Pp


(to be) Pissy – (adjective) This is a slang term which is used to describe a person when he or she is in the kind of mood where-in that person is able to complain about absolutely everything, and he or she has nothing good to say about anything…  The ironic thing about being pissy or by being in a pissy mood is that the person is so difficult to be around that eventually he or she will begin to annoy him/herself 😀


Plan-B – (noun) This is a slang term to refer to a second plan, contingency plan, back-up plan – another plan for doing something in case the original plan doesn’t work, or if some variable arises which cause one to have to make changes…  “Well, I decided that I was going to be a rock-star when I was very young but, when I realized that I would have to sell my soul to do that, I came up with a Plan-B; to completely reform the way the English language is taught and learned and eventually get people to stop calling it English.”


(a) Poser – (noun) This is a derogatory slang term that is used to describe a person who does everything he or she can to make people think that they are a certain way, even though they aren’t.  The hip-hop artists who are wearing gold and diamonds in their videos drinking expensive champagne in front of even more expensive cars and throwing money away to beautiful women are a perfect examples of posers.  This is because, in reality, they sill live in a normal apartment, they had to rent the jewelry for the video, they don’t even like (or know anything about) champagne, they could never afford those kinds of cars, and the women in the video are paid models who are only in the video to help pay for their medical or law school and would never associate with those types of people in the “real” life.  –  (This term comes from the verb “to pose”, as in, “pose for the camera.”)
