White TeethJust a quickie today. Do you know a tosser from a jumper? If not, play the “Smashing Slang” flash game on the PBS website. The game is based on slang expressions used in the TV series “White Teeth” (based on the novel by Zadie Smith).

“Even if you’re wrong, you’ll add a colourful phrase to your vocabulary”. That’s what the makers of the game promise. Just don’t use these terms in your essays, thank you πŸ™‚

There’s more info about the novel and the series
on the PBS website.

  1. I’ve played it. The only dodgy one imho is ‘wanker’ for ‘idiot’. ‘Wanker’ is quite harsh and obscene – I didn’t realise it was a legitimate substitute for ‘idiot’. I certainly wouldn’t use it! The rest was easy peasy lemon squeezie πŸ˜›

  2. It would have been a shame had you make any mistakes πŸ˜‰ But the wanker one was odd indeed .

  3. ha ha good one!! πŸ™‚
