--- the only trousers a hippy
will ever wear. the only trousers for trendies
and hippies in the '70s, but went out of style except for hippies who still wear them, and believe they will eventually come back in fashion. This is like the Second Coming for hippies. Flares eventually got even wider and became LOONS
, before disappearing from the real world.
FLARES were often converted from normal jeans by adding pieces of old curtains until they looked like jeans with inverted lampshades attached.
"like man, flares will come back one day"
"look at the 70's throwback - flared trousers, flared shirt, flared hair and flared head."
a person from the North of England who comes to London
and , having never seen tall buildings, streetlights and such before, stands and GAWPS
(staring with the mouth open). He may also exclaim "Eeeh!" and suchlike.
"ere Bert look at them Gawpies
gaping at the tower blocks"
The Houses of Parliament were surrounded by crowds of GAWPIES
on a coach trip.
a person who lives in a very damp council house with big damp patches everywhere. This is often caused by them never opening any windows, but of course they think it must be the Council's fault.. They sometimes appear on TV programmes and newspaper articles, looking vacant and pointing at the patches. They think it makes them ill , but that is probably due to their 60 a day smoking, cheap booze and drugs plus a dirt of Pringles and pies.
Look at them over there, Dampies they are , they've gon to the Housing to moan about the damp.
Dampies - "look at them damp patches! the council ought to do something. Its bad for the kids"
Looning - the way HIPPIES
wander about in an aimless way, talking hippie nonsense and making strange movements and poses. Also is related to LOONS, the very wide bottomed flares hippies still wear even now. also related to LUNATIC
, as they appear demented to humans.
"Hey man , do you feel like going out Looning? "
"Look at those hippies! they're really looning!"
