Best Jargon Terms of 2009

- By Bossip Staff

2009 has been a crazy and strange year to so many, it’s no wonder the jargon, buzzwords and slang terms have become even crazier. Since the start of the year, how many people have pretended to understand a phrase and later turned to the person nearest you and asked, “Soooo, what does that mean?” Or, “What in the world is a Gut Full o’ Human? That sounds pretty vile.” Or is that precisely the point? To leave an impression or add just enough shock value to your conversations that you will forever be remembered as the girl who said I had “panty droppa” potential. Here are a few catchphrases that stood out in 2009. Take a look and leave your thoughts!

10.) “Chopped down” – a Bossip term used to describe when two people are getting it in or sexually engaging wheather it’s one night, months or a lifetime. If you got the buns you’ve been chopped down.

9.) Autotune – nobody really understood what autotune is until Jay-Z told it to die … or a little before because music nowadays has folks wondering why everybody sounds like T-Pain or Roger Troutman for the oldheads.

8.) Fail – a sad or unrealistic attempt to pull something off with great ease but from the gate it was unsuccessful and the person probably knew it or is in a state of denial.

7.) “Miss me with the BS” – in other words, don’t approach anyone fully aware that you’re trying to play him or her. Try it on a sucka that you can run game on.

6.) Twitter – overnight networking phenomenon that propelled someone to baller status for such an ingenious idea. Celebs and everyday folks have now found a way to communicate instantaneously … “tweeting.” Not too long ago, most were asking, “what is this ‘Twitter’ ish I keep hearing about?”

5.) “Tea bagger” – became a politically incorrect term when health care reform became an issue. “Tea Parties” were the folks who marched outside the White House and started fights at town hall meetings because they disagree with President Obama’s agenda. While the true slang term refers to someone who sucks on scrotums … somehow “Tea Party Protesters” adopted the title.

4.) “No Homo” – fellas, it’s okay for you to express your love to your brethren as long as you follow up with this catchphrase. Example: “You know Tony, you’re a good-looking guy No homo. No homo.” *casually* “You have no game.”

3.) “Sexting” – you know those raunchy text messages you get from your significant other describing all the things they want to do to your body. It’s not officially sexting until you get one back and it becomes an exchange. You can’t be the only one “sexting.”

2.) “Kill yo’ self” – this is wrong on so many levels because if someone was really fragile and wanted to take their own life and they did because you told them, you would feel guilty for the rest. But when used in a caring sense, all it means is “don’t do that” or “why would you do that? You might as well …”

1.) “Chris Brown’d” – when a man physically assaults a woman in an angry fit of rage. Ok, it’s terrible. We know. But it is what is is. Sorry Breezy.

Happy Holidays, Bossip fam! Here’s to a bigger and brighter 2010!
