I found these nifty websites where they have created a list of slang words popular in the 50's.
Do you know what these words mean?
Bust Your ConkBread
Don’t have a cow
Rattle your cage
A lot of the words that we use today were popular terms in the 50's!!
Ankle-biter - A child
Are you writing a book? - You're asking too many questions
Cooties - Imaginary infestations of the truly un-cool
Knuckle sandwich - A fist in the face
Nerd - Same as now. Bill Gates without the money.
Souped up - A car modified to go fast
So are you a hep cat?
