American Slang 23 July 2011 | 4 Comments

“What are we having for dinner mom?”  Tom asked his mother.
“Spuds!!!” she replied.

Slang of the day:  Spuds

Meaning:  Potatoes

Usage:  I love eating spuds, especially with a lot of butter.


Mom – I’ve been slaving in the kitchen all day long making this great dinner.  I hope you all like it.

Dad – What is this mushy gooey stuff?

Mom – Those are spuds! What did you think they were?

Dad – Oh, um, that’s exactly what I thought they were. I was just, um, kidding. hahaha.

Mom – haha, right.

    Dear Yvonne,
    I’ve heard this slang in American movies a lot. That was one of my favorites.
    BTW have you tried spuds with souces? It tastes amazing.

    I love potatoes and different types of sauces. I had some at lunch with a cheese sauce. They were great!
