I just thought it would be interesting to see things which others say that i've never heard of lol I'm abit bored but hey this could be useful for those doing English Language hehe.

    made up - really happy
    lazzy band - elastic band
    scally - aka chav, cause trouble
    'dead' i put this in front of quite alot of word just 4 emphasis really just another word for 'very'
    when you 'skit' at some one you take the 'mick' or ridicule them.
    Hope that helps
