Slang?[edit]

I'm one of a long line of England-born, England-inhabiting and hence British-English speakers. I've never heard of 'schlubby', so maybe I/we should be grateful to the New York Times for (assuming the cited reference is accurate) inventing it - I mean bringing it to our attention.

More evidence here. [1] Are you saying that the NYT, as a US publication, must use British English, or do you know something about the quoted article that I don't? Equinox 23:07, 24 February 2009 (UTC)
My apologies, Equinox. It seems I was, to say the least, hasty. I'll check Google in future. Trafford09 23:36, 24 February 2009 (UTC)
