All this Jimmy and Chinny is getting very close to my name - James Chinniah
at school if we thought someone was lying we would beat him - and say "chinny Rek on" i'm not sure of the exact spelling or meaning .......It was all peer presure I was only trying to be cool , it's not my fault
RATTY TATTY TAT!
(I never understood that one..heh heh)
Doyle was popular at our school for some strange reason as in:
I just spat a mouthful of Dr Pepper over my monitor when I read that. If ever a phrase deserved to be resurrected it's that one.
Along a similar line we also had 'Jimmy Hill' (of course) and also 'Tuten-carm-Mooooon', where the mild stroke of the chin was replaced by a weird imagined elongation of the chin into a moonlike crescent shape.
Other schoolyard insults included
'Joey Deacon' (although that was superceded by 'Rocky Dennis'),
'Spacko' (accompanied by tongue pushed behind lower lip and slapping of wrist),
'Skill' (the African bum disease)
We also used to find a hapless pupil, get a friend to kneel behind him and then engineer a conversation with him which ends with you pushing him over the knelt down accomplice to fall flat on his head
Other school phrases we had were
'Gert' ("X is gert good"),
'Wella' ("X is wella good"),
'Lair' or 'Lairy' ("X is lairy") or the ultimate accolade,
'Wella Lair' ("X is wella lair")
What are kids saying at the moment? Or are they too busy robbing mobile phones and stabbing each other for the kind of fun we used ot have?
Ok, wait. What's up with "chinny" as an insult? You calling people goats? Is that supposed to hurt?
My chins itchy, or my beards itchy were the insults we did when rubbing our chins
We had the chin one.
Cept our was normally, 'beeeeeeeeeeaaaaaaarrrrrrrddddddd'
or 'billy' as in billy goat with a beard on his chin I guess.
The kids (and bigger kids) now say phat...
Everything is phat...
Its the stupidest thing I've ever heard. Jon says it when he's been hanging with his young homeys. To which he gets severe raised eyebrows and waggly rulers.
Kids today try to talk like gangstas and it is the stupidest thing ever.
And what the flamin hell does Chinny Reckon mean?
When I was at school, it wasn't kicking chairs, it was chewing bits of paper and spitting it at the designated target.
And if anyone rubbed their chin and said chinnie chin chin or a variant thereof, they'd get the right royals kicked out of them for being a ****.
Aw yeah...soggy bombs.
I hated school
Woah! The way you said phat there man. That was PHAT!
//slapping Arun and Alpha with ruler
Yous sound like moids!
And what pray tell is a moid?
A robot with a fishtale parker and a Lambretta with lots of side mirrors?
My sis and her friend made the word up.
It is fitting for you spas's
//puts thumbs together in a v-shape, sticks up both index fingers to make a 'W' sign with both hands
man, I know someone who does that.
and clicks their fingers to get someones attention. I hate that.
A 15 year old kid did it to me the other day...I was impressed
Y'know, it just shows how much I've changed over the years. When I was engaged when I was 18, my fiancÃ©e used to click his fingers and whistle at me to get my attention...and I always came to heel (like a feckin puppy)...
Jeez...if ANYONE did that to me now...I'd rip their feckin heads off and **** down their necks!
