(Tulsa World)   In 2013 could we all agree to stop using made-up words like 'amazeballs' and 'cray-cray'?   (tulsaworld.com) divider line 183

BSABSVR: Totes.


dickfreckle: BSABSVR: Totes.

I farking despise that 'word.' Anyone saying without irony gets an immediate punch in the crotch.


i'm fine with slang, or at least tolerant of most slang, but "totes" is one word that really grates on my nerves terribly

Is this the part where I talk about how my 52 year old mom used the term "true dat" once...I told her not to EVER say that again, heh heh
 
2012-12-30 11:04:47 AM  
Even as a furry, I really would like for other furs to stop saying "yiffy" and I think that most of the community agrees with me.

TofuTheAlmighty: Can we also also ban, upon penalty of tongue excision, "preggo" and "preggers?" Those grate on my senses like no others.


Add the moronic term 'baby bump' and you've got a deal.

"It doesn't does not really save any time not finishing all the words."

Only lazy people use contractions!

Using text abbreviations in conversation deserves a good smack.

Yeah there's a comic for this.

TheMysticS: This is my favorite thread!
How many days in a row does this make it-5?

Amazeballs.


Jesus Christ this. Is Fark even trying anymore? I think Fark's resolution for 2013 should be to hire people that don't greenlight the same crap over and over.

Out here on the ranch we speak English correctly. Last hip thing anyone out here said was gigabyte

I'd appreciate it if we all learned the difference between "rein" and "reign" in 2013.

Artisanal is not a new word.

Of course, every single word and word usage in every single language is new at some point. Some people have a problem with this.

Dat and Lulz need to be bludgeoned to death, and no it's not because I'm mad, it's because I'm tired of knowing that I'm surrounded by farking idiots every time I play a game.

sandbar67: vinniethepoo: whatshisname: Can we also figure out the difference between "then" and "than"?

And "were" vs. "where"?

and "loose" vs "lose"

Also ... Totes Cray Cray Jelly. Now with more Cray Cray.


"They're" and "their"

"You're" and "your"

"Whether" and "weather"

Can we also learn that you cannot make a plural by adding an " 's". It's not the 70's, it's the 70s.
While we're at it, perhaps even learn the difference between "it's" and "its"

These words gifted me an example, but now it eludes me.

I was going to get "4 TH LULZ" as a license plate, because the car was built for shiats n giggles. But then I realized that if I wanted to spend $50 a year to look silly, I'd buy TotalFARK and participate in TFD.

My personal idea of hell is being stuck in a room with people who speak to me exclusively using words from the Profanisaurus, as collated by Roger Mellie (the man from the telly).

(shudder).
 
2012-12-30 12:00:25 PM  
Keep using all these crap words, next thing you know, you'll sound as stupid as the British!
 
2012-12-30 12:01:03 PM  

Spanky McStupid: I propose a moratorium on anyone over the age of 15 using "My bad". Seriously, all of you 60+ year-olds using this need to stop. And if anyone hears those two words issue forth from a 60+ year-old person they have the option to nuke the offender on the spot.


That's just crazytalk!
 
2012-12-30 12:01:06 PM  
'Amazeballs' and 'cray-cray'and all the rest of them in this thread are perfectly cromulent words.
 
2012-12-30 12:02:19 PM  
I must lead a really sheltered life. I haven't never heard anyone say "cray-cray", and I never even heard of "amazeballs" till a similar thread a week or so ago here on fark.

The truly terrifying thing is that this person is, presumably, contributing to the gene pool.

You have brought up a point, here.

This is my personal opinion, mind you.

Anyone over the age of twelve should not use the word "awesome".

Any adult using it just sound silly.

My wife's new social worker (the lazy incompetent biatchy twat one) uses that constantly. She's in her mid to late twenties, for God's sake!
 
2012-12-30 12:11:19 PM  
I love those words.

They immediately warn me of people with whom I would not wish to waste even five seconds attempting intelligent conversation.

What about "lady lumps"?
 
2012-12-30 12:17:42 PM  
Why? Those are totes cromulent words.
 
2012-12-30 12:19:05 PM  
I don't know which is worse; the people who say these things, or the assholes who write entire articles about how annoying it is that people say these things.

FTA

"14. I caught myself saying "shopping cart" instead of shopping trolley today and was thoroughly disgusted with myself. I've never lived nor been to the US either. Graham Nicholson, Glasgow"

Well you don't say?
I was literally irritated having read that article. Thanks!
 
2012-12-30 12:21:23 PM  
I'd settle for restrictions on using "hot" or "hottie" as bait to click the link. Look up three threads for an example.
 
2012-12-30 12:40:35 PM  
The phrase "like a boss" has to go. It is one of the very few sayings that makes the speaker immediately known to posses a mental handicap. We touched on this subject in another thread months ago. Likewise "derp" needs to vanish as well.
 
2012-12-30 12:44:21 PM  
How does someone get an amazeball job writing totes bullshiat stories? My mains and I are so jells that we can't write about cray-cray percents. We could literally actually write about baby bumps and mommy porn while shopping for artisan hipster posters. Jeah. That writer is adorkable!

I did not know that. Thanks.

How does one pronounce MicroSD? I say MY-crosst, she says my-CROSS-ed. Please help.
 
2012-12-30 01:13:38 PM  
I was not familiar with either of those "words" before reading about them in the article.

Fbxrd.
 
2012-12-30 01:14:49 PM  
This columnist sounds unbearable to be around at parties. Well, probably life in general. Language flexes and changes. There will always be slang. She needs to get the dark over it. Totes. Whatevs. Suck it.

Yes, everyone should know all the correct homonyms to use in written expression. Every single farking one!

Just kidding. There are many gifted, brilliant and accomplished folks who are challenged by homonyms and apostrophes. I am a copy editor. And I totally suck ass at math. Worse, I'm an absolute moron when it comes to politics and government issues.

My grown ass sister in law used the word "adoramous" and I wanted to punch her in the face.

My son's girlfriend calls Facebook "the F-Beezy".

Came for the "embiggen". Went home fulfilled.

WhiskeyBender: Considering I just came form Kentucky, I would be happy if I never heard the "N" word again.


I feel the same way about Oakland.
 
2012-12-30 02:16:36 PM  
Never used, or even heard of, either words before and dont plan to start using them now.
