Lost Without Translation

A little conversation with a cousin a few months back...

Fares, "Have you seen the new James Bond movie?"

Cousin, "Yes, it was sick, very sick"

Fares, "Really, I heard it was good..."

Cousin, "Yea you should watch it, very sick"

Fares, "?????"

Cousin, "OK you don't get my lingo, what I mean by sick is that it wasn't sick like you shouldn't watch it, no it was sick like it was bad, baaaaad, very baaaad, ill man, it was ill, and f----ing awesome"
