That is silly. Several of those terms are still in use.

"All that and a bag of chips"

What?  Was that a regional thing?
 
2020-10-24 11:44:24 PM  
I see a few of those are still regularly used but....whatever
 
2020-10-24 11:52:07 PM  
who tf used the term "Monet?" It seems...frankly it seems little bit too intellectual for 90's teens and young adults.

Also I resent the idea that "hella" was universal. All of us in Southern California knew very well that "hella" was a term only used by those dirty Northern Californians.

I heard it often enough, although it's a ridiculous phrase and IME was only used in an ironic sense and not seriously.

Fartknocker really should be used more in these times, not less.

I don't know that I ever heard 'home skillet,' but I did hear 'home slice'
 
2020-10-25 3:00:42 AM  
In Texas we have used the term 'Open a can of whoop-ass'at least since the 70s

You'll take fart-knocker from my cold, death mouth, subby, you, you fart-knocker.  You person that goes around knocking things over with his farts (or whatever the insult was supposed to mean).

Not only would I use some of these with my 4th grader but I also would use some of the made up ones like "catch you on the flippity-flop."  They seemed to like it.

The only people I know who use that term are indeed from northern California. Just like people from Boston / MA / perhaps other parts of NE use "wicked" as an adjective.

" 'Schwing,' by the way, is '90s slang for excitement, first coined by Mike Myers in his "Wayne's World"Saturday Night Livesketch and movie spin-offs.) "

That's a bit of a boner for TFA's author there

Never used or heard of Monet.  Always used 50 footer, or lob wedge (good from about 80 yards.)

Also never heard "monet". Local terms were "forty-yard fake-out" or "good from far, far from good".
 
2020-10-25 7:52:23 AM  
I don't hear any of those used. Do you people live in Iowa?
 
2020-10-25 7:55:05 AM  
Isn't this the girl from the meme where her boyfriend is looking at another girl?

Oh, and I'm glad some of those phrases are gone, a lot of those were very irritating.

I'm in California, and as far as I know more than half of those are still in use.
 
2020-10-25 8:11:19 AM  
It's obviously an attempt to provoke a "you're wrong"" inducing response and garner more clicks.

Some of the terms, I've only heard on TV, where they wanted to give a character some sort of local flavor, more invented for TV seemingly than anything routinely said... or, maybe just regional, from some other region than mine.

Whatever.

Hmm, I learned hella from a socal girl in 91. It was hella annoying.  I heard cool beans, homeskillet, homeslice, bag of chips, off the chain, wicked, killer, rad, tubular, gnarly, ace among many more stupid ones I've forgotten.  Most of them seem to have arrived in my neck of the woods via mtv.
 
2020-10-25 8:35:14 AM  
Wow a deslidefied link that didn't shiat the bed, Sweet!  Did it finally get over that 'rona infection.

Also in the 90's calling anything that was lame "gay" was a thing.  It didn't have anything to do with homosexuality at least not to me or my friends.

Yeah I don't use that term anymore.

I called my 10 year old that just this past week... because he ran up and farted on me then sprinted away. Gawd Dawmned Fartknocker...

All that and a bag of chips
Home skillet
Monet

You'd hear it often enough in SE Wisconsin, but as I remember it it was one of those sayings that had a gendered component to it -- I heard women use that phrase almost exclusively, men didn't say it nearly as much.

And some of them were only used on TV,
