When I saw "hullabaloo" I started looking for "foofaraw".

I don't know why, but this quiz made me want to listen to The Streets.

druhutch: Is a "foofaraw" a "hullabaloo"? I'm "befuddled."

"Plastic" can mean fake. Using "bogus" to mean fake isn't slang; "bogus" is only slang when used in a more general way to mean bad or uncool.

Manticore: Your comment is not bogus. I will switch it out.

I've used "kicks" for shoes, and "rims" can also mean glasses/sunglasses. Very fun quiz.

Great mix of recent slang/ old timey slang/ long-running slang/ young ppl's words/ old ppl's words ... good stuff! Next can you make a clickable UK - US equivalents quiz? Lift-elevator, boot-trunk, mustache-Ronnie, etc.

There were so many that I started looking for a definition only to realize the word I was thinking of is ALSO slang... like "cool" for phat, etc.

Maybe I watch too many war movies, but it seems to me that "ping" could mean recognition. When a submarine "pings" you, it isn't notifying you of something -- it knows you're there. If "ping" has two different slang meanings, maybe the quiz should be altered so they aren't both featured? Or does the sonar meaning not count as slang?

Yeah, I at once looked for Stella when I saw "wife beater". Some of these are different outside the US.
