Doesn't make sense[edit]

This entry doesn't make sense. How do we know that this is a real term? 04:18, 4 November 2011 (UTC)Reply[reply]

I'm from the area and have never heard this vulgarity. If one is to add this, surely one must also add the awfully more common phrase "hadaway man"?

I just came across it in the novel Regeneration by Pat Barker.

  • To bolster the fortunately retained definition here, I'll add my comment - albeit at a much later date.
etime frequent visitor to the area and having worked extensively with colleagues who were native to within ten miles or so of Tyneside, I can attest to having heard this used by them on more occasions than I can recall, including usage such as this example: "talk to my solicitors, Messrs. Hadaway and Shiteman".
However, I have to add another definition. In some cases, the meaning was closer to "Be quiet, I don't believe you."2602:30A:2C4A:1CB0:114A:C151:15A2:34DA

hadaway and shite[edit]

Geordie SoP = (deprecated template usage) hadaway (go away) + (deprecated template usage) and + (deprecated template usage) shite (shit) (imperative}. Might be worth including in a usage example or citation on [[hadaway]] and [[shite]]. DCDuring TALK 14:29, 4 November 2011 (UTC)Reply[reply]

It isn't SoP if the definition is correct, since the and shite doesn't actually contribute to the meaning. —Angr 18:58, 6 November 2011 (UTC)Reply[reply]
Then we need eat shit and die and many others in which some vulgarity is used as an intensifier in some way. For that matter, hardly any intensifier of any kind adds "meaning". DCDuring TALK 20:05, 6 November 2011 (UTC)Reply[reply]
