i need help defining these slang words from th 1920s. These were the ones I coulnt find.
-all my whiskers -lickey split
-blind dragon -park
There are some great sites here:
lickety split = quickly; right away
a white cow is a vanila milk shake
(a black cow is a Coke float)
carhops waited on people in their cars at drive-in fast food restaurants. Your food was served on a tray that hung on the open car window.
A motorcycle called a chopper until after WWII. In the twenties, it was a name for the Thompson submachine gun, or "tommy gun".
I left out "wasn't" after motorcycle and misspelled "vanilla"
