Slang words and Meanings from the 1950's

Hello Guys & Dolls!!

I found these nifty websites where they have created a list of slang words popular in the 50's.
Fifties web
Cave News

Do you know what these words mean?

Bust Your Conk




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?
