In less than five years it will be the 2020s. We think now's the time to dust off some of the best slang terms from the last Roaring Twenties to get you "on the trolley" for the upcoming Roaring Twenties.
The alternative is to be perceived as an Apple Knocker, a flat tire, a palooka. And that would be a sad fate indeed for a member of the Fritterati.
So put on your glad rags and get ready for some darp slang terms from that decade when tea-hounds roamed the streets, only to be tragically run over by breezers. We put links below for more terms.
Bank's closed: you're not getting a kiss out of me
Breezer: a convertible car
Butt me: Give me a cigarette
Darb: Someone or something that is excellent
Glad rags: Dress-up clothes
Handcuff: Engagement ring
High-hat: To snub
Now you're on the trolley!: You've figured something out
Oilcan: An imposter
Rock of Ages: Any woman over age 30
Tea-hound: An inveterate pursuer of women
Weed: A flapper who takes risks
Here are the links we promised:
