In Ireland a slang term for a good time or fun or a laugh is 'crack' (can be spelled craic)

[urban]craic[/urban]

A common greeting is 'Well, any crack?'

My cousin went to London for the first time, got into a taxi, said 'Well, any crack?' The taxi driver through him out shouting; 'Do I look like a drug dealer to you?'  He got the bus. /lol

hahahaha, interesting! I especially like 'nicht' because its hilarious how a word that literally means cousin/niece can be used as an insult towards someone.

alright - hello, how are you? all rolled into one simple, gruntable vowel
butters - bad
long one - bad situation
allow it - 'I do not mind this happening', usually said without the a ('llow it)
ban it/that - 'I don't like the sound of that'
bare - plenty/lots
wah gwan - how's it going?
proper - very
sound/mega - good, cool, okay
bairn - baby, child

these are just the ones I know are slang, that I hear off people from my London housemates, or builders from up north. http://www.peevish.co.uk/slang/index.htm gives you pretty much everything else
My cousin went to London for the first time, got into a taxi, said 'Well, any crack?' The taxi driver through him out shouting; 'Do I look like a drug dealer to you?'  He got the bus.
if he'd said that anywhere outside of the taxi, he'd have been able to compare prices...

Heck, no.  I just hear them from high school kids and gayspeakers. They're annoying, to tell you the truth especially gayspeaking. It's as if you're deciphering Rosetta Stone. Almost every slang word are a mix of Tagalog and English, Chinese. But some are funny, like AIDS (Acquired Insanity Due to Studies) or Statue of Liberty, meaning free.

My Grandfather still occasionally talks in cockney rhyming slang:

"Pass the dog"
"what?"
"phone"
"what!?"
"dog and bone - phone"
Far out in the uncharted back-waters of space - at the unfashionable end of the western spiral arm of the galaxy - lies a small, unregarded yellow sun...

Aligh- usually used when agreement withsome ie or when you want to make a point (be aware that i probley spelt this wrong -_-)

Freashy- oftenly used towards foriegners who uses a lot of phrases that would be assosiated with america or an foriener that trys to act cool. This is usually uses towards asians or africans.

Yardy - somebody who is ghetto or loud and jamican

Set pace- have a fight

Butters- ugly/grim

Peng- nice or used on somebody who is good looking

I could go on for ages with this. London slang is ridiculous.

The only regional slang word I know of isn't even really slang, it's wicked which is used as an adjective for just about everything. Where as in the rest of the world wicked means evil or something in new England it's used to sort of bolster just HOW bad or good something is/was. For example, "It's wicked cold out"  or "That thing is wicked cool man!"

I don't really say it anymore as I've noticed that it tends to annoy people from other parts of the country, they at least point it out. But I grew up saying it all the time.

Apparently I'm a little behind on the slang of todays youth...I was talking to this guy Gary the other night and he was like "yeah there were a lot of (????) there" I don't know what he said so I just smiled and nodded. He must of realized I had no idea what he was saying because he said "You know like hot girls" No, I apparently don't know. And he's only about five years younger than me I think. That stuff changes all the time.
