Meaning of Ace Boon Coon

Ace Boon Coon means: A euphemistic way of saying my ni**a or my best friend. Note: because of the use of the word 'coon' this is a very explosive word just like the 'N' word. African Americans may use it among themselves, but it is rude (and grounds for a beat down in some circles)for someone of another ethnicity to use it. In other words, it's an 'off-limits' word.  "Johnny and me been down since we was shorties. You know he my Ace Boon Coon." 

Meaning of frigging

Meaning of quite

quite means: n kind of; sort of: What did you think of Jean’s new boyfriend? / Hmm, yeah, I suppose he was quite nice. This is something of a tough one because Brits will also use quite, in the same way as Americans, to mean “very.” The only real way to determine exactly which type of quite is being used is to look at how expressive the word that follows it is. If it’s a word like “perfect” or “delicious” then it’s being used the positive way; if it’s a word like “nice” or “pleasant” then it’s negative.

What you been up to Dun?" 

Meaning of cootch

cootch means: Woman's genital area This word raises all sorts of interesting possibilities since the old Welsh word 'cwtch' (which has a similar pronunciation) is often used to mean a 'place of comfort'.

Meaning of F-word

Meaning of queue

queue means: n, v, pron. “cue” line. This doesn’t really help the definition at all, as a line could be any number of things. A pencil line? A railway line? A line of Charlie? A line dancer? As a result of this potentially dangerous confusion, a word was developed by some British word-scientists to separate this particular line from all the others. A queue is a line of people. To queue is to be one of those queuing in the queue. The word means “tail” in French, and is used in the same context. Americans do in fact use the word, but only in the “you’re third in the queue” type telephone call waiting systems.

Meaning of chach

chach means: (ed: have added this verbatim - I have no idea if it's serious or not, but since it's Californian - and weird - it could well be true! Personally I'm quite happy with saying 'orange orange'.) Chach describes the color of something that is orange. It's very confusing to have the color and fruit both have the same name, and sounds stupid to say, "Hey, look at that orange orange!" Also, a foreigner might get confused when they hear "Look at that orange book," and not see any fruit on the cover. In order to clear up the whole mess, this new word describing the color previously known as orange has been invented and spread about Northern California, and now everybody knows what it means and is grateful for the substitute word. It needs to be spread to the rest of the world, appeasing the minds of all others who speak the English language, and the word 'orange' no longer has any meaning when dealing with color. "Hey, look at that chach orange!" Doesn't that sound much better? something to be 'chach', We are grateful for the word 'chach', and this should be a big step in informing others and should soon become a common word everywhere, and the word currently used for the color, 'orange', will be erased from the world of adjectives forever!

Meaning of Bugger

Bugger means: originally used to refer to two men having intercourse and was the B word instead of the modern day F word. ‘Bugger’ is now often used as ‘bummer’ meaning ‘what a shame’, a few years ago a Toyota TV commercial drew some criticism from older people for repeating the word ‘bugger’ about 25 times in half a minute. Something that is broken can be ‘buggered’ and someone can tell you to ‘bugger off’ and a person who has bad luck can be described as ‘a poor bugger’.
