my name sometimes in her blogs. Nothing terrible. It leads me to believe she either has or is trying to get a book deal. I can't believe that someone would cause someone else pain like this. Maybe she is disgruntled her career didn't go the way she hoped and she is holding this grudge. It has caused tremendous stress to me for something I believe I have nothing to regret or feel responsible for." When asked by the website, "Are you saying that you never harassed this woman, or anyone else, in such a salacious manner as she has alleged to a journalist?" he replied: "Absolutely; that's exactly what I am saying." No one in Hollywood is safe... [Image via Joseph Marzullo/WENN.].....»»
