These words are fun.  I just found a western slang for writers website that has some fun words too. I was looking up the definition of 'proddy' and kept seeing it as derogatory term for a Protestant in. Seemed like British slang.    Then changed my search to focus on western slang and got this fun site http://www.legendsofamerica.com/we-slang-p.html
