An interesting post over at Derryl Murphy’s blog asking about a Prince Georgian usage he’s started hearing:
When the boys, or for that matter any kid here in town, wants to lay claim to something, they quickly shout out “I shoddy the last ginger ale!” or whatever it is they want to get.
Of course, a search of definitions comes up with the usual, and nothing else. … And so I find myself wondering, is this a spontaneous creation, or has it arisen from somewhere else and are others seeing it as well?
So: anybody know anything? Derryl adds that “as best as I recall, this only came up over the past 6-12 months.”
