Here's how UrbanDictionary.com can be used in the work place (this is the actual email that I sent to my customer):
According to UrbanDictionary.com’s word of the day, today’s word is “Naff” (definition is below). I wanted to confirm with you that this is indeed true British slang. Very important topic of conversation… :)This was my Customer's response:
British slang, describes something that is stupid, lame or unpalatable.
That party was naff — they ran out of beer, and the people were way too uptight.
That’s very accurate. It can also be used in the form off ‘naff-off’, when you’d quite like someone to go away :)Moral of the story - UrbanDictionary.com can provide a deeper level of understanding customers and their culture.
Staying on the British topic- Did you hear that John Galliano escaped jail and fines for making "public anti-Semitic and racist remarks?"

The designer apologized and "blamed his behaviour on overwork, the pressures of the fashion industry and a triple addiction to alcohol, Valium and sleeping pills. He said that his racist remarks were completely out of character."
Hmmm... Next time BFlo and I get into an argument, I'll just have to tell him not to blame me, blame it on my "other character" because I was out of my normal one.
Thoughts? We have Freedom of Speech in the US, so his apologies were nice...
