1. Abide by the Terms and Conditions of ATS

2. No Profanity

4. If you would'nt say it in front of a child, or your mother, please refrain from saying it here!

Thanks, Mechanic 32.

Now let the fun begin:

I always found this very humourous.

I have always loved the words used in the city were i live, we have one of the most distinctive accents in the world (remember the Beatles). Not only that but we also have that many unique words and phrases that its almost like a different language.

My favorite one is:

'Our Kid' - which is used when talking about your younger brother, yep it has nothing to do with your kids lol. If you were talking about your children you would call them by the term 'Sprog'

Here are a few more:

Ullo dur - Greetings! Pleased to make your acquaintance
Wack - Sir
Antwaccky - Dead Old; Ancient

There is a good list of Scouse words and phrases at This site, it make for a good read.

"Bob's your uncle" cracks me up. And I have no idea what it means.

We all know Canadians have a beautiful accent, and truth be told not everyone speaks proper english in some parts.

So a constant phrase I here is...

"Wuts yur Fadders name bi?"

Always followed by...

"I tinks I went to School Wit 'em Eh!"

I heard this one today, laughed my patookis off:

“Im busier than a one legged man at a butt kicking contest”

And an “odd” one that I just find personally hilarious:

“One metric butt load”

I mean really, adding the “metric” to that oldie just makes it funny for some reason, gives it some credibility as a real quantity or something
