A High School Teacher’s Running List Of Slang Terms Is Going Viral

A high school teacher in Massachusetts is going viral because he keeps a running list of slang terms he hears students use.  Each time he hears a new one he doesn’t know, he adds it to the list, along with a quick definition.

He shared it with his students recently, and one of them posted portions of it online.  Here are some terms from his list.  See how many you know . . .

  • “Clap back” . . . to respond to an insult with an equal or greater insult.
  • “Hop off” . . . another way of saying “mind your own business.”
  • “No cap” . . . “capping” means lying.  So “no cap” means “no lie” or “for real.”
  • “Put someone on” . . . the act of getting someone to embrace a new trend.
  • “Rashing” . . . to make fun of someone.
  • “Smacks” . . . a tasty treat.
  • “Snack” . . . a person who looks good or attractive.
  • “Take the L” . . . as in “take the loss.”  Like if you failed a test or got dumped, someone might say, “take the L” and move on.
