Mine would be something like Yo, or possibly Hey, but probably Yo, I guess I say that a lot, hence that would be my "catch" phrase or catchprase. Seen? I am also known for saying Yes, and No, but those are usually limited when I'm providing anwsers to questions I get asked some by some people (anwsers to questions which require either a Yes or No anwser). I have been known to say Yes without being asked a question however. (however, these instances are very very rare.
Yo!!

I don't know, um...beluga whale perhaps?

Its one of thoes dumb annoying things you say after someone finishes a sentance. Its best used in moderation, though many people will find that it quickly becomes addictive and extremly stupid.

ex.
Person 1: That kid is fat.
Person 2: ..like a whale.

Unfortunately, Person 2 is usually me.

All my friends say that too. It stemmed from "S my D".

My quip is "Oh man, that's so awesome" and "Ah, that's so awesome man"
The above are said in a very nasally voice that's laidback. They stemmed from me making fun of a friend's quip - ironic, huh?

Pretty much any combo of "so awesome" with a "man" in there. I'll have to make a soundclip so you can get the full effect.

I would think that "nasally" and "laid-back" were pretty much mutually exclusive?

I have too many. In no particular order:

- Nifty
- Dandy
- Pimpy
- Whatever floats your boat
- Whatever tickles your pickle
- I suppose
- I reckon
- Sounds like a plan
etc...

One that I've used since freshman year in college is when someone says something like, "This is too high," I'll reply with, "You're too high!" Or if they say, "That's too far," I'll reply with, "You're too far!" Basically, if they say, "This is X," I reply with, "You're too X!"

I've never heard that version. The one I know is "Whatever blows your skirt up."


Mine is "oh boy." I say that a few times a day.

I used to nice nice, a lot. Now I just say nice.

sometimes its fun totally deflate someone when they're telling you a story, and they're really excited, you can reply with a deadpan face and just say:

"weird"

Thats pretty mean.

My brother always uses that one You're a X. I'll say,

Me: "Tommy LaSorda? Thats a dumb game."
Him: "You're a dumb game."

Me: " She-Ra? Thats a stupid show."
Him: "You're a stupid show!"

Not really the most intelligent reply.

Here you go. It's probably funnier for me bc I have a deep voice and I sound ridiculous when I say this.

Oh man, whadeya got there? Oh... oh man, that's so awesome...

The 'voice' originally came from an old roommate named Mitch who would always say 'Awesome' in it's proper context, like 'jaw-dropping.' One time my buddy totalled his car and when he got back home and told everybody, Mitch was like "oh, man... that's awesome man, that's awesome." (In his abnormally nasally voice.) Since that moment the voice has spread like the plague throughout our circle of friends.

edit: The context of the soundclip I posted would be used when sneaking up behind someone while they're eating, peeking over their shoulder, then dropping the line. Try it with caution - it's addicting.
