And Mary said "Lets all go to the GinMill to get some Giggle Juice!"
But Chad disagreed, "You know that drugstore cowboy is still over there, Baby" He turned to Billy, "Butt me."
Mary smiled, "Aww, that Ragamuffin leaves us all alone, ya know that, daddy. Don`t you be such a wet blanket. We can take my Flivver."
"Aww that ol` thing? applesauce! It gives me the heebie jeebies!" Pat said with a grimace.
So the 4 friends went into a quarrel about whether or not to go to the speakeasy or not.

duh ...the point is alot of these things are still around ... they just got popular in the 1920`s
also ... where do you think the term sugardaddy came from ... basically the same as "who`s your daddy" ... not necessarily meant in an incestual way

It`s weird to think that we still use a lot of 20s slang.....yet we make fun of the way our grandparents talk to us when they try to be all cool and use their slang....someone needs to make a list of all the slang today...then our grandkids can see how we talked.....and make fun of us

All Wet - describes an erroneous idea or individual, as in, "he`s all wet."

My, times have changed. O_o; Nowadays, the line "he`s all wet" would raise some questions is to if he was even really a HE. :/
