Correct! She’s a dog… Bowler not a nice way to describe a lady but that was the slang


#82

Yes to both @JJF


#83

Yes to tobler :+1:

Bowler 100%. Think it’s the spelling that has them confused? Pronounced boweler.

Probably used more nowadays than ever before!


#85

Yeah that’s the one savio cheers.


#86

Nowadays. Lovely dublinism expression. I’m browned off.

Is there a connection to bowler hats?

Not to sure but according to this site http://www.jackeen.com/jackeen_files/slang/slang.htm#b

Bowler (rhymes with Cow-ler) (n): dog/ugly person

“Mug of scald”.

The Da’s most frequently used expression.


#98

What was the Gushie again?

Have a vague recollection of of marbles from the 80’s and a big marble was called a ‘scungie’ or something like that? Anyone else remember that?


#99

Big marble was a gullier.


#100

few beers and your ‘gee eyed’

‘thundering c.unt’ to describe some unpleaseant ladies is a nice one to use also

yep, one of the times it was repeated was during the den. after one episode zig and zag started complaining that it was too serious and they were kids and wanted kids shows. it didnt last much longer after that, but it was interesting how two muppets gave an insight into the workings of RTE.

a bit like the sunday game.
