      Sure mate but I wanna come up with something surprising :P

      I used to say "(someone) is boss" all the time, I never knew it was scouse before this thread, it was natural to me cause I basically learnt to speak English in Liverpool forums :D

      Is right fella.

      An there's plenty of Scouse words you can start using, some that may not be familiar on here. The more Scouse in the world, the better.

      You can try picking up a bit of Scouse while you're at it mate. ;)
      Just make sure the Scouse you want to pick up does not weigh too much.

      Aye. :o

      Try the Aintree 2010 thread. You'll be able to differentiate between a good Scouse catch and a bad Scouse catch in there. :D

      Loving the Scouse spread across the forum though. A world full of Scousers is, well, a better world. :D

      F***ing hell this thread took some finding!

      Only throwing it back up there cos I've just used the word "yonks" in another thread. That's a word I don't think I've heard anywhere but Liverpool.

      To be honest, I have picked up quite a few scouse words from the forum. Love the scouse accent, one of the best.

      I use boss quite a bit in my Midwest American accent. I also use a few English words (mate, lad, up the Reds)

      The best scouse I ever picked up was my wife in the Locarno all those years ago.  :)Just in case she reads this she is still a cracker.

      Ah... but who can claim to have tasted the best bowl of scouse?
      or what is your ultimate recipe?

      The aroma of it in our house slow cooking on the stove was devine  :P

      Shoulder of Lamb me mother used to use and it would last all week. ;D

      I think everyone is entitled to claim their Mother made the best scouse and the only way to cook it was by slow cooking.

      Cook it the day before then re-heat it.

      Agreed on slow cooking it though.

      A shoulder of Lamb? Posh get!!  ;)

      I've not lived in Liverpool for years and have moved around some places which have strong accents, Glasgow and Manchester to name just a couple. Also I have been working around Geordies for the last 20 odd years so I have a very hybrid accent.

      That said, when I am around other Scousers or after a few bevvies it comes out more.

      Which is boss tha'!

      When we lived in Walton Billy many moons ago when I was a kid there were loads of Aunties, Uncles and cousins living nearby, we used to visit and always scouse was on the menu. As soon as the identity of the aunty, uncle or cousin to be visited was announced the type of scouse on the menu was contemplated and relished or not.
      Would it be the real McCoy with loadsa meat and lashings of HP sauce or would it be Lob Scouse, the variety of the dish were any item of sustenance is lobbed in or Blind Scouse, devoid of meat with loads of spuds?
      The fortune or not of the family could be gauged in the robustness of the scouse, if your arl fella had a week's work it was beef in the scouse and everything was boss jolly, the other end of the scale was the dreaded blind scouse weekend.

      The the thing that shows through in this thread stuey is we all have a lot to thank our Mothers for.How they managed during and after the 2nd world war to feed us with the rationing is beyond belief.
