what does (( wam bam thank you mam )) mean ??
It's a reference to fast and no-frills sexual activity
Wham — man strides in and sweeps woman off her feet
Bam — rapid bout of intercourse
Thank you Ma'am — man thanks lady and departs
Thanks a lot
but can you put it in a sentence , please ?
A) How did your date with Fred go last night?
B) Oh you know, he was a bit Wham bam thank you Ma'am. I don't think I'll be seeing him again.
I cannot imagine this is a phrase you're going to need very often. I'm intrigued about the context for why you want to do this!
Could someone help me understand this: "wham, bam, thank you, ma'am"?
What does it means?
The whole paragraph is: "I knew right then that a "wham, bam, thank you, ma'am" was on the way. I unlocked my apartment guiding her to my bedroom and to the penthouse suite."
Thank you for your help!
The context suggests that this is used in a fairly literal sense - they're going to have sex. It can also be used a bit more figuratively to suggest something happened very quickly, as in "I told the boss he was an idiot and wham, bam, thank you, ma'am I was out of a job".
Thank you Timpeac!
my female friend put on her facebook status "Its going to be a wam bam thank you mam weekend!" does it mean she is going to look for quick sex?
That is the implication - but she could well mean it as a joke, and she just intends to have a kiss and a cuddle...
Note that while this phrase is frequently jocular in use, it is also frequently pejorative...
You really should ask her directly what she means, as the chances are high it is some sort of joke, but without knowing the girl or her social life it is not possible to tell.
People use Facebook up-dates to entertain their pals, and not always in a factual way. Such expressions may be used in novel ways to suit the individual and her friends.
Thanks Suzi br I think it was just a joke... and if not, she won't tell me the true anyway.
