    Yeah. That bugs me. 5-0 too.

    I won't be doing those. It'll be "peelers", "bobbies" and "the filth". ;)

    Really? Obviously wasn't going to do that anyway, but didn't know that. I'll have to google the contemporary definition.

    I wondered when po-po would be used in the UK. I've heard it on US TV series and guessed it would only be a matter of time before people used it in the UK.

    And this is where different languages can get interesting/ funny ^^

    Here "popo" is one of the words we use for bum/ behind.
    And yes, it's an absolute clean word, not an insulting one.

    'On fleek' = On point = (very) good

    Lots of people say 'feds' to refer to the police now despite not being American.

    ?? I thought you were looking for modern expressions - most everything ( if ya don't mind an outsiders opinion ) I'm seeing is old as the hills.

    "Feds", "five-oh", "sick" it is! American is the communal dungheap of slang.

    BTW, the term "fatty" - disregarding old school ska - the modern meaning breaks the drug reference TOS, so I won't mention it :vanish:

    That joke has worn out to the point I genuinely want to nut people who say it.

    Incidentally, "nut" means headbutt :p

    I have a horrible admission to make that I do use the term "sick" and in my head I do say five oh. I watch far too many American comedians.

    Feds is only so frustrating to me because we don't have a federal police department so its nonsensical. Most American slang being used here I can deal with as a result of the internetz but that one is annoying. If you're going to steal words, at least steal the ones that make sense.

    You think I know what I'm doing? ;)

    It doesn't have to be new, just in use.

    Don't the kids say "radical" these days! God, I'm so out of touch.

    It may not be modern or cool, but I maintain that numpty is still one of the best words in the English language.
