My husband has called them lacky bands, he’s from Birmhingham (Brum) UK. See Aussies aren’t the only ones abbreviating :slight_smile:

i’m going off on a tangent, but “Worcestershire sauce” -> Woostershir sauce -> Wooster sauce
actually the japanese word for it is ウスターソース(usutaasoosu) so even they abbreviate sometimes hahaha (or at least take the abbreviated form of a word)

What? They abbreviate all the time. There’s almost nothing that’s not abbreviated.


#87

haha, true!!!

My favourite abbreviation from back in the day when I was in Japan was: チョベリバ (see https://jisho.org/search/choberiba)
And then on researching for this post, I found this site of Japanese slang!
Enjoy!
