Tag. I’m it!


I’ve been tagged by three fellow bloggers for “Tag, you’re it.” Now, I haven’t been tagged in a bad way, unlike the possibilities in my previous post (TAG). This is a game of questions and here’s how it works.

Post the rules, which are:

Answer taggers 11 questions and post to your blog. Also, link the tagger. (yes)

Come up with 11 new questions to give 11 new people. Post the questions and link those bloggers. (no, later)

Let them know on their blog that they’ve been tagged. (see above)

Elyse tagged me: http://fiftyfourandahalf.com/2012/02/25/the-slow-kid-gets-it-again/ It was optional for any reader, but she mentioned me by name and said I probably wouldn’t do it…..so I had to.

TAG: The new four letter word or the only word you’ll ever need?


SO……There’s something new going around the blogosphere, which I’m sure many of you are already aware of. It’s a new game of sorts called “Tag, you’re it.” It seems innocent enough, but for kicks, I looked in the Urban Dictionary for definitions of TAG. Big mistake!

  • Krxcial says it means: Mentally retarded human being who tries to rape others
  • Julia in down town Denver says: to have sex or fuck
  • Taylorgio Armani: a unique person who likes grapes and ribs
  • jackb1211: to shoot someone with a gun
  • Creative black guy 43: to shoot a girl’s vagina with a nerf gun (stick dart) and leave a mark
  • Astroboy: masturbation
  • Jakestar: a quick, sharp blow to the scrotum
  • Agbujale&Stone: to cut or fuck up
  • suks: a communist whose sole purpose in life is to find cheaper and better vodka
  • Il Piu Lucroso: not cool
  • parkmybus: to insert a thumb in a woman’s ass
  • Watashi: to punch someone
  • Amber: ass or butt

Okay……So let me get this straight. If I’m in with the streetwise slang slinger’s who came up with this shit and had this story to tell:

Boris was truly a unique guy. He loved grapes and ribs while masturbating. Sometimes it was lonely. People saw him only as a communist whose sole purpose in life was to find cheaper and better vodka. No one saw him as a real man.

Boris wanted to prove everyone wrong by doing something manly. He could punch someone, or better yet, shoot someone with a gun. Then he remembered he didn’t own a firearm. So he thought he could find a girl to have sex with. If not, perhaps a girl whose vagina he could shoot with a Nerf gun and leave a mark .

Boris set out to find this special someone. He approached a young woman and asked if he could insert his thumb up her ass or butt. She gave him a quick, sharp blow to the scrotum and told him to back off or she’d cut him and fuck him up.

“That’s not cool”, said Boris.

The girl replied, “What are you, some mentally retarded human being who tries to rape others?”

It would be rewritten by the new voice of America per Urban Dictionary as:

Boris was a tag, who tagged. Sometimes it was lonely. People saw him as a tag. No one saw him as a real man.

Boris wanted to prove everyone wrong by doing something manly. He could tag someone, or better yet, tag someone. Then he remembered he didn’t own a firearm. So he thought he could find a girl to tag. If not, perhaps a girl to tag.

Boris set out to find this special someone. he approached a young woman and asked if he could tag her or tag. She have him a tag and told him to back off or she’d tag him.

“Tag”, said Boris.

The girl replied, “What are you, tag?”

Okay folks, that’s a look at what idiots pass off as street slang. I’m all for saying things in a more concise way, but What the TAG?!!?
