The 143 is a brand of bus found in Manchester of the Oxford/Wilmslow Road variety. It is a feared bus as it is cleverly discuised as a 142 bus due to its insistence of being a Magic Bus and thus can easily fool pissed students on their way home from a night in the town at 3 o'clock of the AM variety.

On its way into Manchester the 143 can be caught by anyone and therefore people who wouldn't get the 143 back would get it there. On its way back from Manchester it runs the same route as the 142 bus but only as far as the Palatine Road variety. Then it goes down Palatine at which point people realise they are are on a 143 and can lead many people from the Didsbury division of the Wilmslow Road variety have to catch another bus or walk home.

Nobody knows where the 143 travels to out of Manchester as nobody has ever got the bus for that purpose thus causing a pandemonium outside Job Centre Plus which would look like good evidence against unemployment rates. It is rumoured to be travelling back to the treacherous swamp from wence it was born.
Ahmed: "Is that a 142, lad?"
Swann: "No, it's a 143"
Ahmed: "Damn"

"Ahhh fuck we got on a 143!"

"Shit, it's 5am and there's no buses we might have to actually catch a 143 instead of waiting for the 142"

I Love You. After the "I Love You" lighthouse at Minot's Ledge, about 20 miles SE of Boston Harbor. In 1894 a flashing lantern was installed flashing once-pause-4 times-pause three times-repeat.
Texting "143" to your kids gets a different response every time.

A cool way of saying I love you. The one 1 stands for the one letter "I" the 4 stands for the four lettered "love" and the 3 stands for the three lettered "you"
Sexy Girl:143.

Epic Guy:143 too.

"I Love You"

1 = I
4 = Love
3 = You
I heard this from a ladie when I was sitting uptown one daie with friends. I had never heard of 143 before and she came up telling us a storie that when her and her husband were dating back in the daie they couldnt outwardlie saie I Love You so they came up with this code waie of saieing it, which was 143. It was reallie weird and random that she told us this.. not sure if she actuallie did make it up but prettie weird aniewaies.
