words is fun

Did y'all know that "chicken head" is synonymous with "slut" or "whore"?

I totally didn't. I don't even know why it means that. This one goes over my head.

I learned this is class the other night, making a list (class activity, obviously) of words that represent a certain level of promiscuity in both males and females. You know, things like: slut, whore, hooch, tramp, and man-whore, gigolo, player (or if you're cooler than me, 'playa') and such. Um, also, bird? and chickenhead?

Where the fuck have i been? Chickenhead? Seriously? What does it even mean?? I remember when "village bicycle" was cute and funny. Chickenhead?

Damn, kids today...

  • Didn't Dave Chappelle do a Chicken Head skit a couple of years ago? I think that was the first time I heard it. And what does it mean if someone calls a person a chicken butt???

  • minijonb - actually that makes a lot of sense, the dave chappelle thing. i don't remember the episode, though... a chicken butt? i don't know, but it sounds dirty... rawr.

  • My take on it is... ya know... the bobbing head...?

  • it eludes me, but i like it!
    much more visual than, say, 'slut'.
    so blah. 'chickenhead'; now, thats a picture! not a pretty one, but there ya go.

  • insert name here - hi! i totally missed that one; it doesn't sound familiar at all. thanks for clearing that up, though. yep, we had ho, hobag, and a bunch of others i wish i had written down. :) link away, if you like.

    jessica - hmm...sexy.

    first nations - right? i don't know, it kind of bugs me because i used to call my friend a chickenhead. I don't remember why. pet names - who knows where they come from.

  • Yeah, I knew that's what it meant, just didn't know why.

    but Jess - you're so SMART! I never even thought about that.

  • Uhhh...really? Even with Jessica's logic, I don't see it! Am I obtuse?

  • claire: the chicken butt thing is the punch line to the worst schoolyard joke ever:

    a: "What's up?"
    b: "Chicken Butt."

    It's how you respond to someone who always says "What's up" all the freakin' time. Some people turn it around and just say "whatsupchickenbutt" ...
    :wacko:

  • Oh honey! Chickenhead is an OLD. That was around when I was in high school.

    What other words do I need to educate you on?

  • i remember when 'buffalo' meant the same thing.
    does anybody say that anymore?

    By Blogger First Nations, at 8/07/2006 2:11 PM  

  • minijonb - woo! you crazy kids...

    orelinde - i had no idea. i guess its not from dave chappelle.

    first nations - buffalo? where did you grow up? i would imagine that would be more of a mid-western / western thing. New York, not so much.
