Combination post: Is salty a bad thing?
It probably depends entirely on context.
Salty in food: overly seasoned, with salt (pretty hard to get away from using the base word here)
Salty in life: synonymous with bitter, but more specifically being easily or excessively upset by something (not that important)
Salty in Philadelphia: someone who just got played (as per Urban Dictionary)
When you ask your teenagers, or in this case, pre-teen “Is salty a bad thing?” They aren’t exactly sure how to answer the question, but so-and-so definitely is…in life and, as it happens to be, in Philadelphia. So, which is it?
