Since noun is a noun, bloody is an abusive adjective.

The characters say “Bullfrog” and for the life of me, I cannot figure out how or why that turned into a bloody noun…. ?

Not a caption, but a correction: “Bloody noun” does not *mean* South Atlantic states; rather, it’s *used* in South Atlantic states, to mean bullfrog.

@engrishwebmaster: If you check on Dictionary.com, it says that “bloody noun” is a synonym for “bloodnoun”, and if you check that entry, it defines it as bullfrog.

@codeman,

You’re right on the money.

I did a quick search for the hanzi (I only speak Japanese) and it acutally means bullfrog.

Having grown up in SC, I had the same reaction about it meaning “bullfrog” – I’ve never heard that. The reference given by skeptic specifies it’s from Gullah – a creole-like language spoken by a small population of African-Americans living in coastal SC and Georgia.
