Hipster slang

Posted by ESC on October 24, 2002

Watch out World, I have a new reference.

"My solid pigeon, that drape is a killer-diller, an E-flat Dillinger, a bit of a fly thing all on one page - How to compliment a young lady on her new and pretty dress, according to Cab Calloway's Swingformation Bureau." From "Straight from the Fridge, Dad: A Dictionary of Hipster Slang" by Max Décharné (Broadway Books, Random House, New York, 2000).

A Google search turned up the Swingformation Bureau booklet online.
