It seems to me that the word Bodacious is forever chained to be the adjective of tatas.

Really, have you ever heard the word Bodacious used beyond as a singular expletive or in describing tatas? And who the hell uses the word "tata" except when they're bodacious?

It's things like this that keep me up at night.

I mean awake.

To me, the word is forever linked to ribs due to a local restaurant ad.
"We have bodacious St. Louis ribs."

How I hate that commercial.

I think it was from Porky's or one of its sequels, or a similarly-themed movie from that era.

I sometimes use "bodacious" when affecting a Southern Gentleman accent, which sounds a lot like Foghorn Leghorn attempting a Scottish brogue in Hindi.

What in the world is a St Louis rib? I thought St Louis only contribution to the culinary world was a crappy combination of cheeses for pizza.

Wow, are St Louis ribs not called that in St Louis? I wonder what you would call them.

As to the OP... I have used and have heard the word bodacious used in other contexts. Especially in conjunction with hyped up machinery... like... That is one Bodacious Bike! (motorcycle)

Also, BODACIOUS TATAS is the title of a porno movie. I worked in a videotape rental store during the 1980s and we had a copy in stock.

After consulting Larousse and not finding it among the 31 "Saint Something" entries (or "Barbeque" or sections on cuts), I'm forced to surmise that it doesn't exist.

The internet, on the other hand, claims it's what you get when you take spare ribs and remove the brisket (rib tips) and skirt.

I know it primarily as a word linked to the late 80s/early 90s surfer culture. The Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles used it a lot.

Or perhaps "An Officer and a Gentleman" (1982) as spoken by a young David Keith, about his hot new girlfiend, to an equally young Richard Gere. (And yes, it was delivered with a southern drawl.) Not exactly a light or supercilious film to be sure.

A still comparatively milk toast line compared to todays pop/rap driven vulgarities.

I simply can't recall ever having used or needing to use "bodacious" then or since.

You can't just come in here making claims like that. If there's one thing I know about RSPers, it's that they demand proof!

Actually, I'm demanding that you make no attempt to prove that.

As grey traces of dawn tinge the eastern sky, the three travellers, men of Willowdale, emerge from the forest's shadow. Fording the river, they turn south, journeying into the dark and forbidding lands of The Necromancer...

I've never heard of this phrase either.

But how can it be kosher to perform a Jewish ceremony on pork?!??

Well, I always say the geekgold at RSP isn't much, but the tips are enormous...

No less an authority than Joe Bob Briggs seems to confirm that the phrase originated with Keith. (see second article)

http://articles.orlandosentinel.com/keyword/tellico-plains/r...

If you can't trust Joe Bob about that, you can't trust anyone. There is no one with more expertise.

Agreed. Joe Bob Briggs is the ultimate authority. Although I do wonder why he looks nothing like the photo that ran with his movie review columns my college newspaper published back in 1984.

(I just posted this because Paul mentioned in another thread that he hadn't received any responses to his above post, yet.)

I went to the University of Dallas in the early 1980s and worked on the school newspaper, as did a roommate. We knew that John Bloom was Joe Bob before it was common knowledge.

I think that is some of the only truly significant secret inside info I've ever had.

I'm with Jarred here entirely. Never heard it reference tatas at all; only exactly as Jarred described; TMNT especially.

I was at Towson State University in Maryland in the early 1980's. I was an editor for the campus newspaper, and we ran Joe Bob's syndicated columns, as I mentioned. After one column, the Feminist groups on campus threatened to destroy all our newspapers (we were a weekly) if we ran a Joe Bob Briggs column again (we continued to do so).
