  Before I share with you the words I found this past week, I just want to also share my thoughts.  Back in the day (lol) when I was in school, I probably wouldn’t have been able to find these words in the dictionary.  It just amazes me that we have so much knowledge at our finger tips with today’s technology.  I WONDER what we will have say in 10 years.

Today my words are a bit different.  They are slang words (which I was eager to look up lol) that are used in Ireland and thereabouts. and they are:
  *bollocks 
–noun

1.(used with a plural verb) Vulgar. ballocks.
2.(used with a singular or plural verb) British Vulgar. rubbish; nonsense; claptrap (often used interjectionally).
  *gobshite
–nounChiefly Irish Slang: Vulgar.

1.a mean and contemptible person, esp. a braggart.
2.a stupid and incompetent person
