Labs 1st Post! Be careful what you say…

If you remember “groovy” “grouse” or “far out” you might be called old, but think about it – “cool” isn’t as recent as you think. First used in 1933, popularised (yes I’m not American, I spell proper ;p) by jazz artists and much later revived but evolved. Sayings or jargon varies from place to place, often strictly local. For example if you are told  “saunter” in Dublin you should leave – you’re being told to f*** off (saunter on mate). The Irish are even more fond of jargon and colloquialism than Cockneys and that’s saying a lot.
