ankle - to walk
berries - similar to bees knees
coffin varnish - bootlegged liquor
dewdropper- a man who sleeps all day
indian hop - marijuana
pull a daniel boone- vomit
punch the bag- small talk
century- 100 dollar bill
dip the bill- drink
gooseberry lay- stealing clothes from a clothesline
Now let's see if I can use them all in a short paragraph.
The other day billy ankled up to me, that dewdropper had been dipping his bill in a centuries worth of coffin varnish and looked like he had done a gooseberry lay! I tried to punch the bag but all that came out of his mouth was applesauce! He laid some indian hop on me and pulled a daniel boone. He thought it was the berries!
