In such a case, it is difficult to determine which meaning is primary, yelling or arguing, but it seems that yelling is more probable. The meanings are definitely related, but the existence of phrases involving "beef" to denote things such as "to lead applause" makes it seem probable that "yell" or exclaim loudly" is primary.

Bloody

3. A general adjective of expletive nature. It can also be used to mean "very," but is still considered vulgar in that context. The etymology of this word is quite debated. Many hold that it derives from "By Our Lady," meaning the Virgin Mary. This would account for its offensiveness, but many claim that the transition is not linguistically possible and it is far from proven or substatiated. Another proposed etymology is "God's Blood" which I consider highly improbable. The only other seriously plausible proposal is that it comes from exactly where it sounds like it does, from the adjective form of "blood." See "bloody" 1. Support for this is lent by the use of the German "blutig" and the Dutch "bloedig" in much the same manner, though those uses may possibly have been influenced by English. The question left to be begged if the last proposal is true is why the word was considered so offensive?


Blunt

"Marijuana Cigar." Drug culture term for a large marijuana joint wrapped in a cigar paper, from the cigar brand "Phillies Blunt." These cigars are often sold singularly in Philadelphia neighborhood stores.
