A 'high shoulder' would always trump a 'colly-buckie' as it was dedidely more precarious and required superior strength.

Tic tac was when the 2 team captains stood opposite eachother (distance apart to be decided) and alternated turns to walk towards eachother one step at a time (heel of front foot touching front of rear foot) until one persons foot was on top of the others. They were deemed winner and had 1st pick for their team.

"Chinny chin chin" I believe was the required phrase, around my bit anyway.

Right, so if a lampost was someone lying down to get an unfair advantage (which makes sense now I think about it) what the hell was the "jump from miles away" move called - I'm sure it had a name, and was similarly outlawed whilst partaking in the hallowed art of Tic-Tac-Toe.

It was 'itchy chin' for us.

In Tic-tac, for us, lamppost was just someone taking a massive step. We had a tiny one as well where you pretty much only put your toes down and the rest of your foot lay on the foot already down.

Reminded as I was of my own tragic angst-ridden teenage escapades wi lassies by the phrase to 'bag-off', the word 'nash' came to mind meaning to snog (usually the aim of a bag-off) but also it means to run fast as in 'we better nash, thats the polis coming'

As an aside, another hapless laddie in my class was offered a 'bag-off' wi a big huge fat lassie in Holyrood Park.
His perplexed reply (and this is true): "a bag of what?"

What about doing Endoes on your bike ?

Pulling the front brake hard and keeping the back wheel up for a few seconds.
Cool folk could do front hops:greengrin


Maybe not a phrase but what about the jubilee carton stuck in you bike wheel for the motorbike effect ?:cool2:

More of a phase but did anyone own a Trick Stick , Batty Bouncer or Yo Ball ?:greengrin

Yo Balls were sound:agree: Mines was yellow:thumbsup:

Nash is another one I've not heard in ages .

For some reason, the word "nixy" was en vogue amongst the cool kids at school - we're talking S2/S3 age - to mean "no/no chance".

I.e. "I got a ****load of homework for tomorrow. Nixy will that be getting done"

Or even funnier, after a dressing down in front of the class, the "victim" (if a cool kid) would walk back to their seat, audibly muttering (preferably in a rising pitch of voice) "Niiiixxxyyyyy" - what a struggle it was to keep a straight face :agree: :faf:
