Hello everyone!

I have some quick English slang for you this

morning! The slang is the word “bomb” this can be used in slang two ways.

1) meaning to be unsuccessful - fail
Example: I’m going to bomb the test tomorrow

2) to be awesome -cool - good - the best
Example: Wow this new ice cream is the bomb!

Normally bomb would of course mean a destructive and harmful explosive device so be sure to be aware of the context when you hear the word bomb!

Hope you found this helpful! Thanks guys!

    If you say the new ice cream is the bomb, is bomb noun or adjective here? Also “this sushi is bomb”, why not “the bomb”, I am confused.
