Slang Word of the Day

So we feel that it's our duty to "urbanize" White people and not-down Colored folk with the newest, and freshest slang.

Today's word is "No Homo."

"No homo" is a phrase that is often used after someone, inadvertantly or not, says and/or does something that can be viewed as "gay."

For example, Cyle got a haircut on Friday and I said to him, "Ay dog, your haircut looks nice, no homo." Thus nullifying any homosexual undertone.

For whatever reason, in today's society it is viewed as "not cool" or "weird" for a man to compliment his fellow man on his external appearance, or just on anything in general. "No homo" allows us to do this now. This allows me to compliment a fellow man on his appearance and watch "Brokeback Mountain" and "The Crying Game" without feeling "gay."

That being said, I'm gonna go watch "300" and admire Leonidas' abs...no homo.


P.S. We here @ "A Dime & A Nickel" do not discriminate against people regardless of gender, age, sexual orientation, race, religion, quantity of baby's daddies and/or STD's. We celebrate and promote diversity. Please do not be offended, it is not our intention to do so. Heck, we didn't come up with the phrase...
