Local lingo

Post by Bruce » Sun May 19, 2019 10:31 am

Not for nothing, but.....

This one seems to have originated somewhere I Boston and spread from there. Its gaining in popularity. I've even heard it I. A few TV shows and movies. I still don't know what it means. It seems to be a meaningless phase that people use just before pointing out something that a smarter person should have noticed.

Hey, Mr. Jones, that's a really nice cabinet you bought there. Real nice. Hey...uh....not for nuttin' but........how you gonna get it through the door?

I was going to write something really funny about a made up expression that I was going to claim was common down here but then I read what I wrote and had severe second thoughts.

I have only heard that used by an Insane Former Bruin who occasionally acts as a Talking Head on subjects puck ball.

Never heard anyone else say it.

He uses it as a place-holder to introduce a thought.

Does not mean what it sounds like.

In the South, it's a way of saying you poor idiot.

If someone in the South says this and you think it sounds like a compliment, well then bless your heart.
