10-4 good buddy.

You know what I miss?

CB Radios.

With the advent of the cell phone and good taste, the radio lingo of the 70's and early 80's dies off. I watched Smokey and the Bandit over the weekend and was giggling like a school girl with all of the old trucker talk going on. That Snowman was a funny MOFO! For all of the youthful people out there who don't know what the hell I'm talking about...well that will take too long, so here is a list of CB Slang, start using it again and bring back some fun!

Boy Scouts -The State Police
Local Yokel - Small town cop
Papa Bear - Policeman
Mama Bear - Policewoman.
Bear in the air- Helicopter or other police aircraft
