What does thar mean?


Thar is a funny or emphatic way of saying "there." People most commonly use thar to make themselves sound like pirates, whalers, or relatively laid-back individuals.

Yes, pirates and whalers are not known for being laid-back, and no, I don't especially understand how thar gained that third connotation either. But, thar you go.


"That thar is one good-looking chicken. She must be laying a mighty fine number of eggs for y'all."

Thar she blows!
