On the heels of a recent conversation about Southernisms and colloquialisms spurred by my usage of “gullywasher”…
Manfred: I heard something like “gullywarsher” the other day: “Frog strangler.”
Me: Oh yeah? Ha! That must be like a toad choker. Frog strangler, toad choker, gullywasher.
Manfred: I have never heard of any of those.
Me: What are some colloquialisms from where you’re from? I’m sure there are Jersey phrases we don’t use here.
Manfred: I can’t think of any that mean it’s raining. We just say, “It’s FUCKING POURING.”
