    Well I was sitting here trying to think of a game to play, so I thought of this one.

    Write one slang word you use, what it means and an example within a sentence.

    One of mine is "corker".

    Corker — Someone, something or a situation that is outstanding.

    "That was a right corker that, when you got drunk and fell into that womens swimming pool, taking a short cut home from the pub"

    My one friend and I make up words. One of the ones we use is "snarf"

    Snarf - to wolf down one's food.

    "Wow, he really snarfed down that ice cream, didn't he?"

    I think most people know what this means (?), but when I'm feeling extra Bay Area, I'll use the word "hella" (meaning really/very/a lot of). Like "This burrito is hella good" or "There are hella people here." Not many people use it out here, but it was definitely big in San Francisco.

    Around here we call people that are a pain in the ass "honyocks", which I was unaware until somewhat recently was an ethnic slur.

    Not sure if slang, but I say weird things like this:

    What in the cold/clear blue hell
    Slower than molasses
    Hotter than Hades
    Not even
    Yeah right (sounds more like yah but whatever :p)

    I say wronk instead of wrong sometimes.. i'm not sure why.. I think it feels more gutteral and satisfying to me in some strange ocd way.

    I still sometimes say 'wicked' being a new england boy at heart.

    Bath, as in bubble bath:

    "You're avin a bath (pronounced "barf") ain't ya?" or
    "You avin a bubble?"

    Roughly translated:
    "Is one having a laugh at one's expense?"

    Wow I haven't even heard of a lot of those words lol.

    I don't say it, but a lot of people near here say "yinz" instead of "you all". Like, "Hey, what are yinz doing?"

    I don't know if it's just here (AUS) but over the last few years people answer questions with "Yeah, nah" as in "Yes, no".

    "The conditions were rough but you seemed to handle the pressure. Was it as difficult as it looked?"

    "Yeah, nah. It was tougher than usual but that's what we're trained for."

    I'm watching the winter Olympics atm so that's why it sounded like a reporter speaking to an athlete. :p

    Oh everybody around here says "wicked" for "very"
    Like, it's wicked cold & wicked snowy. I'm sure some of you are familiar with this. It's pretty stupid, but I do it too sometimes.
    Yeah, like @crumbum said. New England is lame
