Teens always end every sentence with an exclamation point! Notice how 39% of the listed items refer to marijuana! What fun, naysayers!

Y'all S.T.rugglin wit dat?

Try the shizzolator 'n read mo' 'bout da origins of teen lingo 'n why we should be aware of that shiznit.

Talk like snoop dogg. Enter that Urban Lingo [or any] URL and BooYa! Shizzolate that shit!

What happens when www.falwell.com gets shizzolated?
California school officials has issued new textbook regulations that are designed keep "offensive" material from hurting anyone's feelings, know what I'm sayin'?

And how do yo' ass keep from offending muthas?

Invoke censorship."

Krunk is now a bonefide youth culture word?

Hasn't it always been? We used to only spell it with a 'c' for crunk, but I remember hearing it way before Conan said it. For some reason I think it was fairly common regional slang (Southern U.S.) before Conan started using it.

Yes, crunk's been around for a long while. Conan O'Brien says it??

I'm surprised to see that the list is basically accurate, too. Usually these lists are way-off-the-mark, stupid definitions that someone guessed at while trying to use context clues or something. But now the whole vernacular will change, of course. The words are all janky once your mom knows what they mean.

The "pronunciations" are pointless, though. And the little "derivatives" mostly are too. Like:

whas' crackulatin'
(derived from "What's crackulating?")

And "crackulating" is derived from... ??? *snicker* Like it's a real word. actually, I do know, but that would spoil the fun

What the heck is this 'shizzle' stuff? I'm starting to see it all over the place and i don't have a clue. (Feeling mighty old.)

Wow, I expected to go to this and have a good chuckle, but I was blindsided by the "420" thing. Here I had always bought into that police-code explanation. I went to snopes for confirmation, and the fuller story (if it can be believed - but hey, it's snopes) is truly inspirational. 12 high school kids started this out of thin air, and now it's an internationally-renowned code, with brands and everything? Saw-wheat!

If you don't know what this means, please exit now."

Can't figure out if this would alienate a this site's target audience or is designed to give them some solid ground after all the "420"s "bling-blings" and shizzolating (can't believe I just used that shizz-nit as a vizz-nerb).
Either way, when my baby daddy get back he's gonna bust your grill!

Youll have to start listening to some hip hop. heh-heh.

Snoop Dogg started it. Shizzle=shit. Why? Why not. The link has all his lyrics. Start easy, say with an older CD, Doggstyle, track: Gin'n Juice.

It's all about the rhymin'.

I actually like the idea of rap. Quite textured stuff...

Can't take the filthy mysogynistic stuff tho. As for shizzle I will simply take your word for it.
