NEW YORK (CBSNewYork) — Many ladies love their handbags and will spend a lot of money for the latest and greatest, but a new study says what is inside those bags may be covered in germs worse than what you’ll find in the bathroom.
You know what clothing company definitely doesn't come to mind when you think of words like "hood," "thug" and "phat"? Express - the least urban brand on this side of your local mall. But in the 90s, as an attempt to relate to customers, Express put out this oh so wrong, but oh so hilarious, guide to street slang. Tru dat. Screw being on the forefront of trends in fashion, it's all about the dope slang, peeps!
Here are 20 of the best terms (that you probably didn't even know in the 90s) from their "Express You! Street Verbage Guide." Commit them to memory and drop them in everyday conversation, then let us know what happens. (We're trying to make fetch happen, people.) Feel me?
