A Lesson In Current Slang
I'm 33, which is still technically pretty young, and most of the time I feel like I keep up on current trends and lingo, but nothing makes you feel old like being around teenagers. Especially when they seem to speak a different language.
We asked listeners about current slang that they find annoying. Then, it turned into a lesson, where we all worked together to define these new words in our vernacular.
I think we all learned some new things this morning.
Here are a few comments from our listeners via our text line.
- Slang. He looks fresh. Meaning he looks good Hot
- I don't get "stan". What does that mean? ----Stan, according to Urban Dictionary, "A crazed and or obsessed fan. The term comes from the song Stan by eminem. The term Stan is used to describe a fan who goes to great lengths to obsess over a celebrity."
- My daughter and her teenage friends call a cute boy a snack.
- Tongue wrestle.... I'm not going to tongue wrestle with you... Argue with you
- I work on a college campus and hear kids say the words Gucci and Salty! I guess using the words cool and rude are no longer the it words!
- What does and I oop mean? Is it like a mistake? ----Still no idea what this means.
- So bet pretty much means, like want to make a bet or bet that I won't
Now, I want everyone to use bet, VSCO, and I ooop in a sentence today.
Just kidding, I'm still not sure I know what any of this means.
I think one texter said it best when they sent in this comment: "
