Sample text

Help stamp out Bogarting, roll them longer with Esmeralda' (advert for cigarette papers in Private Eye, 23 Aug 1974), but initiates will experience no problems. Boiler. A woman of loose habits, but not a prostitute. The exact degree of moral laxity is always vague, and in the theatrical/musical world it usually implies little more than 'tired, dishevelled troupers'. This is almost certainly what is to be understood by 'two boilers in various states of undress' (New Musical Express, 7 Oct 1978).

It is important to note that by the early 1960s 'camp' had moved unmistakably down-market. It had established itself on at least the upper levels of pop culture, although both then and now it is still used by the trendier type of intellectual, although much less so than ten years ago. Carry. To possess illegal drugs. A meaning which is now, in the 1980s, fairly widely understood, but which is unlikely to be actually used by anyone who is not at least on the fringes of the drug world. This world, of course, includes the police.

The gig was fantastic- we went down a bomb' (Pink, 12 May 1979) is a modern example of an expression which has been in use on both sides ofthe Atlantic for 30 years, although, outside the more highly Americanized section of the entertainment world, the more grammatical, 'we went down like a bomb' is probably more common. Boo-boo. A mistake, usually an embarrassing one. This rather coy term originated in the USA in the early 1950s and the British press was using it ten years later. It has remained entirely a journalist's word, mainly on The Guardian level, and, at least in the UK, one has never heard it used in conversation.
