Well, how do you fare compared to the Zeitgeist? Chat up your fellow wooters and let us know how lame this poll was or what obvious choices we missed. For example: Was this poll a) STUPID, b) DUMB, c) POINTLESS or d) ALL OF THE ABOVE?

"Sirrah"'s an insult, yo. You could be sarcasming with the "good" preface, but it's redundant when "sirrah"'s already got that attitude folded right into itself and just makes it seem off rather than the condescension it could be simply miasma-ing. Harrumph.

If I don't know for sure I just ask. Or Google it. That's what "Urban Dictionaries" are for.

Modern slang is so groovy, cool, far-out, neat-o and outta sight.
Can you dig it?

I understand using it in conversation, but I don't like it in written form. Twitter has restrictions of space, so condensed, phonetic spellings are understandable. But it really bothers me when adults shorten already short words when texting. A friend uses 'k' instead of 'ok' and that seems stupid to me.

Now get off my lawn! (grumbling) Damn kids and their texting...
