Lost Art of CB Lingo: E-F

Apr 11, 2009
We were going to try to take the weekend off, but the demand for more CB lingo was too much. The requests coming were so fast and furious we had to tell everybody to keep their flaps down and give us a little time to pull together our favorite lingo from starting with the letters E-F. So, grab a forty weight and enjoy.

Starting with E-F, here are some of our favorites:

E

Ears- Receiver / Radio

Eastbound -Vehicle moving in the eastern direction

Eighty-eight’s around the house – Good luck and best wishes to you and yours

Eyeball’s -Headlights

Everybody must be walking the dog- All channels are busy.

Evil Knievel -Motorcycle cop

F

Fake brake- Driver with his foot on the brake

Fat load- Overweight truck load

Feed The Bears -Paying a speeding fine or ticket

Flaps down -Slow down

Flop box -Motel, or room in truck stop

Forty weight -Coffee (sometimes Beer)

Forty fours – Childern; kisses

Full of vitamins – Running full bore

Check back with us next week as we keep rolling down the alphabet highway, or you can get a dictionary full of terms from the book, Woody’s World of CB.

10-4 Rubber Duckie. Hope you don’t have to feed the bears anytime soon.
