Funny Words and Phrases

There are many words in the kings english that are quite simply funny…either funny to say or funny to hear. They’re just funny.

Here are a few that no matter when I hear them I smile…and when I hear someone say them I smile. Dare I say giggle like a six year old at times. (Juvenile words not included … pharmaceutical commercial phrases not included…plantes not included…because…well they’re funny).

And of course…you can never underestimate the person who delivers the word or phrase…the individual style or tone adds so much value to the experience. Movie quotes or phrases don’t count…that’s another blog. I’m certain there are a thousand more that I’ve forgotten so throw a few back at me if you have a number of favorites.




You betcha (Fargo…der now)



What not (an over used midwest phrase)


Shite (as a brit would say it)

Naked (say it like a hick and you’ll get it)


Paradiddle (get out the drum sticks)

Why I outta…



Any swear word said out loud by a woman over the age of 80



Rumpus (Actually…Most words spoken in Irish)




And long string combination of curse words amongst the right friends


Pantywaist (thanks Grandpa)

I’m sure I forgot a few hundred of my favorites…so I’ll have to add them when I think of more. What are some of yours?
