Who says this?

It wrote on here all the time. Is it a southern thing or something?

I first thought it was only people who had poor english but obviously not as I see it all the time :?

not sure, obviously means 'my mistake'

basically, another word for 'My mistake'. I think its more of an apology

*Waits for this thread to turn into an argument over why we should use proper english*

i didn't think we had arguments just healthy debates

2. my bad


(n.) A combination of an apology and a dismissal. Basically, saying "oh yeah, I did that, but I don't care".



3. my bad



A grammatically incorrect way of acknowledging (facetiously) a wrongdoing.
Used very commonly by gangsta-wannabes and other sorts of conforming posers, the terrible grammar tends to drive literate people up the wall in absolute irritation.

Taken from urban dictionary found on google

Maybe Im not gangster :-(

My bad originally came from the term my bag.
This was a term used when playing a game of spades (a common jail house or hood game with cards) In the game you would have to fortell how many "books" or hands you would take. If you went over that number it was called a "bag". If you were playing with a partner, which was mostly common, it is considered a courtesy to claim your mistake by saing "My Bag" or get shot.... : ) your choice... anyway this carried out to the street and stupid beverly hills b*****s misundertood the ghetto term and said "My Bad" and it stuck in mainstream pop culture.

I know it all know. Im a "My bad" expert :thumbsup:

I was about to reply 'My bad gee' (I thought it sounded gangsta!:whistling: )
So I put 'gee' in urban dictionary, it looks like I'm not up to date with my Irish slang. :roll:
Then tryed 'jee' in urban dictionary, not good either lol

Which leaves me with...

YO FUNNITY G

Was going to say, I think it originated in America...when I first heard it I thought it sounded stupid but I say it all the time now, now I am so used to hearing it on the internet and in American TV shows etc.

I think its sounds http://www.elferteam.de/Forums/Smilies/fart3.gif and have got to be honest, am also from the north east, and only ever heard it on here.

My daughter and her peers use it - mainly to wind parents up - apparently they heard it in South Park??

It's an American word, probably filtering through as a few others have

Lets just hope the words http://freeweb.supereva.com/esorciccio2002/smilies/censored.gif filter back to America:thumbsup:

where the heck does this saying come from, is it a tv show or something? it really does my head in when i see it:x

Shakespeare apparently (Sonnet 112):

Your love and pity doth the impression fill
Which vulgar scandal stamp'd upon my brow;
For what care I who calls me well or ill,
So you o'er-green my bad, my good allow?

you weren't expecting that were you , lmao !

Yup - must have started about the same time as the spread of "so fun"

A way of admitting a mistake, and apologizing for that mistake, without actually apologizing.

A combination of an apology and a dismissal. Basically, saying "oh yeah, I did that, but I don't care".
