    stink to high heaven

    Definition: To be disgusting or very low quality.

    Example: 1) That barnyard stinks to high heaven.

    2) Most Sylvester Stallone movies stink to high heaven -- they're just terrible!

    Etymology: If something 'stinks', it smells bad. 'High heaven' refers to the clouds up in the sky. The idea here is that something is so bad, either to the nose or to the mind, that even the angels who live way up in the clouds are offended.

    doc...the picture for the slang was excellent. quite similar to tamizh's "maanam rekka katti parakkudhu". not exactly...but used in the negative sense.

    vijitha, this might sound a lil grouse. the word duff is an american slang for ass.
    I guess now your phrase has a meaning.

    I am sorry if I had typed a bad word in my post. I did not know we should avoid such words. if the moderators can delete my post it would be great.

    May be we can bring some meaning like this " Life sucks when we are worthless/inactive"

    I also have never come across such slang.

    interesting


    have you heard this before:
    "being up the duff" means the same as "having a bun in the oven", basically being pregnant.

    burned out

    Definition: Extremely tired; lacking energy; worn out from working too much.

    Example: 1) I was completely burned out after working on a big project for three weeks straight.

    2) After staring at a computer for 80 hours per week for the last two years, Michael was finally burned out and quit his job.

    Etymology: When you are 'burned out' you have no more fuel to burn. You are without energy, like a candle that has consumed all of its wax.

    Synonyms: wiped out, worn out, pooped

    hit the spot


    Definition: A phrase that means 'that was really good' or 'that was just what I needed'.

    Example: 1) Mmmm - that cup of coffee really hit the spot!

    2) I needed a good laugh, and that slang cartoon really hit the spot.

    Etymology: 'The spot' refers to a need you might have, like hunger. When you get some food, you have addressed or taken care of that need - or 'hit the spot'. The term is usually used for food and drink, but also for other kinds of pleasures, such as entertainment.
