fucky: adj.
slightly less harsh way of saying 'fucked-up.' used to express mild annoyance.
e.g. "The trains were all fucky this morning, but I managed to get to work okay anyway."
blant- derived from "blunt" and "slanted". Most often used to describe one who is painfully pig-headed and abrasive. Their opinion is slanted, they lack tact, and are incredibly blunt in debate and even everyday discussion. ex. "Bob is so blant that everytime he opens his mouth, I get the urge to punch him in the neck."
bjork: v. (derived from the Icelandic)
to behave in a strange but endearing fashion.
e.g. "Do you see that boy dancing spastically over there? He's totally's kinda cute."
warmit - I whisper 'warmit' to the slow folk on the sidewalk in the hope that they'll speed up, or at least get out of the way. 'warmit' derives from 'warm it' which comes from 'warm it up Kris.' this is proof that Kris Kross will contibute extensively to the rewriting of the English language.
Poopy - shit. Ex. "Oh, poopy." or "That's poopy."
Looooooooooove - To love someone. But in a stupidly belabored crazy awful way (but also gooey gooey gross funny way). Looooooooooove. You must also wear a face and use a tenor of voice that bespeaks of constipation or something. Because that's very much what it feels like.

From Scott . . .

Flopjack: n., a pancake that refuses to flip over for the longest time, requiring extra effort to unstick it, and resulting in said pancake landing on the floor with a sickly "flop".
givers - the nicer, kinder gentler form of give. Say it with a smile. "Givers me that." Also, past tense: "Who the hell gavers you that sweater? It's mine, you bastard. Givers it back to me. Now."

cabab - Who knows? As in, I have no idea what this word means because it was posted outside of a restaurant and I suppose is intended to imply that they serve kabobs, but venturing guesses when food is concerned has never been wise.

babana- a small banana. Or a baby wrapped in a banana peel. If it's the latter, then I'm scared.
teh - a halfhearted "the." More a gesture of "the." As in "teh boy" or "teh card table." Only use on objects whose feelings wil not be hurt by your decision to put much less effort into their existence than others for whom the proper "the" is reserved.
