When you ask a kid “hey honey, where is your stomach?” and then he points out to this stomach. Well you end up asking about different body parts, but today we are gonna specifically look at slang terms. Now these slang terms differ from country to country and most of these slang terms are American slang terms, okay? So we gonna start with “dome”. Well dome is a slang word for your head and in fact there’s another slang term for your head which is “noodle”, okay? So these are the two slang terms that you can use for your head, right? Have you heard that before, especially when you watch Hollywood films? Well I’m sure you have and now you know what exactly does this really mean. So dome and noodle is used for head.

Moving on to the next one which is “honker” and then there’s another one which is “beak”. Well do you have friends who have this long nose, long and really sharp nose? You just gonna say, “ah you have a funny nose or you have a long nose.” Well there are better terms that you can use for your friends if they have long nose well we have honker and beak, okay? So these two terms can be particularly used for the people who have long sharp nose, okay? Moving on to the next one which is, “peepers”. Yes I’m talking about your eyes. Well I have peepers and I also have “baby blues”. Well peepers and baby blues are slang terms used for your beautiful eyes however baby blues is particularly used for blue eyes. Ah! I wish I had blue eyes. So papers and baby blues is a slang term for eyes but baby blues is particularly for blue eyes, alright? Moving on to the next one which is, “choppers”.

Moving on to the next one which is “trap”. “Huh shut your trap.” So what exactly trap stands for? Well it is a slang term for your mouth. Now when you say, “shut your trap” that’s pretty rude and you can only use in an informal environment, okay? You can’t really tell your boss to shut your trap okay don’t do that. So trap is an informal word a slang word for mouth, alright? The next one which is it? Well it’s “ticker”. I’m talking about your heart. Okay, so like you know have you heard an old man saying that, “hmm, well the doctor says that my ticker is still very strong.” So which means that his heart is still very strong, beats just perfectly. So ticker is a great slang term used for your beautiful heart, okay? Well these are many slang terms that you can start using in your conversation now let’s move on to some more slang terms related to our body parts. We have “jugs” and “twins”. Well jugs and twins the slang terms used for a woman’s breasts. So generally the word jugs, the slang term jugs is used by the men, “ah, look at her jugs”. Well that’s funny but usually when women talk about their breasts they usually end up using the word twins okay, so jugs and twins is a slang term used for a woman’s breasts. The next one is “guns”. Yeah! Well, guns is a slang term used for muscular arms. Like if you are working out and you have great arms, very strong arms, muscular arms then you can use the slang term guns. “Huh! Well look at the boy, well look at his guns”, okay? That’s kind of scary well because the man has muscular arms so that’s guns for you. The next one that I have is “tummy”. “Oh! My tummy is hurting.” So tummy is a slang term used for stomach. Now there are many children also who end up using the word tummy. So it’s a very common slang term used for when you are talking about your stomach, oh my tummy hurts, okay I’m hungry, so it’s a slang term used for your stomach.

Then we have “pot belly” because your belly starts looking like a pot okay maybe you eat too much, too much of fattening things, too much of junk food and then you have like a big belly so that’s pot belly for you and then I have “muffin top” again when you are trying to wear your pants and there’s this fat that you see around your tummy, looks really funny and if you do have a muffin top you need to start working out at the gym. So it’s beer belly, pot belly and muffin top these are the slang terms that you can use for a fat stomach or a fat tummy, okay? Then you have “belly button”. Well it’s that a kind of button that you need to press? Well not really a belly button is a slang term for your navel, okay? So the little button that’s on your tummy, well that’s called belly button, okay? Then we have “weenie”. Yes weenie is used for penis. Okay a man’s penis.

Now rare end and booty are two slang terms that you can use for your bottom okay, which means when you are talking about someone’s butt, okay? So these are great words that you can use, like for example you are saying, “hey look at that woman’s bottom” well a better word to use “look at a woman’s rare end”, okay?
