*Alternative Spellings: Charlie, Charle
A VERY popular Ghanaian (Pidgin English) expression used in multiple senses (depending on rising/falling intonation):
1. in the same sense as the words "Dude" or "Homie." Synonymous with the American "Jack" or "Joe" as a way of addressing another person directly. Supposedly believed to have originated from the Chicago-based slang "Charlie" (pron. "Chali"), used in the same vein to address someone directly.
2. used with "Oh" as an expression of disappointment, pity, sympathy.
3. used with "Oh" as an expression of agreement with someone else's statement. Used in the same vein as "I know right?" or "Tell me about it."
eg. 1: What's up, chale? / Ahh, charlie, cool things. (<- Ghanaian pidgin for "Nothing much; Life's great; I'm alright.)
eg. 2: Nana isn't doing too great. His girlfriend recently passed away. / Are you serious? Oh charlie, the poor boy.
eg. 3: We're shelving all these books today? All this hard work...just for $8.00 an hour. / Oh charlie. E hard oo. (<- Ghanaian pidgin for "It's a hard or tough life.")
A hot charlie is anything you want it to be. Because of the way it sounds, most people (especially girlfriends) associate it with something sexual (i.e. Dirty Sanchez). Simply ask for a hot charlie, and the other person must determine what his/her definition of it actually is.
Me: Hey, I'm going to ask my girlfriend if she wants to give me a hot charlie tomorrow night after the movies.
Friend: What the crap is a hot charlie?
Me: Oh, I think you know.
Friend: Does it involve an indian burn on the thigh?
Me: It does now.

Charlie the Unicorn is a very popular video that's been spread across the internet over youtube, myspace, newgrounds, and other flash animation websites. In this video, a pink unicorn and a blue unicorn badger a white unicorn named Charlie into going to a location known as Candy Mountain. On the way to Candy Mountain, the pink and blue unicorn get guidance from the magical liopleurodon, which is a dinosaur that speaks an unidentifiable language, which Charlie can't understand. After getting directions from the liopleurodon, the pink and blue unicorns lead Charlie to a bridge, which is "like covered in splinters." After crossing the bridge, Charlie and the other two unicorns arrive at Candy Mountain. Although the pink and blue unicorns beg Charlie to go inside the Candy Mountain cave, he refuses to enter. The two unicorns then get help from the letters C, A, N, D, and Y. Letter Y serenades Charlie with a song about Candy Mountain, while the other four letters dance along to the catchy tune. When the song ends, the letters spontaneously combust. Charlie was persuaded by the dancing letters and his annoying pink and blue friends to go inside the Candy Mountain cave. While entering the cave, Charlie's friends give him a smug goodbye, and he suddenly becomes concerned. Just as he tries to back out, the cave entrance clos...more...

|6.||charlie the unicorn 2|
Charile the Unicorn is the sequal to Charlie the Unicorn, a popular video. In this one, the annoying blue and pink come back pretending to be deep sea divers while floating in the air. They are then sucked into a vortex that opens on Charlie's back. They come back soon after with an amulet around the blue one's neck. After persuasion, they go on a search to find the Banana King and return the amulet. On the way there they find a giant Z and the blue and pink unicorns start speaking spanish. They reach the kingdom of the banana king where a green seal-like creature wearing a Santa-Claus hat, beard and red lips who begins singing "Put a Banana in your ear!" Afterwards it explodes, just like the letters in the original. Charlie even comments, "Of course it burst into flames." It is then found that Charlie is the Banana King. He goes back home to find that he has been robbed again. The vortex opens again on Charlies back, and the blue unicorn makes a funny noise then leaves.
"Look over there! Its a Coral reef!"
"Oh no! Here comes a school of Fugu fish!"
"There's no stopping the vortex, Charlie"
"Charlie! I have the amulet! The amulet Charlie! The magical amulet! Spirals, Spirals! The amulettttt.....!!!"
"Put a banana in your ear!"
"You are the Banana King!"
