Can be represented by the emoticon (yn); apparently this pictorially resembles crossed fingers ...
1) fingers crossed for your driving test!

From euphemism and youth.

A subtle expression of disbelief at someone being totally blind to the self-delusion in what they've just said.

Echoes the sound of "That's OK then", and is usually used ironically.

It's not homophobic, but is a response to people saying things like "I slapped DeepHeat (Ralgex, Wintergreen, ...) on my mate's wedding tackle. It wasn't gay because it was in the showers after football practice".

See, eg, Flap Jacks for further examples.
A: I just ran someone over in the street, but it doesn't matter because they were already in a wheelchair.
B: Well, that's not gay then.

Politician: Military deaths in Afghanistan/iRaq have reached X, but civilian deaths don't count.
Political commentator: That's not gay then.

A: I 69'ed my mate yesterday, but it wasn't gay because we both spat it out.
B: Actually that was a bit gay of you. Nearly as gay as a treeful of parrots. You couldn't get much more gay without donning a backless gimp suit and chaining yourself to a lamp-post outside a gay nightclub in Gayton at closing time.

A: I gimp-suited up and handcuffed myself to a lamp-post, but it wasn't gay because I was drunk, and anyway I had my fingers crossed at the time.
B: 'Nuff sed.

1) Very wrong.

2) Right (rare usage)
1) "... It's a privilege to have people listen to your views, and if people get them arse backwards sometimes, that's the price you have to pay ..." -- Alexei Sayle, comedian, satirist and Young Ones co-star, after apparently dissing his home city.

2) Bill: I put my trousers on arse-backwards today.
Ben: Well done. That's correct.

A Facebook-inspired kiddy-fad which contributes to the slow drowning in dross of the Interweb.
Have you been on UrbanDictionary since the dam' Social Networkers started a fad for inventing a "definition" of your own/your "special" friend's/your ex's name?
It's been completely Facefooked! It's like UD was porked in the eyesocket by a wildebeeste. With AIDS.

Buy a Buns-up mug!
Portmanteau word formed from Braggadocio (a braggart in Spenser's Faerie Queene) and cock.

1 Boasting implausibly about one's own (or one's boyfriend's) virile member.

2 By extension, any entry on a social networking site where the writer attempts to kiss his own starfish in an endless cycle of self-aggrandisement.
1) I see you've put a mock 'definition' of your own name on Urbandictionary. "{insert name here} - a boy with a sunny nature and an 18 inch wang". That's a real piece of braggacockio.

2) Oh dear, I've just been rejected by yet another female 'cause I'm hung like a dormouse. I'd best go online and indulge in some braggacockio to cheer myself up.
