A friend from Poland once told me "mega" means something like pu$$y. Is this true? Am I spelling it wrong? She kept laughing hysterically whenever my friend and I used the word mega. I haven't been able to find anything about it online.

In British slang (or in fact young people in South East England) definitely yes. I've never heard anything like that in Polish (which doesn't lack words for that body part). Perhaps it's a youth thing here too, or associated with a particular context.

Yes, at least as recent as a year or so ago. But it doesn't mean c1pa, just something like great, super amazing etc. I just heard that a recent slang expression is 'kot' (meaning very good).

"Oglądałeś Django? Mówię ci, film jest naprawdę kot" (courtesy urban dictionary)

'kot'

In Warsaw, you hear 'git'. Sometimes 'git mayonez'.

'git'

yea,,git word comes from old prison slang meaning cool ...in 80-ties there was name for them prison top brass called "gitowcy" in opposite to low level prison inmates called "cwele" cwele were often beaten and mistreated badly.those were guys convicted for sexual offences

gitowcy can be recognised by little dot tattoo near eye socket
it was all hierarchy in commie prison population.

Apparently one of the more interesting things that happened in the 1980's was that the communists put a lot of the leading opposition figures into normal prisons, hoping that the prisoners would do the damage for them. What happened was exactly the opposite, the political prisoners were treated with respect by inmates, and the political prisoners in return would help them with reading/writing letters, providing legal advice, etc etc.

"cwele"

That term does still exist, both in 'gryps' and also in other subcultures.

Remember that the 'cwele' and the'gitowcy' all 'grypsują'.

What happened was exactly the opposite, the political prisoners were treated with respect by inmates

This is not unusual.

interesting...i wouldn't be surprised if thats true. recydywa and git-ludzie hated commies as well,cus of very harsh criminal sentencing.
it was very harsh back then. i got one conviction in my life and thats just for smashing glass window in kiosk,while drunk.i was just 17 and got 2 years prison suspended for 4 years for such folly offence.even tho i never had any conviction before i almost got imprisoned for that.

different time,today i would maybe got mandat-ticket or warning at most

Hi... This is really interesting. Also a question:

What would 'a szto to' mean in a reply to someone? Or is szto a name?

Thanks in advance! :)

What would'a szto to' mean

"what is this?" or "whats that?"
its from russian language ..kinda..in russian language it would be - "a szto eto"-(of course written in polish)

'a szto to' mean in a reply to someone?

A szto eto? is in Russian and means "and what is this?"

Great! Thank you, that makes sense now.

I shall return, as this is a great resource! I'm keen to understand my girl better and look forward to visiting Poland!
Thanks again

This is from Russian and has completely different meaning. But you're a troll.

completely different meaning

The thing is that everyone knows what blyat means, if only watching russians having car crashes on you tube, a very poor attempt at being a troll indeed.

I thought I'd come across "blyat" in Russian meaning "bribery" of some sort or other:-) Although I'm sure there must be a slang expression as well, could have sworn I either read or heard this word.

My grandfather used this also for all the grandsons in our family. He use to tell them that they were good bobeks.
I have also been looking for the meaning of the term he was using. I always took it as if he were telling them they were good little "*****" ; I believe bobek is also a term for droppings. But I am not sure of any of this and he has passed away.

I too would be interested in knowing .

"Blat" is the word you mean. As opposed to soft "l" in "blyat". To have a "blat" means to be connected, to know people who can help you out or get you whatever you want that other people can't get. The word is from 80s 90s and is not really used these days.. Well, maybe still in Russia haha..

Think you must be right. I've also encountered the word "vzyatka".
