Land O Goshen is a Southern expression of amazement or frustration. The Land of Goshen is a place referred to two times in the Bible, once as a province of Egypt (in the time of Joseph) and another time as a Canaanite land renamed Goshen in the book of Joshua. After Moses led the Jews out of Egypt (Goshen) and Joshua finally led them into Canann, they named a portion of the Promised Land, Goshen. This may be why the phrase is used as an exclamation of amazement and frustration, as the Land of Goshen was the place of the Israelites bondage, and later a place in the Promised Land.

A derogatory term for a black man. Originated from people overhearing black men (riding on the rear of a garbage truck) yelling "Monback" to the driver - requesting that he reverse the vehicle or "come on back". Probably originated from a racist joke describing three tribes of black people:
The Monback's - These folks are hard working! They work in the Sanitation industry. Standing behind the Garbage truck waving their hands and saying "Mon-Back.
The Motee's - These people have great pride and work very hard. They work in the food service industry. You can recognize them by the towel generally draped over their arm and the pitcher they hold. They walk around endlessly to all of the patrons of their establishment. They can be heard uttering "You want some motee?"
The Doodahs - They Doodah's are the laziest bunch. They have a pair of extra clean work boots that they never put on. The calling card of the Doodahs are the words "Doodah Welfare check come today?"
Man #1: "Did you know there are three tribes of blacks?"
Man #2: "Well, I've heard of two, but what is the third?"
Man #1: "The 'Monback's', they descended from men standing behind the garbage truck yelling, 'Monback, nigga"!

Guy A: Dude, there is a broad staring at you like she wants to cut your head off.
Guy B: Oh man, that chick is a trip. I tapped that once and now she thinks we're married or something.
Guy A: How bad is it? Is she a Bunny Boiler?
Guy B: Yeah, she may be. This one is a psycho hose beast. I don't have any pets, but if I did I'm sure they'd be part of a stew right now.
Guy A: Hell hath no fury like a woman scorned.
When a person driving a car in the far left lane turns a corner and extends to the far most right lane and then quickly shoots back to the left most lane. A turn where a person extends to the far lane and then comes all the way back to the inside lane. A turn where the person far overextends and then cuts it back to the inside lane. A wide arching turn that covers every lane, instead of following the lane you're in throughout the turn.
Could possibly have been coined because of blacks in the early 60's financing Cadillacs and being unable to drive such a big car, necessitating a wide, arching turn at intersections, causing racists to call it a "Nigger Turn".
Guy #1: Holy shit, dude! Did you see that? That guy turned the corner into the far right lane and then cut it back to the far left lane!
Guy #2: That was a major Nigger Turn!
Guy #1: He covered every lane with that turn... biggest Nigger Turn I've ever seen!
Guy #3: That was an Asian guy, not a black guy!
Guy #1: Dude, it doesn't matter what color person is driving the car, if you turn and sweep every lane, that's a Nigger Turn!

Guy A: Um... what is up with this broad who is following you around?
Guy B: Whew, it's my own little stalkette. This bitch is relentless, she won't leave me alone. She calls me at all hours, texts me constantly, I'm going nuts.
Guy A: Dude, why don't you change your number?
Guy B: I HAVE changed my number.... twice! She knows my friends and she sneaks and looks in their cell phones and gets my number.
Guy A: What are you gonna do?
Guy B: Get a second restraining order, I guess.
On the farm, sometimes, weeds will sprout out of cow patties. They are called "shitweeds". The term is also used for a person who is miserably disagreeable, an asshole
or a jerk
, but has a greater depth of meaning. It represents someone who is bad and worthless (like a weed) who was spawned by something equally worthless (like shit). A person who is a "shitweed" is similar to white trash
, a low and base person raised by low and base people.
Man #1: "Did you meet Joan's new boyfriend?"
Man #2: "Yeah, he's a piece of work, isn't he?"
Man #1: "I know him and his family, they are all garbage. The guy is a real shitweed!"
