Just wondering


I am just wondering how us older ones can keep up with the language nuances.I saw this as part of a newspaper report on how the people in our new New Prime Minister's constituency were celebrating her  swearing- in ceremony at Kings House


One young man summed up the optimism of the gathering by holding aloft a can of 'tin boom' (tin mackerel).

Now if I were to refer to tin boom in a children's story ???????????

Recently, I heard a young girl giving testimony at a church service and admitting to deliberately waiting on
'the music bus.' Our people language is very vibrant and fluid. While I immediately understand music bus, (the buses that play loud music and lewd songs, despite the law) I will have to ask somebody why tin boom.
