More Entries, More Pictures, More Juice, More Jive... Hotter Than a Two-Dollar Pistol - This Baby Will Fry Your Wig.

Features thousands of examples of hipster slang drawn from pulp novels, classic noir and exploitation films, blues, country and rock'n'roll lyrics and other related sources from the 1920s to the 1960s.

Straight from the Fridge, Dad lays down the righteous jive, perfect for all hipsters, B-girls, weedheads, moochers, shroud-tailors, bandrats, top studs, gassers, snowbirds, trigger-men, grifters and long-gone daddies.

Much of the slang popularly associated with the hippie generation of the sixties actually dates back before WW2, hijacked in the main from jazz and blues street expressions, mostly relating to drugs, sex and drinking. Why talk when you can beat your chops, why eat when you can line your flue and why snore when you can call some hogs?

You're not drunk - you're just plumb full of stagger-juice and your skin isn't pasty, it's just cafe sunburn. Need a black coffee? That's a shot of java, nix on the moo juice. Containing thousands of examples of hipster slang drawn from pulp novels, classic noir and exploitation films, blues, country and rock'n'roll lyrics and other related sources from the 1920s to the 1960's, Straight From the Fridge, Dad lays down the righteous jive, perfect for all you hipsters, B-girls, weedheads, moochers, shroud-tailors, bandrats, top studs, gassers, snowbirds, trigger-men, grifters and long gone daddies.
