|Sounds like a bit of a bish to me.|
(image by Andrew Forgrave)
Noun. Slang. Mid-20th century.
A mistake, a blunder.
Researching the distinctly posh sounding bish has been quite a task. For one thing, on searching for bish meaning "blunder", Google was understandably determined to return hits on George W. Bush, fond and oddly adept as he is in the art of the über-bish. Taking it down to street level, bish also gets a little bit ghetto, quaintly defined in the Urban Dictionary as "a soft and loving term for bitch". Aww. Bless those young scallywags and their charmingly offensive gutterspeak! Oh, bish is also short for 'bishop', and imitative Australian slang for throwing something (I have no idea what bish is imitating here). So there it is. Whether you want to write about Bush's bushisms, insult a woman, get cozy with the clergy or lob something at an Australian, bish might just be the word for you.
