said with humour - Parenthetic (and pathetic) excuse found in dictionaries of slang. With such a disclaimer at hand, you have a built-in excuse for your meanness. Sometimes said along these lines: "Not necessarily meant pejoratively, but nearly always perceived that way." That could just as aptly be written this way: "Nearly always meant pejoratively, but not necessarily perceived that way." Heads up: Depending on the goodwill of the targets of your insults may not be the brightest course to take. Attempting to draw favorable attention to yourself by saying mean things about someone else is taking the low road. Trying to make yourself look good by making others look bad may be de rigueur in certain political circles, but it's not to be done in polite society -- or around me. When you say "I was just kidding" or "I was just givin' ya' the piss," you acknowledge that what you said was intended to belittle, demean, embarrass, poke fun at, put down, or otherwise diminish someone else. You know you're being insulting and mean. If you're going to say insulting things about or to others, at least have the balls to own up to acting like a jerk. If you have a real talent for it, you can become an insult comedian and get paid for being an a

e.g., Australian Slang and Translations Yank: person from the USA Septic Tank: person from the USA (said with humour), rhyming word with Yank Seppo: person from the USA (said with humour), play on Septic Tank You could also tag that with "(affectionately)," but it won't make it any more acceptable to me. While it may not be necessary for me to take your use of the term as derogatory, I see the fact that you and I both know what's in septic tanks as sufficient for me to take offense. You say it's just innocent rhyming slang? Well, pal, Sherman Tank rhymes just as well. Given the number of Yanks who died in World War I and World War II, the least you Aussies, Brits, and Kiwis could do is refer to US without using derogatory terms. Hmmm, let's see, what rhymes with Brits? … No, I'm not thinking ghits. I'd prefer to be called a sherman rather than a seppo, thank you very much.

said, ~ - Used when what follows is not quite a direct quotation, but is approximately what was said. Paraphrasing, with no distortion of any sort

e.g., I said, ~ "Sonja's the most recent one to call me 'Sweetie.' I don't like it any better, but I sort of expect strippers in bars to call me 'Sweetie' because they think they might get better tips. However, healthcare professionals such as nurses don't inspire much confidence when they use the term. Besides, I doubt that they'd call me 'Sweetie' if I were a younger man and not a geezer." … I said~, pointing at Melba, "We've been married almost 50 years and she's never called me 'Sweetie.'" Then Melba chimed in, "Sweetie doesn't fit."

salt - Persons, male or female, who happen to interfere with someone else's "picking-up" one of the opposite sex -- the object. They can, but are not limited to, being "salt" if they really suck, or by flat out being a dork (which results in that dorkiness reflecting on you in an unfavorable manner), or they can be tactless and say something stupid that offends the object, or they can perhaps be a friend of a friend of a girlfriend -- which could obviously be detrimental to the game in play.

e.g., I don't want Chris to come with us. He is nothing but salt. | Say your buddy walks up and says something dumb while you are talking to a lady. After he is gone you can point to him, shake your head, and say, "Salt," thereby referring to his salty behavior and calling him salt.
