Young people don't have slang.

They're simply too lazy to finish entire words.

The most effective way to get young people to stop using stupid slang like YOLO or twerking or cray-cray is for us old farts to start using it.

So no.

I use internet slang online, but I've managed to avoid allowing it to slip into professional documents or spoken language. There are certain terms, though, that feel uncomfortable to write, let alone say, anywhere: YOLO, totes, amazeballs, word... and my 55 year old mother in law uses them all on Facebook. It's quite cringe-inducing.

Cloudchaser Sakonige the Red Wolf: Selfie is not in there because it's not a word that over 35's should stop using, it's a word that everyone should stop using.  Selfie sounds like a faddish word used by teenagers because to them it sounds cool

I thought "selfie" sounded like metaphor for masturbating.
/which it turns out it is.

I just remember how sad it was when I was a teenager using all sorts of stupid slang, and my dad started trying to use the same slang in a bid to connect with me.
"yo dawg, do your homework."
"The soccer game starts in 45 minutes.  We gots ta bizzounce."
"Have fun getting jiggy at that school dance this weekend"

I love weirding out the kiddies using their slang. Especially the sailors on navy ships when I'm trying to fix things - "the timing relay is totes jacked up, yo...."

Dear young people.

"Eww wah eww wah, whatevs, UNNGGHH!"  and "Yeah, we be, like, f*ckin' sh*t, yo!" is not much of a manifesto.   We're not using your slang to sound "cool", whatever cool is this week, we're using your slang to make fun of you because it's very easy to do.


Now go play with you blinky toys and try not to get knocked up or shot by 16.
