Hello!

I've seen this on an Internet forum. I understand this was intended as a derogatory remark, but may I ask what the hell are "tendies"??

Did you type this before or after your mom called you for tendies?

Many thanks.

No idea.

I guess it's some family slang/'baby talk'.

It's not a slang or idiomatic word which is used here, probably just some small social group or one single family invented it.

I've seen chicken tenders called tendies somewhere.

EDIT: Found this in Wiktionary https://en.wiktionary.org/wiki/tendie#English


In the beginning there was nothing, which exploded.

Okay, thank you!

If it's not a common word, then it doesn't matter. Thank you for replying!

JJ seems to have got it right:

The Urban Dictionary says this:

Tendies
Tendies, also known as chicken tenders, chicken fingers, chicken strips or chicken fillets, are chicken meat prepared from the pectoralis minor muscles of the animal. These strips of white meat are located on either side of the breastbone, under the breast meat (pectoralis major).


Johnny used 5 good boy points to get ten tendies.

OK, so I just asked the geeks - yes, it is derogatory; yes it has got something to do with chicken tenders. But it stands for a concept: Neck-beards.

Who are those fat, pasty, trolls who only come out of their basement/cellar lairs, when mummy calls them for tendies (i.e. soft, pappy junk-food,) at regular intervals. Because Neck-beards mostly live with their Mums.They are usually trolls but, even if not, are weird, sweaty, societal misfits.

SO: - by referencing mummy and the 'tendies' he is truly insulting the guy: - he is calling him a Neck-beard. The lowest of the low.

(They also brought up a music video about 'tendies' and all sorts of references to it all over the 'Net. It started, like most of these 'trending' terms, on 4Chat!)

What are tendies?



reddit.com





"Specifically playing on the idea that neckbeards are maladjusted "man-children", and chicken nuggets/tenders are considered "kids' food". Popularized by 4chan greentext stories about basement dwelling neckbeards in their mid-twenties who can exchange "good boy points" with their mother in exchange for "tendies"."
