With all the slang the young people use today, I figured I could come up with some snappy phrases that're just as good - or better. I mean come on... "da bomb"? Really!
So here is some slang I'd now like to introduce into the vernacular. I encourage all my readers to work this slang into everyday conversation whenever possible, in the hope at least some will become popular enough to one day make it into the Oxford Dictionary. Hey, it worked for "bling-bling" so why not? Also, please forward a copy of this list to all your "hip" friends. Letter!
