|1.||close, but no bananas|
a variation of the more familiar, 'close, but no cigar.'
the little known phrase spawned from a conversation between a group of intellects in a small neighborhood bar on a weeknight. however, its true origin would be the confused mind of Meredith.
traditionally a phrase used by competing golfers. the new variation has yet to be clearly defined, but is assumed to be condescending.
Guy: Wait, isn't this song a Rolling Stones cover?
Girl: Um close, but no bananas
hollaback girl - A girl who fights back with her mouth in response to a dude who picked a fight in the first place with the dude's own mouth. A verbal fight of sorts.
Ain't no hollaback girl - a girl who ends fights with her fists in response to a dude who picked a fight in the first place with the dude's own mouth.
My next-door neighbor is a loud mouth, but I ain't no hollaback girl.
In Hollaback Girl, Gwen fights back against a shit-talking dude. She's not responded before to verbal attacks, "been around that track," but not anymore - "so it's not just gonna happen like that." Now she's fighting back.
"Put your pom poms down" - close your open mouth.
I think Gwen also means "shit" both figuratively and literally - the dude is bananas, crazy, for talking shit, but, well, bananas are shaped like what?
This shit is bananas
The chorus and repetition and drums are like a war song chant, with the warrior girls in the car and the troops on the ground heading to the battleground to deal with the shit-talking dude. I kept waiting to see the dude at the end of the music video, and was disappointed he/she didn't turn up. Anyhow I think that the dude probably lives next door to me.
When a chick deepthroat's so far that she appears to have a very pronounced adam's apple. This is in reference to the idea that if you eat a banana whole or in large chunks, it can be seen moving through the skin on your neck.
When occurring homosexually, this would be reffered to as a "double apple."
Not to be confused with Adam's Banana.
Guy One: Man, that chick has like, no gag reflex.
Guy Two: Explain.
Guy One: I went so far in she had a banadam's apple.
example 2 (homosexual)
Guy: Jesus Christ man, I know we're roommates, but could you please lock, or at least close your door before you give your friend a double apple!?
The Mafia, also referred to in Italian as La Cosa Nostra (variously translated as This Thing Of Ours or Our Thing), is the name for a secret, criminal organisation which evolved in mid 19th century Sicily, and led to an offshoot on the East-Coast of the United States emerging during the late 19th century with the waves of Italian immigration to that country. As opposed to the insular Sicilian Mafia, during the 20th century the American Mafia became more accomodating of Neapolitan criminals, and other Southern Italians among the sworn-in membership of 'made-men', and forged closer associations with gangsters of other nationalities, thus becoming distinct from the original organisation in Sicily.more...
The term "Mafia" describes a specific secret society in Sicily and their descendants in the USA, yet the word itself has no pin-pointed historical birthplace. In the original Palermo dialect the word 'mafioso' once meant 'beautiful', 'bold' or 'self-confident'. Anyone who was worthy of being described as a mafioso therefore had a certain something, an intangible attribute called 'mafia'. 'Cool' is about the closest modern English equivalent; a mafioso was someone who fancied himself. In fact it was the early Italian government which attached specific criminal connotations to the word and turned it into a subject of national debate.
