    Approved Slang..

    Listen, I've had it up to here

    ::holds hand above eyes::

    with nowadays-slang. It's just so stupid. Because I'm nice, and
    I don't want today's kids sounding like morons, I've compiled a list
    of acceptable slang words:

    Rad and/or Radical.
    Tubular.
    Awesome.
    Gnarly.
    Cool.

    That is it! Those are the only words you are allowed to use
    on this board and in real life... The general rule is, if the word
    wasn't used in the 80's, it has no place in today's youths'
    vocabulary...

    I'm sorry, but this issue is not open for debate...

    What I say goes. <-period!

    Normally ethic, I'd have to agree, but since I'm a 90s kid I can't.

    Here are the approved slang terms:

    phat
    cool
    sweet
    dank

    Edit:

    OMG, how could I forget this one:

    suck(s)

    And here is a list of words you can't you:

    swell
    bad (as in a good thing )

    I never used the word phat, and dont like it, so that would be on my dont use list.

    I do however like the work sweet, but u have to have a lot of es: sweeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeet.

    Does anyone ever used rad or gnarly, I never have.

    Ive only used radical when quoting that Simpsons episode.

    Milhouse2: Huh. Radical.
    Bart: They're getting rich off us!
    Milhouse: And the kid with the backpack said "radical". I say
    "radical". That's my thing that I say! I feel like I'm
    going to explode here

    My new word is 'swate' and it's going over pretty well. I've already got a few other people using it. It's supposed to be a variation of 'sweet'.

    Other good ones are....

    awesome
    cool
    bad
    kick ass
    bad ass
    nice (you have to say it a certain way to get the coolness effect)

    The ones that I don't like are:

    gnarly
    rad
    tubular
    radical
    phat
    getto (it doesn't apply to the list of postive slang words but I still don't like it)

    I think in the '80's they had an expression: Don't have a spaz!

    I don't think I've heard of dank, but let's ban a few more slang words:

    - tight. Your belt is tight because you're fat not because it's cool.
    - hella. Why?
    - skeet. Why is everything "hella skeet" (bad, uncool, boring)? I'm glad that didn't last long.
    - dog, dawg, or daw'. I'm a human being!
    - 'Sup? Supping is eating dinner, so don't tell me to sup.

    1950's slang would make more sense to a wide audience, especially if you're a politician: "Aw, shucks, mister, you sure are swell!"

    'foki' (pronounced foe-key) is the only word you need. It can be used as an adjective, noun or whatever you feel like.

    You can say things like, "damn that was foki" or "you're such a foki" maybe "I got me some foki last night " or "why don't you go foki somewhere else".
    It can even be used alone: "foki!".

    I have a friend named Josh Foulke (pronounced Folk), but I call him Foki (prounounced the same way as tgm's foki). That's not really interesting for any of you, but it still fits into the conversation, somewhat.

    You see! That's exactly what I'm talking about! Those words
    suck (especially the "iz" variations)...

    I'm sorry Ken, but if want to be rad (like me), drop those bogus
    words.

    Oh, "Bogus" is also acceptable.

    The only words I say are 'cool' and 'sweet'. But when I say sweet I sound like a full aussie drongo. One thing to not say involving the word sweet is
    ...yeh, do I got in trouble with this so I decided to not run away, I was going to cop it sweet

    Best slang word

    Hot.

    As in. "Dude, that's hot.."

    Ex:

    John plays a cool drum beat. Ben says, "Dude, that's hot."

    /Ex:

    Hot as in righteous.

    What about 'rock'?
    That's pretty rock, dude
    You gonna share some of that rock...no wait, nevermind.
    Turn no more aside and brood
    Upon love's bitter mysteries
    For Fergus rules the brazen cars...
