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

I told my wife that something was "totes cray-cray" recently. She looked at me like I was retarded for about 5 seconds and then slapped me. Maybe she doesn't appreciate irony.

Came here to say this.

All words are made up, subby.


Dan Brown also writes novels. Doesn't necessarily mean they're worth reading.

Bennie Crabtree: Cray-cray is terrible though.


Gotta say, any slang that takes longer to say than the normal word or phrase that it replaces is bad slang.

I may feel that I can validly assume anyone that says 'totes' is stupid, but at least they're being efficient in their stupid.

Language changes. It doesn't really have an absolute form.

However, like democracy, it is of course our right to rail and rant against those changes. :) Just remember that, in so ranting, you're representing a group that's afraid of losing its power through language change... so almost by definition, you're on the wrong side of history.

The whole process is kind of beautiful, when you think about it. If you get hung up on a random word or two, just remember that "cool" was pretty ridiculous to older people as a descriptor for "popular / awesome," right up until the advent of West Side Story. Et cetera.

/ Just play it cool, Farkers... real cool.

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

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.

Pants full of macaroni!!: The last invented word to be acceptable to the English language was "computer"


computer (n.) Look up computer at Dictionary.com
1640s, "one who calculates," agent noun from compute (v.).

So you're saying no words have been invented since 1640.

The last invented word to be acceptable to the English language was "computer". Any word that was created after that is not a real word, and anyone who uses these fake words should be beaten to death with a sledgehammer.

The rhythm of "amazeballs" is actually excellent. It scans well, and therefore it is a great addition to English slang. Cray-cray is terrible though.
