You're so nang

I was in the North West over the weekend, ostensibly to help look after my parents' house while they are away.

We went out drinking in Manchester with my sister and her friends on Saturday night and I was introduced to one who was a secondary school teacher.

As I always do in such situations, I begged to be told what the "latest" slang words are in use by "da kids".

  • Sick = Good

  • Butters = Ugly

  • Nang = Good

I was particularly impressed by "Nang". It is an excellent word and I shall use it in future. I was even more impressed when I checked BBC News online this morning and there was an article about the cockney accent. Nang, my new favourite word, gets a namecheck. Sick!
