Hofbrauhaus: Man jailed for stealing a Mass glass!

14 posts in this topic

Maybe stealing glasses is a sport, I've got many of them myself from beer halls and beer gardens all over Munich. But this guy was done for "violent theft". This wasn't just a case of someone being nabbed with a glass in his jacket. It obviously kicked off so it sounds like he deserved what he got.

yeah, heard about this on the radio last week. unfortunately the kid got caught and started a scuffle with the security guard, which led to assault charges.

 

key was quicker as usual. ;)

Hazza has obviously posted this as a warning as what might happen to us if we try and steal glasses from The Arc. :P

...it's also a warning to those people who think it's cool to come over to the other side of the bar and smash glasses

It appears to treat the word "bad" as a noun, with the same meaning as mistake or error, in a slangy way. In the way that "attempt" is a verb, but can also be used as a noun. I am unsure of the etymology, I think it was introduced in a popular movie within the last decade or so.

 

It makes sense really. Bad, Worse, Worst are all adjectives, but we can at least use "Worst" can be used as a noun too, as in "Do your worst".

 

There are other ways of using "bad" as a noun too, such as "We have to accept the good with the bad".

it means:

 

"I did something, and I recognize that I did something bad, but there is nothing that can be done for it now, and there is technically no reason to apologize for that error, so let's just assume that I won't do it again, get over it, and move on with our lives."

 

from urbandictionary.com and is gangsta slang as well as being an update of the phrase, I'm Sorry... And now a Board Game!!!

Also quoting from the Urban Dictionary:

Something very annoying commonly said after one makes a mistake.
I agree with the 'annoying' bit. Grates me everytime I hear this expression. Sorry!

 

And also in the Urban Dictionary:

Misunderstanding of MY BAG, which is commonly proclaimed in the getto card game SPADES when a hand is over bid.

So not only is it annoying but it's also just plain wrong. Not that the Urban dictionary was ever the gospel about what's right and wrong. Or indeed, not that there ever is an absolute right and wrong when it comes to language.
