innerathlete saidWoof is pretty bad. I also find things like, "hey, stud" pretty off-putting. "Stud" just sounds so cheesy, like we're in a bad 80's movie version of what someone *thinks* male-to-male courtship looks like.
Yeah, stud is pretty bad. Whenever I hear the word stud it calls to mind a cheesy guy with a mullet and a mustache.
calibro saidIf it works for Lord Flashheart then it works for me... p.s., chimpanzees don't ululate, animals like dogs and wolves do.
Yeah I realized that after I posted it. I was thinking of the ululation of African tribes and monkeys popped into my head and the metaphor got all wonky. Apologies.
jarhead5536 saidThis is a term I would never use to anyone's face (exception: BBH1 ). When it pops into my head, it is a reaction to a man so drop-dead sexy that words fail me and I am reduced to animal lust...
As someone said, if you don't get it, you don't get it. I can honestly say I've NEVER seen a guy so hot and so amazing that it's reduced me to animal lust.
If I were you I'd probably just get to know the guy and not judge him based on one word....
That's part of my problem though! I'm one of those neurotic people who can't stand bad grammar. So to me, the use of animal noises as a means of communication instantly turns me off. It's right up there with LOLspeak. Wut r u doing 2nite?, while admittedly causing blisters on my fingers simply by typing it, is so redundantly asinine that I have trouble taking anyone who flagrantly abuses the English language in such fashion in a serious manner.
**EDIT** Perfect example right here. My original post said "Oh, but that's part of the problem," instead of "That's the problem though!" Upon further review, because yes I (neurotically) review my posts after submission, I realized that that was a sentence fragment. I hastened to edit out the offending fragment before anyone could see.
