    On a few ocassions I've had my choice of words/phrases on this forum questioned/laughed at. This is because I'm from a tiny shithole Potato Republic, and slang differs from area to area

    So I was wondering if y'all would like to share some of the weirdest slang you have heard. This includes those inside the US, because what I'm talking about is the SUPER obscure local slang...

    here's mine

    gaff - house/apartment/flat
    savage - something being really good
    savaiste - as above (only some bright spark tried to turn it into an irish adjective...)
    gift - really good, as in "that's gift"
    muppet - a contemptable person

    I'll think of more, now your turn....

    for my friends and I, gift means slippery craps.

    and presents means having sex.

    so when things are givin to people, we just refer to them as items.
