FIGMOS- Stands for "Finally I got my own sto' (store)"
In the 80s, Buffalo, NY a black owner opened a
supermarket in a closed supermarket in the middle of the ghetto. He called it "FIGMOS PTL" (Finally I Got My Owwwn Sto'. Praise the Lord!). Supposedly, gospel music, and never anything else, played over the store's speakers.
It is remembered for its hilarious commercial jingles, that always ended "Figmos, Praise da Lord!".
Yo shorty, I'm goin down to Figmos, get me some pig's feet. One.
Starting around 1990, roughly concurrent with the release of Spike Lee's seminal motion picture "MALCOLM X" and the dizzying successes of rap music stars, a t-shirt slogan started to appear which said; IT'S A BLACK THANG, Y'ALL, YOU WOULDN'T UNDERSTAND.
The word "thang", used in this context, was an Ebonicism used to refer specifically to a cultural meme or norm, which those who belonged to the special group-- in this case, African-Americans, would immediately recognize and understand... whilst those not belonging to this group (whites or non-blacks) would fail to understand, appreciate, or even recognize.
Thus, by extension, a "thang" is a folkway, meme, norm, predilection, code, shibboleth, artifact or behaviour exclusive to, or closely allied with, a particular sub-group of the larger populace.
Upon entering a neighborhood bar traditionally frequented by the African-American community:
White wannabe-rapper: "Yo, what is up widdis? One jar at the end of the bar filled with pickled eggs and another one filled with pickled pig's feet? Yo, dass nasty!""
His Black buddy: "Man, it's a Black thang, you wouldn't understand."
Or, during a moment of treasured understanding:
Straight guy: "Would you mind please telling me what IS it with you gays and Barbra Streisand?
Gay guy: "Oh, I guess it's a Queer thang, you wouldn't understand."
Or, at a typical American High school:
High School Teacher A: "One of my students actually has a tattoo of a tiny black teardrop under his left eye! It's kinda creepy... What is THAT all about??"
High School Teacher B: "Yeah, well that's a Latino gang-banger thang. Supposedly it means they've offed someone."
In today's fast paced world, every minute counts. Fast food restaurants have got the practice of fast food sales down to a science. However, as with any industry, when human interaction is necessary, there is room for error. McTrust occurs when you patronize a fast food establishment, and you receive you order without checking to see if it is correct. This is the exact moment of McTrust. As you pull off from the drive-thru window, you gamble the few precious seconds that checking your order before you leave allows you. This small moment is the difference in getting where you are going just a little quicker if the level of McTrust is high at that particular restaurant. The McTrust level is earned over a period of time. The higher the level, the more likely your order will be correct. It should be noted that McTrust is easy to lose as well. After one bad experience, you will probably stop to check your order at that particular place for quite some time into the future, if even returning at all. It is almost like a slot machine at a casino, as you reach your destination. You open your bag to the moment of truth: is it right or wrong? Having your order correct is a great feeling. But if you receive something completely wrong, it is then you must decide to eat the crap or return to fix the offending order. If you have to get back in your car and return, then you have wasted precious moments of your life dealing with schmucks who can't correctly place a fast food order in a bag....more...
A racial discriminating slang for Japanese people. Literally means "Pig's Feet"
1. He's a jjokbal nom.
A greasy fast food joint in the town of Wilmington, Massachusetts. The restaurant is one-of-a-kind as it is the only one in the area (maybe even the whole country). It is a favorite among many people residing in nearby towns of Middlesex County, too. The dumpy, steamy windowed, blue-roofed restaurant is an icon of Wilmington, and all residents of the town should be able to define the grease shack when asked "What is Simard's?" Open until 3 a.m. on Friday & Saturday nights, one driving by on one of those nights after midnight can see the drive-thru choked with cars, sometimes even making a horseshoe to the street entrance. 90% of the patrons on Friday & Saturday nights include drunks and stoners with the munchies ordering the menu's most popular, artery-hardening items, such as seasoned fries with cheese, the Nacho Supreme, and roast beef. If the Wilmington Police Department really wanted to catch drivers under the influence, they would simply have to set up a checkpoint 3 feet from the drive-thru window. Many of the customers like to enjoy their purchases across the street in the ghetto Wilmington Plaza parking lot. The eatery probably makes a yearly profit of $50,000,000. This hidden gem is unique to the town, and I encourage you to try it if you haven't. It's definitely worth the embarrassing wait in the drive-thru, as you hope no one you know sees your vehicle as they drive by. The employees at Simard's will kindly wait to take your order as you finish puking ...more...
