Learn how to speak the “buckwild” cast’s language with this slangtionary

During the span of Season 1, we definitely learned a thing or two from Shain and his rowdy “BUCKWILD” crew — mainly about how to put your physical well-being at risk with makeshift toys and some duct tape. But perhaps the cast’s most practical teachings dealt with the etymology behind The Wolfpen Holler. Whereas the “Jersey Shore” brought us grenades and GTL, “BUCKWILD” blessed us common folk with a whole slew of funky, new terms. Freshen up your memory with this backwoods slangtionary!
