Brothers & sisters you are at the birth of a word !
A word that, I hope, will travel far and wide.
A word that has long been needed.
With Melbourne’s Spring Racing Carnival up & running, the human landscape is again packed with a “certain” type of person.
You know to whom I am alluding to.
They pack the racecourses, they put away the booze, they have a bit of a day and then vomit all the way home.
For quite a while the female version of these souls has been known by the unkind term “slapper”.
But what of the blokes ?
Those citizens who stagger around the public enclosure in their grey suits and pointy shoes, struggling to walk upright thanks to a combination of alcohol and the immense weight of product in their hair.
These noble fellows deserve their very own noun.
And I believe that I have come up with that noun.
It is “slude”.
A “slude” is a “dude” to a “slapper”.
Harsh, but fair ?
