My first guess was someone got punched in the face. :) I've been wondering what Wor means. I've seen it quite often.

Wor means "our" as in a family member
OUR GEORDIE HAS LOST HIS MARBLE ALONG THE TOILET ROW.

yEARS ago here in geordieland they used to play marbles in the lane along side all the row of outside toilets .

I know it seems trivial when explained in plain terms but we actually have a song about it here lol xxx

I come from the Pine Barrens of southern New Jersey. We had names for things that might be unique to the area.

1- Point (it pertains to a road)
2- sneakbox
3- bull turkey jive
4- off the chain

 
Thank you Wen. :) And I thought learning Spanish was difficult.

Here you go Wen:

A point in the road is commonly called a fork or split, when a road splits in two directions.
A sneakbox is a duck hunting boat.
Bull turkey jive is Bull Crap, a lie.
Off the chain means Real good. Dinner was off the chain. I like your definition better
thumbs up
