  • I've used some of these phrases my whole life. Picked up shenanigans from my late grandmother and it was an active part of my vocabulary when I was 12, mainly because I was raised in a household where we weren't allowed to curse unless we were injured or immediately prefaced or followed the curse with the phrase "for lack of a better term." We had 'alternative curse words' for days. Flim-flam-fliggle-floggle-floodle was my favorite because it made all the adults in my family laugh. Like, they knew what I wanted to be saying, but apparently it was hilarious to hear an eight year old censor herself.

  • I'm in my 30s, and "shenanigans" is a regular word used by me and my friends. We're screwed, aren't we? Lol. I actually use most of those terms somewhat often. I blame having old school parents, so my mentality is closer to that of a 60-ye.... Excuse me. Gotta go chase some kids off my lawn. Daggone whippersnappers always causing a ruckus.

  • “Fair to middling”. A “hoot” means, funny or something to hoot about. A ‘hand basket’ is a small basket you carry in your hand. Great stuff.

  • When my father got old and someone asked him how he was doing, he would say "I'm hanging in by a thread" now that I'm 59 and someone asks me how am I doing, I say the same thing. When my boss was 44 years old he would say fair to middlan. I guess when you get that age your old!? I was 34 and had never heard that phrase before.

  • hand basket. in the 1800s, brakemen on trains worked on a catwalk on the roof of rail cars. if the train passed under a tree, bridge or other structure while he was up there, or he fell between cars, his remains (after lying in a hot mail car for a week or two in a hand basket) would be dropped off to relatives. (greatgreatsomething was a conductor) may be the origin of "basket case". love ya.

    • @littleangel309 Steiman. people like you are a drain on society. I posted a comment. It wasn't mean or disrespectful but factual. Then you come onto my comment and make statements about me not getting the intelligent joke and so on. So I respond to you in a direct response to YOUR comments and you don't take any responsibility for your words or actions. You're one of those people who can dish it out but when someone calls you out on it you act hurt. If you were legally blind and using a cane like you say, you would not be able to use your tiny little phone to post comments on KGworld. Why don't you go back and read your comments to me. Better yet, have someone you know read them and tell you how you are the one who started this whole mess? You can have all the "evigence" as you said that you want but yours is "evigence" too. Goodbye.

    • DEBBY MCCORMICK.. The internet is monitored so that people like you get barred from comment threads that are really for fun type comments.When someone like you goes on and starts calling someone a liar, or telling someone they must have a sad little life,and of the other egregious things you have posted and sent to my phone they get penalized. YOU have gone on and on and keep telling me that Ron Ruhman made a mistake and I said it was not a mistake-it was kept insisting that I explain it to you. I t became apparent that you just wanted to battle with his reputauion...and with mine.But I finally realized there was no getting through to you and told you to drop it...that comedy is supposed to be fun. I have never disrespected you...I was just saying to drop it You on the other hand have become one of those people who get pleasure out of reducing yourself to a child's level. I don't tolerate these games of yours. So I have taken steps to stop it.
