Default West Coast vs Central vs East Coast Slang/Sayings

This may not be so much differentiated by your geographic location. I was wondering what people say in slang, to greet, or whatever in different towns, coasts, continents.

When I moved to California, I noticed alot of people said/meaning:

Bone out - To leave abruptly, to "bounce," to scamper cause the cops come up (orig, Socal)
Whats up Bro? - pretty self explanitory but I only got this in Socal. (orig Socal)
Boosy - To be FOUL, or to dislike, example: That Ricer car is boosy! (orig. Migs' friends)

So Hondatech, chime in and let me know how you guys talk. Click the image to open in full size.

I guess that is derived from "booty", which means the same thing as described above. or maybe that is just the east coast version.

haha thats great now i can order at McDonalds and taco bell ect. btw i do get out to other areas, i just will not take anyone serious or deal with them if they choose to talk like that. they are putting more effort to make up that stuff then just going ahead and speaking like normal people. ex: muh=my right? youve added another letter, why? if anyone can explane the whole slang thing ill try to listen. since this is a discussion forum.

I seriously do not understand how some people can say 'crunk' and not have people bust out laughing around them.

people from chicago use "hardcore" all the time to describe something, someplace or someone. It's just used for everything.

well, maybe not from "chicago", but from the western suburbs. both of my roomates are from addison, illinois, and all their friends are from Schaumburg, and they all use it. maybe it's just them.

yes it's used in place of *****, people that use it over here just say it to switch up from saying ***** all the time. I say it to tease my girlfriend from the south that comes out nukka when she says *****, and because of various movies that say it that way because it's funny ( i.e. baby boy )
