While researching Medieval jargon, I found some slang terms that I found somewhat interesting. There are ten of them. Take a look and try to add them to your vocabulary so we can get one step closer to becoming a gaggle of babbling idgits.
1. Hufty-Tufty: A braggart, or one with swaggering manners.
2. Pitchkettled: Puzzled or confounded.
3. Nose of Wax: Fickle Personality, or one who often changes under minute influence.
4. Gundygut: A glutton or a voracious eater.
5. Gardyloo: A warning cry before throwing dirty water or slop from windows into the street; used in Edinburgh, Scotland.
6. Bellytimber: Food, sustenance, nourishment.
7. Balmy on the Crumpet: Crazy or insane.
8. Tirliry-Puffkin: A flirtatious woman, albeit light-headed and flighty.
9. Adam’s Ale: An amusing term for water, as it was the only drink available in the garden of Eden.
10. Fadoodle: Nonsense. Though, Urban Dictionary says it means penis, and uses this example, “Let me slide my fadoodle in your fanooder for a little bit.” Or, as definition four from the same entry poignantly defines, Fadoodle means, “Fingering a dickhole.”
Let’s just say it means nonsense.
