    Looks like I gotta favorite this link cos I can’t look up some slang in my dictionary.

  2. Gabriel says:

    What the heck!? So that’s the origin of Rugrats, the series about adventurous babies? LOL!

  3. Yvonne says:

    Sorry to hear that slang isn’t in your dictionary, but glad I could help! I’ll keep the slang coming for you!

  4. Yvonne says:

    Yes, Gabriel. Crazy, huh? I made 1 typo though. I wrote rugrats at 2 words, it should be one. I’m changing that now.

  5. Ed Orange says:

    Not 2 worry; I know some of the slang R so brand-new most dictionary publishers find it so hard to keep up w/z the trend. Some words R out, others R in – that’s how things go.

  6. Yvonne says:

    That’s good. I’m glad you have some sources of slang. :)

  7. Very cool post.

    I think they’re called rugrats because of the way that, as babies, they crawl around on the rug (which is another word for carpet). Maybe that is obvious even to non-English speakers – but I thought I would point it out!

  8. Yvonne says:

    Yes, just like little rats. LOL
