The Top 10 Most Sarcastic Flapper Slang Words


Everybody enjoys a little slang. Especially when it comes from a time period like the ’20s. Glamordaze feeds this enjoyment with sarcastic flapper slang. A potato isn’t a “starchy, tuberous crop” like we know it, but instead it’s a young man shy of brains. A corn shredder is a young man who dances on a girl’s feet and a face stretcher is an old maid who tries to look young.

Here’s a list of 10 most sarcastic flapper slang words. Maybe you can work some of it into your daily language!
  1. Umbrella- young man any girl can borrow for the evening.
  2. Rock of Ages- any woman over 30 years of age.
  3. Face stretcher- old maid who tries to look young.
  4. Cellar Smeller- a young man who always turns up where there’s free liquor to be had.
  5. Corn Shredder- young man who dances on a girl’s feet.
  6. Being Edisoned- getting asked a lot of boring questions.
  7. Finale Hopper- a young man who arrives after everything is paid for.
  8. Mustard Plaster- unwelcome guy who sticks around.
  9. Potato- a young man shy of brains.
  10. Rug Hopper- young man who never takes a girl out. A parlor hound.
Sarcasm was high on the list for women in those emancipating days of the 1920s!
