The Importance of Blem

Help required to re-trench the cool Dublin word 'Blem' in Urban Dictionary against a tide of Gravesend slang merchants.

Pass it on!

"Blem" sounds like that noise kids make when they're spitting out food!

Nice campaign. I’ve given it a thumbs up at Urban Dictionary and I'll pass it on. Also, nice blog.

However, when I was growing up, to ‘blem’ meant to kick a football really hard. Although I suppose that could be construed as an exhortation to the football to make a short, swift journey into the goal. So, fair enough then.

I'd be more than willing to accept my share of the blem.

Boom boom.

blankpaige is not a BMW driver, in my view. I see her on a bicycle, one of the little audis, even a vw. But I wouldn't blem her if she drove another model.

In my eyes, she doesn't have a single blem (short for blemish).

And certainly she cooks a mean blem (blemonge...).

Then there's B.L.E.M (or BLEM) = blogs like elegant magic
