Wypas- "cool/ nice"
ale zwała- used when you make fun of sth/sb
mieć przypał- to have a problem

Lately in polish slang switching syllables it the words is trendy (i also use it).
For instance: "pałprzy" instead of "przypał"; or "brzedo" instead of "dobrze"- a simple "ok"

gliniarz, glina- a police officer


In communism times in Poland police was wearing badges made of pine wood. The pine tree naturally grows on a clay (glina in polish). This is how the word gliniarz was born.

there's some more:

łycha - it means a large spoon but also a bottle of whiskey
trzepak, pocieracz - porn movie
puknąć - to knock, but it also means to masturbate
spawarka - a welding machine but also a lighter

enjoy :)

P.S. I'm a bit too old to say that kind of words(33), so i'm not using it anymore - just remember them ...my silly teenage time :)
