    pronounced ka mat

    means "come at" (I think)

    From a youtube review: "and I'm gonna c'mat y'all with a review..."

    I had to listen to it 4 or 5 times before I understood what he said.

    I think "c'mat" is a shoter version of of "c'mat'chew" and/or "c'mat'e"

    c'mat= come at me. Sounds stupid if you really want to fight a person, is just fine for playing around with a buddy. I used that a few weeks ago on a bandmate - it's important to strike the dorkiest boxing pose you can to make the moment right.:D

    I said sounds stupid because of my belief there is no reason to tell a person to come at you - if you are at the point of fighting the advantage is always with the one who strikes first.

    Cybermat - isn't that the thing you get laid out on when you lose at virtual boxing?

    That's closer to how he pronounced it, four words as one word.

    i want to have this shirt but change at for on. Cause it looks like what superman is waiting for. Though probably a batman one would be better. Considering all the robin batman gay subtext. Bro, rob'...hmm...theres a even better idea for a shirt maybe.

    c'mat. I don't understand why you people are miunderstanding this word so badly. It is French. It is similar to c'est la vie, only it means, gee, I would really like to buy you a beer, but unfortunately we are in a laundramat and they only sell soap.

    It's a useful word to know, since those kinds of situations are common in some parts of the world.
     
  20. There's a great laundrymat in Arcata that also has draft beer. Blondies is the name of the place I think.
