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 :rolleyes: )

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!".

:D

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

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.

I can honestly say that I've never heard anyone use "rock" before as slang :)

However, I did hear someone use the word f'gonna once or twice... I assumed that they combined finni and gonna... hmm

's == it's or that's the listener/reader needs to understand which one it is by the surrounding context. I use that one a lot.

shiznit can be ok sometimes
dope is not ok
da bomb is not ok
smooth can be ok sometimes
slick can be ok sometimes
bust that out can be ok sometimes

It really all depends on who is saying, how often the person usually says it, the tone of voice the person uses when saying it, how popular the saying is, and the situation when the person uses for determining if a slang word is ok or not.
