Sorry if this is the wrong forum for this, but cut a newbie some slack, why dontcha!<br><br>Frank gave us some great new words that have oozed right into my everyday language. Words like, "pluking".... LOL who ever thought one would need such a word on a regular basis....but you'd be surprised! <br><br>Also "poot" ...ok I know Frank didn't invent this word, but it's such a descriptive word that I find myself using quite often...sometimes even in conjunction with "pluking". It's also just fun to say....poot......poot...try it... poot. see?<br><br>"Yowza" is also a good one. It's great for those times that you'd like to yell "holy sloppy pig fuckin shit!" but you're around children, so you just yell "Yowza".... good stuff.<br><br>Anyone else using any Zappanese in their everyday lives?<br><br>

i often say plook (which Zappa didn't make up), and yowza' (which i don't think Zappa made up (it's a disco thing)).

"Plook" was coined/invented/whatever by Ike Willis. Frank credits him on the cover of "Joe's Garage". I think "yowza" has been around for at least 150 years, if not longer. It could've just been that Frank was one of the first people to try and spell it. ;D

Quote:
What would prove to be Prentice Moreland's only Cadets/Jacks recording session provided the group with a catch phrase of their own; he delivered the line "Great googly-moogly, let me outta here", on "Stranded in the Jungle"; it was a line he had picked up from a Cincinnati DJ.
