Turds of a Feather...

I present to you the following conversation between two store employees at a local office supply place.

Dude One: The turds are totally awesome this year.
Dude Two: Yeah, man. The turds are excellent this year.
Dude One: Better than the turds last year.
Dude Two: You bet.
Dude One: Oh, and when they go hunting, they totally bust through walls and shit.
Dude Two: And they break out those bows and rifles? Kick ass.
Dude One: Yeah. Awesome turds this year

Is "turd" some new street lingo for something I know nothing about? Am I that old and out of touch? Otherwise, WTF?

Try being my age and hearing things like chronic. Had no idea what that was. And how do you talk about it? I smoked some chronic? I had me some chronic? I chroniced some dope? Huh? Oh, and this chat language. Did you know

I've always felt that I was pretty up on today's lingo. But TURD? No, sorry haven't a clue and I don't think I want to know either! LOL

Um, maybe they were actually saying "birds"? I mean, birds could be better this year. But I don't think birds go hunting. And I'm pretty sure they don't "bust through walls and shit" or break out bows and rifles. Hell, I don't know.

I thought I heard all of the street lingo at work from the kids....apparently I've not heard it all!
Could it be chat lingo? I don't understand much of that either....
I must really be over the hill!
*shhh...don't tell beth cuz I'm 31...don't want her to trip on being over the hill...*
Maybe that's what a turd is? An old person?!

No idea myself either - is it possible this is related to some kick-ass computer game?! That's the only explanation I can think of...

I think, maybe, they might have been saying the "BIRDS" ... the Philadelphia Eagles played Monday night football last night and kicked a lot of ass... and they have the best stats right now. And everyone calls them 'The Birds' ... so... I dunno. Maybe?

Or maybe that is their inside nickname for the birds. In any event, must have been interesting to listen to!

LOL. I'm pretty sure it's a game. My son has a game for his gamecube with these things that look like little poopies that go to war.

Maybe it's like the "Meow Game" from the movie Super Toopers. They "play" just to get a reaction out of non-suspecting passersby. The Meow Game is fun, you should try that at your next all day meeting!

LOL, I have no idea, but people up comment have the right ideas. Take one and run with it. :)

Wow. I am old, because I have no idea. The kids these days and their lingo....what can ya do?

Posted by: Heather at November 16, 2004 12:26 PM

It's a game. Like Halo. Only darker and less linear.

Ok, I have no freaking idea either.

If they were talking about (found it through Google) I am terribly afraid for the future.

Posted by: LOUP at November 16, 2004 12:44 PM

I'd go with the football reference. The Philadelphia Eagles beat the Cowboys Monday night.

Posted by: wendy at November 16, 2004 01:43 PM

Ok, wast kinda pokin' around and seein' what folks had to say about it, and I actually went to
I am afraid. Very afraid.
What is this world coming to?!
**Saddest part is I actually went.....**

Posted by: Jade at November 16, 2004 01:55 PM

That's just odd. And tis not an age thing, cuz I'm a youngun and I don't get it. Then again, I'm hopelessly out of touch.

Posted by: Heather at November 16, 2004 02:46 PM

I am SOOO not turd savvy...

If you ever find out, please post the answer. :)

Posted by: Iki at November 16, 2004 03:08 PM

I am completely confused -- so I vote for WTF? Hehe! If you DO happen to find out, I'm dying to know. =D

Posted by: Jennie at November 16, 2004 04:05 PM

That's where comes in handy: :)

Posted by: Sweety at November 16, 2004 04:05 PM

were you in the bathroom at the office supply store?

Posted by: Granola Spice at November 16, 2004 04:19 PM

Man, that's disgusting!!

I had no clue that animation had gone to the Turds! I think LOUP's theory is the correct one. The Turd website shows characters like Turdinator and Lord of the Rims. They look like they could bust through walls, break out rifles and generally tear some sh*t up.

Posted by: Bayou at November 16, 2004 07:42 PM

I believe "turd" is reference to "chicks." Can not stand these "dudes" and the fact that I have been using qoutes so much.

Wait what the hell? Turds going hunting? Am SO confused.

Posted by: Maureen at November 17, 2004 07:43 PM

Could they have been talking about the new south park video game that came out this year? I haven't seen it, but I heard there is a turd gun in it.
