    When I don't seem to understand the new 'lingo,' 'slang' and any other terminology that younger people use, I am sure to consult this wonderful (and humorous) "reference" guide...

    Aaron Peckham is the founder of UrbanDictionary.com, and this book is his first compilation of the best of the best user-submitted words to join the site’s database. As such, it’s basically a physical dictionary for street slang, although it’s already kind of out of date.It’s fun, just like the website is – I wouldn’t say that the words included here are actually the best of the best, but the author has at least weeded out most of the rubbish ones, even if he’s not really the author because all of the submissions were crowdsourced from the community.Imagine, if you will, somebody hitting a big ‘random‘ button a couple of thousand times, logging all of the results that came up, and then alphabetising them and putting them into book form. That’s basically what we have here, and I’m not saying that that’s a bad thing. After all, isn’t a regular dictionary pretty much the same thing?So yeah, buy this if you fancy a bit of a laugh and you’ve used the site before, or if you grew up using it like I did. Who knows? If you’re a regular user, you might even see your own definition in there. But the chances of that are pretty slim, seeing as there are so many words on the site and this book was published in 2005, so you’d need a historical entry to make the roster.Still, it’s worth owning, if only to show to your (geeky) friends. For a bit of extra fun, claim that the book came out before the website and see if they buy it. And if you enjoy reading and flicking through it, then who knows? Perhaps you’ll even buy the sequel – I know I did! No idea if there was a third book though, I kind of lost interest after that. The gimmick only works for so long, and for different lengths of time for different people. Good luck, folks.

    While the website (handy as it is) manages to get deeper into various meanings and etymologies of the words and phrases now cropping up, this book is a handy reference tool for the times when searching through the entirety of the website is simply too daunting. Condensed and edited for ease of use, it is a companion of sorts to Roger's Profanisaurus - a guide to modern language which doesn't take itself, or it's subject too seriously, and any criticism of the content can be easily countered by the fact that the contents are being used by people across the globe. Without something such as this, to guide us through the seemingly obscure and idiosyncratic terminology of the modern vernacular, how else would we comprehend some of the social commentary being created?It's not for everyone, and there are parts of the book which made me squirm whilst reading, but I'm taking that as a good sign. If I wasn't challenged by the contents in some way (or horrified that some particularly insensitive jokes were made) then I doubt that I would have given it three stars. As it is, I have only referred to this a few times for clarification of a term. As language slowly changes these kinds of titles will become as indispensable as regular dictionaries, though at the moment the uses of such a book are primarily limited to the internet and pop-culture.

    Pretty amusing for a while. I made it through "D", which oddly is 1/4 of the book. Why are entries for A-D (15% of the alphabet in letters) 25% of this book? I bet it's front-loaded, where synonyms are only listed once and for the word first in alphabetical order. After reading through 4 letters of entries, the white suburban ghetto lingo from a decade ago isn't funny anymore and is becoming irritating. Although I do enjoy the references to newfangled web sites like LiveJournal and MySpace. I need a new bathroom book. Any recommendations?

    Most of the slang in this book is NSFW, but I've got mad street cred now that I've finished it. Word.

    Shibby; shiny; off the heezy! Gives definitions for common slang , such as "do the math", "BYOB", "24/7", "catch-22", as well as some up-and-coming street slang. See urbandictionary.com
