To see ourselves as others see us
From a friends Facebook page yesterday...
"Energy saving speil" = Sales talk by somebody trying to get you to switch electricity providers
"dodging the big issue dude" = Trying to avoid the man selling the magazine for homeless people
"switching sides to be baked by the talk talk folk" = Crossing the street only to be harassed by the telephone company salespeople
"the johos outside the old tiser building" = The JWs outside the old newspaper office.
"street trolls" = Priceless!
Thank you for translating. I would've had no clue. What version of slang is this?
Berwick-on-Tweed in NE England is a small town with a dialect all of its own.
