Can you accept "haywire" for "On the fritz?"

I elect "dysfunctional."

^ Any/all of these. I tried way too many things and still didn't get it. I'm not sure if "broken" is really the same as "malfunctioning", which is the first definition that shows up when googled.

I wrote "robbery" for "boost." Shouldn't that count?

It's all in how you use the term. For instance: you boost a car stereo, you steal a car stereo, but you don't robbery a car stereo. Subtle difference to be sure, and confusing perhaps. But, that's the way I look at it. :D

Robbery generally refers to stealing something while the victim is present - muggings, stick-ups, etc. The slang term "boost" typically implies theft done furtively.

Or a communist sympathiser, I think. But yeah you're right, it doesn't mean a full on communist.

Oct 28, 2015
A Google search shows a dictionary definition for pinko of a person with left-wing or liberal views. Though I realize it would be derogatory and probably antiquated to call a liberal a pinko, perhaps liberal should be added as an acceptable answer.

"On the fritz" isn't really "broken"....I've only ever heard it used for electronic or mechanical things. You wouldn't say a smashed vase was "on the fritz". Non-functional, not working, out of order might be better answers.
+1
level 75
Apr 18, 2016
I'd agree. The term applies mostly, if not exclusively, to electric or electronic equipment. Broken implies the item doesn't work at all, which isn't totally what I understand is meant by 'on the fritz'. How about 'faulty' as an alternative suggestion?
+1
level 63
May 18, 2016
Yes, "faulty" is a much better answer. "On the fritz" generally refers to an electrical appliance that's starting to break.

In addition, I'm 73 so have been around a l-o-n-g time and still have never heard of "knackered". This just about HAS to be an expression originating from "far across the sea" from US.

I'm 37 and have heard/seen the word "knackered". It always seemed like an old southern thing to me, some grandfatherly Georgian saying something like "I'm plum knackered, I think I'm gonna head bed."

Strange, this site consistently refuses to allow us to complete certain words (i. e., DeGaulle, Riyadh) but demands the final "s" on steroids, even though, the way that the question is worded, the answer could just as easily be singular as plural.
