This is a brilliant little read, David Schneider explaining five terms in English slang everyone needs to know. Take 5 minutes, it’ll make you giggle….
David: This is used to refer to someone who falls over: “That 90 year old woman fell arse-over-tits, shattering her hip in 16 places and lacerating her face, arms and legs. It was funny”.
You cannot deliberately go arse-over-tits, as in “The Russian gymnast did a double-piked somersault followed by a triple arse-over-tits”, though it can be used of men as well, especially fat lads with moobs.
Me: I’ve had many arse-over-tits experiences. Like the time I went to the club and the song “Barbie Girl” by Aqua came on. I went to dance next to this super hot chick and then slipped on glass. My arse was like so totally over my tits right there? It was crazy. Despite that, I ended up doing her.
Do you believe that, Schneider?
Lie to me and tell me you believe that.
