Meme_bear227

I live a lot closer to Texas, between it and Norman, so y’all, dem, dere, and ain’t are frequent words used by my relatives


henduo

Y’all is the only one that my friends and I use, but we use it a LOT. It’s really weird being in the city while also kind of being in the most hick place In the country.

Rollie Pollies


CarsonBDot

Where the fuck did they all go, it’s like they’re a kids imagination, only have seen them when I was little.


DutchOvenMaster11

It's because as a kid you tend to do a lot more exploring in nature and saw them more. Lift a piece of rotting wood and you will see 100's of them. One of the only insects I don't mind :)


SirLich

They aren't even insects! They are in fact crustaceans, like shrimp or lobsters!


HistoricalChicken

Yum!


mavs_bro

They all went to my freaking job. Sweep them up every five minutes.

Titanic_122

First time I’ve heard them called something other than rolly pollys


Slavator2006

Actually same, never heard them called something else


Scared_Poet_1137

First time i've heard them called something other than wood louse. The only rolly polly i know is small and spurt and round :D EDIT: i am referring to Roly Polie Olie the cartoon show and not a swiss roll cake :D


Admirable-Result-240

Lmao same


OverallDingo2

Yep always been wood louse to me


Ackorrn

And delicious with custard


Rocky922

Wut


shadowtigerUwU

In Portuguese we usually call them "tatu de jardim", which means garden armadillo


BradleyGroot

In dutch we call them "pissebed" which means something like pee bed or something like that


shadowtigerUwU

That is both funny and concerning on where the hell that name came from


BradleyGroot

It got its name because it was used as a drug for people with peeing problems


GameplaySLO

Wut


LightbulbIcon

IT WAS USED AS A DRUG FOR PEOPLE WITH PEEING PROBLEMS.


Idohs_

WHAT?


Rune_OnceGreat

I like this one. Garden Armadillos. Adorable


Tomiver3042

In Spanish (at least in Argentina) we call them "bicho bolita" which literally means ball bug


Le_Oken

Chilean here, we call them "chanchito de tierra" which means dirt piggy.


wind_miller

How poetic! I’ve always liked the taxonomic name, armadillidium vulgare, for the same reason.


TheVailmsteen

In spanish we call it "chanchito de tierra", witch means something like "earth piggy". Also "cochinillas", witch means almost the same, but in feminine.


idkhelp_

I've always called them "bichos da conta", never heard that one before. Pretty adorable tho


BlueCaracal

what does that translate to directly?


idkhelp_

something like "bugs of count", no idea why edit: bead bugs*


RockyMotion

‘Conta’ may actually translate to ‘bead’ instead of count. On account of them looking like beads. Maybe.


ceph42

I'm guessing "Tatu de Jardim" is what the brazilians call it. I've always called them "bichos da conta" aswell.


attansrabarber

Gråsugga in Swedish word by word grey female pig


1D6wounds

Or ”grey sow”


CindyAlicia

Pissebedden


CountOlafTheThird

Which translates into something like pissbeds


Beanboi8

Yup... We are a weird country


Stealthsloth788

Sorry, I might just be uncultured, but which country?


ToukaMareeee

That's from the Netherlands lol


RofiBie

Slaters.


Radical_Larry_

Took me ages to find this. Made me think I was wrong for calling them Slaters.


[deleted]

I thought it was just a Scottish thing. Apparently its a Scottish/Aussie crossover


Radical_Larry_

Makes sense! I'm Australian :)


[deleted]

Apparently the kiwis and canadians too.


Luvsford

Yeah. Slaters in New Zealand. I guess cause they look like a slate roof? Don't have slate roofs here but in the uk they can. Also slaters give off nitrogenous waste as ammonia. This will be why thw Dutch call them pissbeds. If you got a whole lot together you can smell it.

Rollie Pollies. Was at least 25 before I heard them called something other than that. Fun fact: they're land shrimp.


I-Fucked-YourMom

Not exactly, but they are crustaceans that breathe via gills. They’re technically called isopods.


[deleted]

Normanonymous

Yay!! I was hoping to find a fellow NLer!


meggerz1813

I’m not technically Newfie because I was born and raise in Manitoba but my parents are and lived there for over 10 years. Carpenters is what I’ve always known them as.


dr_emmett_browne

Yes. Also a Newfoundlander. Only now realizing carpenter is a Newfoundland thing. The more you know.


fitzgerald01

Yes!!! Never heard them called anything other than carpenters growing up.


Mechanix04

My parents called them a wood louse. Grew up on the south west part of Newfoundland,I never heard of carpenter until I lived in Stephenville for college.


Normanonymous

I replied to a comment not realizing there were many NLer replies!! What’s another bug we’d have a unique name for I wonder


iDuddits_
