Have you got your boots on, Jack? Do you collar this jive? Listen all you righteous cats and canaries, it's copacetic. Don't be a hincty Jeff. Put on your cogs, get in there and focus on how to speak hip so you can dig what I am laying my racket about.

Can't find drongo in the list. Guess I'll just put up my Dutch pegs and have a Germaine Greer.

The non-use of a contraction here strikes me as pretty square...

...but the hip misspelling of copasetic with a k makes up for it.

Best use of "jive" or "hep talk" occurred in the amazing 1980 movie "Airplane!" And using Barbara Billingsley as the foil...perfect.
