i was standing outside diva's one evening having a quiet cilla when the pricillas drove up.... they got out of their van - one was hilda and the other seemed very nora... they started giving me kak, so i went milly and bella-bashed the nora one on her head!

Art, how would you use these words in sentences? Could I trouble you for examples?

There are plenty of gaylish/gayla words out there. Some will be different to others (depending on what country you're from and which district within that country), but they all relate to the same thing. A few are: Cilla = cigarette, Priscillas = cops, Hilda = ugly/gross, Nora = miff/sullen, Bella = hit/klap/smack.....these are just a few for starters. Like I said, there is a whole dictionary on this out there. Perhaps anyone else can add others to the list?
