Inspired by the annoying people at work (http://www.absolutewrite.com/forums/showthread.php?t=88989) thread, and all this talk of stupid words and phrases that will never catch on.

I'm going to infest this board with Scottish slang and see if any of it does take.

First up: bogging. Preferably without the end-G as in boggin'. It means bad, nasty, disgusting, particularly with regard to food or smells.

As in, "This cake tastes totally boggin', like old man's arse!"

See if you can get the word into a sentence while I reboot and try to come up with some more Scottishisms.

Splendid! Now try to get this word into a sentence:

Stookie - the plaster applied to a broken limb.

That's a boggin' rann of farts you just emitted.

And a bit off topic, I love pronouncing dour as the Scots do, and then ripping another orifice on those who presume to tell me I should have pronounced it correctly to rhyme with hour.

The stookie on my mates leggin dried in spats. Like a bloke without any sense he took me hammer and smashed the wet cast then screamed.

"What the fuck you do that for?"

He tossed me a evil eye and said "Beast be in me leg, not a flog."

Now an expression of disbelief. Instead of saying "I am having a hard time believing you are being 100% honest with me," us Scots use the more economical, "Pish!"

But not in Ye Olde English way of saying, "Nonsense!" It has to be said with much more venom.

Two examples: "Yer talkin' pish!" or "Loadapish!"

Although, of course, the word on its own, said with enough contempt, should be sufficient.

Proceed.

Next word: stoor. Household dust.

As in, "I went to the pub with jst5150 and it'd been so long since he paid for a round, his wallet was covered in stoor."

Don't be bampot. I'm the first one to buy the round and my credit's good around the world. Ask around. ;)

"She would have gone further with the lad that night, but when he loosed his trousers, the stoor cloud grew like bubbles in a bath."

Chib. To hit someone with a big stick, occasionally a barman's comb*. Often used as a noun to describe the implement itself - commonly a broken-off chair leg or truncheon, nicked from a passing rozzer/pig/boaby (police officer).

*Barman's comb - baseball bat with nails hammered through it in a straight line, used for breaking up fights in rough pubs of a Friday or Saturday night.

I can't believe they still have baseball bats with nails through them in use as a practicality somewhere, but then again, it IS Scotland ...

"I would have chibbed him, but the Second Amendment allowed me a clean shot on his larynx. Besides, my chib is at the crib."
