    Hi folks,
    today i'm helping out on a feature for an end of the decade urban dictionary type piece featuring "hilarious" phrases/words associated with the last ten years. It'll be words like Pwned, Epic Fail etc etc.

    Any suggestions? The best one wins a prize (ie-some free cds etc etc)

    thanks!


    Edwin.

    I don't know if this counts but I hate this one:

    LMFAO

    It offends me so.

    Also:

    "(insert number here) more sleeps" (I like that though)
    OMG
    OMFG
    WTF
    totes
    Oh hai bb
    And all these ones currently associated with 'fandom' (can't someone really like a TV programme without having to use crap terminology?)
    HBIC or head bitch in charge (*shudder*)
    bitchface
    bitchfays
    SRSBSNIS
    kthxbai

    And an honourable mention to writing everything in caps and using ironic 111's instead of !

    Lou what do any of these mean? its all fuckin gibberish!

    How about 'JFGI' .. Just fucking google it!

    I don't know if you actually wanted my explanation Davy but here it is!

    HBIC refers to a powerful female in a TV show. OMG Scully/Brennan/someone else was totes HBIC - look at her giving Mulder/Booth/other character bitchface. Usually accompanied by a screenshot and huge white letters saying something stupid (like the writing they use for those stupid cat pictures).

    And I'm still not 100% sure what they mean when they say SRSBSNIS - it stands for serious business though. And seems to appear when someone is being 'HBIC!!!!111111'.

    Of course if I don't like it, I shouldn't hang round these forums but oh well...

    If anything the 2000's have seen the decline in the ahine from it's heyday back in '99.

    I'm actually convinced I invented interwab, about 2001, on this very forum. "the interweb" was the time's equivalent of what's now "the internetz", and I had a penchant for calling people wabs at the time, so I remember hilariously putting the two together.

    So I'm convinced I invented it. Seriously like, I'm not even slegging

    The word random seems to be used a lot, to refer to pretty much everything. "You're so random!" "That's really random" etc.

    What's ahine? And how is it pronounced? A-heen? A-highn?

    google has pervaded society to such a point that it's actually become a verb, similar with youtube. E.g. google it! youtube it!
    Smirting- brought in after the smoking ban, it is the act of smoking outside a bar with the sole purpose of meeting people & flirting.
    Mantrum- when a guy has a bitch fit.
    Bromosexual- relating to the rise in guys hugging guys or bromance.
    Camwhore- relating to the folk on myspace who pull that smirk face and don't stare directly at the camera also related to...
    The Angles- the bizarre rise in photographs of people attempting to make themselves look more attractive by not showing their face directly ie. She's hot... no she isn't, she's got the angles.
    Emo- although it's technically been around a good while longer it's only really taken off this decade. Related to 'scene whores/ scene kids'
    Shart- the deadly combo that is passing wind with a damp follow through.
    guy-liner - make up for men...
    Douche bag, doucher, douche fag etc. Common insult.
    Blog- it's a fairly common word this decade.

    I'm sure there are a million others...

    That's a good non-internet one actually, yeah.

    Here Marty, sorry to shatter your delusions like, but if you search for "interwab" and pick the earliest entry, I think you'll find it was me :-)

    Though I wouldn't say I invented it, more the first to use it on here ;-)

    I'm not as down as I thought I was cause I can't think of many, but I suppose going "commando" has come into common usage even if it's now a bit lame.
    Hardcore - everything is hardcore now, from your laptop to a large fry.
    Fn spk is a huge revolution in language in the past decade. Teacher friends of mine have unbelievable stories of their kids handing up homework or completing exams with "Hitlr wuz a fkn cnt, 4real" - or whatever in them. There's actually now phone speak translations in the back of the Oxford English dictionary for crying out loud, as well as a guide to what various emoticons mean. It's fucking bizarre.
