Reversion[edit]

[1] Why was this edit reverted? Has no one else heard of this expression? 156.34.220.33 19:45, 7 January 2008 (UTC)

Probably the UK constituency didn't recognize it as valid US slang. I'll restore it now. --Connel MacKenzie 19:48, 7 January 2008 (UTC)
The fact that it was in a completely redundant (and misplaced) section probably gave the impression that it was bogus (even though it is not.) --Connel MacKenzie 19:53, 7 January 2008 (UTC)

The Smoke[edit]

Should the definition "London" be in this entry or Smoke? - -sche 20:46, 9 March 2011 (UTC)

Australian and NZ senses[edit]

I've heard the NZ "beat" sense, or a similar sense, in the US, too, but I can't find it in other dictionaries. Dictionary.com has "to move, drive, ride, etc, very fast" as an intransitive sense, which is similar to the sense I'm thinking of, though I'm more familiar with it as a transitive ("they agreed to a street race, and she smoked him") than an intransitive verb. We also appear to be missing an obsolete sense "mock, tease", an Australian sense "to flee; to run off". - -sche (discuss) 01:58, 17 June 2012 (UTC)
