... you have the following conversation with a teenager:

Me: Hey.
Kid: Hey, umm is this your car?
Me: Yep.
Kid: Lotus Elise, right?
Me: Yeah, it's a first year car... 2005.
Kid: Man, this thing is dirty.
Me: Yeah I know, it has sh*t all over it; I'll wash it eventually.
Kid: No umm dirty means like, awesome.
Me: :huh: Oh.
Kid: Can I watch you drive off?
Me: Yeah if you want.

This is the first time I've been made to feel totally over the hill by a kid. :eek:

Geez, I must be old, too.... if someone tell me my car's dirty, I'd think I need to wash it. :)

(by the way, I'm 28)

The word "dirty" used anywhere near you has nothing to do with actual dirt.

Can one be a "dirty old man" at a meager 28 years?

When I first had my Porsche Turbo (1995), I was backing into the parking garage in downtown NYC (to avoid scraping the exhaust on the driveway)... and I had to wait for two twenty-somethings to pass behind me. One said to the other: "Yo, dat thing is Phat!"... I thought they were commenting on the width of the widebody... :shrug:

You old warts need to get with the times! Dirty = Ill, sick, frickin sweet, etc yo.
Listen to 'Ridin Dirty' by Chamillionaire, that'll get you into what "These young whippersnappers" are talking about :rolleyes:

I don't know how many Klingons have been killed in the original Star Trek though, so most of you probably have me there...

You put em there in the first place. rotfl
Jk, but I'm saying people who don't know the secondary meaning of "dirty" probably know a lot about other cool stuff, like Star Trek with William Shatner, and I respect that. That's all. -poke-
