Frackin' Friday - By SaucyKodz

Have another great guest post for you. In honor (should I use honour?!) of our time up north, I have a great Frackin' Friday from SaucyKodz, a blogger out in small town Atlantic Canada. 

Hope ya'll enjoy!! Take it away, Lilly!

Everyone in their own little corner of the world, city or town use slang words – kinda makes words less formal, eh. Slang relaxes the mouth and allows for a more comfortable speaking process...breaking down or creating your own words, does take away from “speaking proper english”, however, who’s to say “our slang” isn’t “proper english”, or whatever language another might create slang words in, right?

I figure it’s all proper, no matter how you use it, and I would have to learn an awful lot of slang, if I were to visit you all, right. Adding “right” or “eh” at the end of your sentence is a wee bit of Canadian slang – instead of saying “Isn’t that right”, all you have to do, is add “right or eh” at the end of your sentence, right! 

Slang also allows for more of an identity of a person or place, when speaking, right. You can personalize slang and talk how you want to talk, as opposed to following standard English protocol. 

I really enjoy “Frackin’ Friday” and have some good giggles, and have taken some time to write down a few of ours. Hope you enjoy them.

And – just to add some colour, "So hungry could eat the arse off a skunk" 

Haha, I have heard "So hungry I could eat a horse" but nothing ever about a skunk. Ya'll must get real hungry up there! Thanks for the guest post, Lillly!

  2. did that, done that... all done.
    quote of my year, so if some asks where or how the job is going.
    happy "f" friday.

  3. Haha, love Saucy's blog and now these great sayings! Don't think I could beat the skunk one downunder - but I'll see what I can come up with!

    Happy birthday!!

  4. This frackin friday is a really good one- good guest post choice! Each one is perhaps better than the next today- although I think "shack wacky" might be my favorite :)

  5. Our upstairs neighbor and friend is Canadian--I'll have to see if he uses any of these when we see him next :)

    Happy Friday!

  9. Great guest post!!! Some of those sayings nearly sound Southern. I like "great day to set a hen." And I definitely plan to use it sometime.

  10. How 'bout" "Uglier than a hat fulla a**holes"?
    I will say this, the South has the best slang expressions.

    It was a "Great day to set a hen here" today,there was some quiet talkin' down by da gatepost, ran into a couple of "Hard Looking Tickets", down by the river, on an early morning run with PJ.
    A Fella passed by me at the lights who was uglier than a brush wire fence - couple of fellas at Timmies looked like they giver wide open last night and NO, I DID NOT EAT THE ARSE OFF THE SKUNK, but we did have home made PIZZA and the "Hungry enough to eat" was indeed there :)
    Smiles n chuckles everyone
