lol beans

April 18, 2011

Heard a new one today.

Two years ago, I saw Speed Racer, and the phrase ‘cool beans’ has worked its way into my lexicon. I know it doesn’t originate from Speed Racer, but that’s where I got it from.

Since then, I’ve noticed a few friends begin to use it. Not alot, but the occasional ‘cool beans’ was more than fleeting. I don’t think that I – or Speed Racer – can take credit for these people using the old phrase, but nevertheless, it’s making a small comeback.

Today, I received an e-mail with ‘lol beans.’

I love it.

And I will use it.

Because it is great.

(And so is Speed Racer.)

It means ‘to eff’

This word came up in a scrabble game:

swive – a synonym for the f-word. The latter first appears around 1500, and ‘swive’ (related to ‘swivel’) is the term previously used. The verb to quim may refer only to the female’s role in the activity.

God give you both one shame’s death to dien!
He swived thee; I saw it with mine eyen.

I have thries [thrice] in this shorte night
Swived the miller’s daughter bolt-upright,
