That's funny!

I once asked a guy to dance that was "maddogging" me.




I have never heard this expression. What does it mean?

'Maddoging' I interperate as being aggressive, and posturing. Bit like a dog will growl and circle before biting.

In Britain I think it would equate to 'giving daggers' or 'starting on' someone.

Could be wrong though, maybe our american friends sniff each others butts before fighting?

no, that would be called 'madleggin', and is found in rural parts of Texas and some parts of DC.

'mad dog' spell it backwards.
it means staring someone down. looking at someone like a goddam mad dog.

can ya dig it...I knew that you could

Humor is a wonderful tool. The problem being those on whom it can be used (ie to avoid the very avoidable) are often too far gone (to their "dark place") to even be reached. If they are too thick, or of a VERY ~different humor~, how DO you reach them I wonder???

What are some of your "front line" word techniques to "disarm" ?

Anybody?

one good bar trick I learned over the years is the technique of insulting yourself, but the people that know you (and the less dumb in the crowd) understand that the insult is intended for the person spoken to.

dumb guy: "hey you bumped into me you a$$!"
you: "sorry man, I always seem to have a hard time navigating around this huge a$$. {point to your own butt}"
dumb guy: {shakes his head and writes you off as a whackjob}

meanwhile your friends are cracking up. 1 face saved. 1 a$$ saved.
