Moxie's Urban Term of the Day

I thought this would be a fun thing to start. Feel free to add term's if you'd like, but please keep them respectful of other people's race, gender, religion and roots and keep away from swears. Yes I know that puts a damper on some things, but I'm sure we're all mature enough to have fun with out disrespecting people.. Other wise, try to keep terms inoffensive.

My first term, something I use often:

Oy vey:
Yiddish for "oh woe", a Jewish expression often of frustration, but also of excitement.

"It's only Tuesday? Oy vey!"[/u]

Why is it 'urban'? O__O

The random phrases I tend to throw into my speech are often Welsh.

Diolch: dee-olch, with ch as in Bach or loch, this is Welsh for 'thanks'.
Os gwelwch yn dda: 'please' in Welsh; a comparable phrase to 's'il vous plait'. This one's quite complicated to pronounce:
os: somewhere between the sounds in 'on' and 'horse'. Make your mouth very round with your tongue low down.
gwelwch: gwel-ooch, with the same ch as before.
yn: un as in fun
dda: tha, rhyming with car, th as in this.

I know it doesn't look it, but Welsh is very easy to pronounce once you learn what its sounds are :)

If you believe everything you read, better not read.

Couching Distance:
The distance one can reach without leaving the couch or sofa.

"Can you get the remote, I can't reach it, it's out of couching distance."

I love this one. Hahahha

Uhm I don't really know if its urban but alot of people say "yea that's mad cool" and thinks like that. To translate the sentence mad basically means super.

"Thats mad cool!"
"Thats super cool!"

I love "couching distance," too! I've never heard that before.

I used to work in a retail store and sometimes customers would come in and say "what happened?" when they missed something the owner was saying to them. When they left the owner would rant about how much he hated that expression - "what do you mean, 'what happened?' You were standing right there! The sky fell, that's what happened!"

Does that count as one? Wha' happened?
