Something Wicked...

Where do all of the stupid-ass words go? Personally, I have a few words and expressions which I feel need to come back into common usage. So today's entry will champion the cause of these recently disposed of bits of everyday language:

1.) Bring back the word DAVENPORT. Couch just does not have the same sophisticated ring to it. Couch sounds like something it would be okay to put your feet on, while davenport has a royal quality. usage: "Get your feet off the davenport! That's what the hassack is for!"

2.) What ever happened to WICKED? We need wicked, if only to give some Righ-Wing Consevative Christians something to worry about. usage:"That new Camaro is freakin' wicked!"

3.) I have very little love for AWESOME. Truth be known, it never really went away, not like DECENT did. Anyone else remember this? Decent generally used to describe something which is adequate. But in it's hey day, the word DEEEEEEECENT was actually used to describe things that were a bit more than adequate. usage: "Dude, my mom and dad will be out of town all weekend. Deeeeecent!"

4.) The formerly popular RAD or RADICAL or even it's long-winded cousin RADIBONZICAL, is due for a comeback. Well, maybe not. usage: "My new Vans are rad."

5.) NIFTY, KEEN, and NEAT-O are three of the lost generation of words. The first 2 date back into the 1950's while Neat-o seems to have originated in the 1970's. I think the jury is still out on these. usage: "This new bike is really nifty but do you know what would be really keen? A new banana seat would be really neat-o."

Pepper some of these into your daily conversations and watch people wonder just what type of drugs you were taking this morning.

well, RJ brought back "dillweed" and "dillhole" which are just wonderfully descriptive words.
Personally, I love "flabajoobia" which was popular in '97. I think I'll start saying that again. This post is flabajoobia.

Decent post and by that I mean "Deeeecent." What about "Busted horns - CRUNCH!"

That is so funny that you mention 'rad'. I don't say it and haven't heard anyone say it in years. But, I made a new friend the other week and he and all of his friends say 'rad' all the time. I was confused thinking maybe I had travelled back in time to the late 80's, but after consulting a calendar I saw that it was in fact still 2005. It blew my mind.
So rest assured, rad is still in use.
