I was instantly hooked by this T-shirt, on the train journey back from Izu where I and SY recently went to get sun-burned. This guy was chilling in the most lackadaisical manner, almost as if he knew I was trying to get a shot of his back. Wow, that is cool. Look at his back, what a great message. I cannot count the times I have WANTED to put the shout from a soul on heavy voice, and to send, but because I didn’t know how to do it, I couldn’t.
That’s a little bit like when Abraham Lincoln used to write angry letters to his general Grant, but then put them in a drawer and never sent them.
To find out how to truly put the shout on, I resorted to the poor man’s Websters- the Urban Dictionary.
A search for Put The Shout On reveals the following results:
|1.||put on shout||7 up, 1 down|
To call someone out, or talk about someone behind their back.
Yeah I know what that bitch been talking about me. She straight put me on shout!
|2.||Put a Donk on it||37 up, 54 down|
JUST PUT A DONK ON IT!!!
From a song called Put a Donk on it
lyrics are as followed:
Yeah, yeah it’s sick that, yeah that’s good.
Baseline! (Ahh wicked!)
|3.||shout at your shoes||10 up, 1 down|
A euphemism for throwing up on the floor, or just vomiting in general.
“Carl’s outside shouting at his shoes. I knew that last drink would put him over the edge.”
My favorite transliteration would be ‘put a donk on’, but I’m not really sure what that means either, so I guess I’ll just have to follow Lincoln’s example and bottle it up in a soul.
