Interesting take on zoomer lingo Billy, I feel like I’m too old to be using these phrases that my kids use but if I understand correctly your use of aiight and my bad is still on fleek but tight is big yikes I think, or maybe mid is the new tight now😉sorry that was my attempt at humour. Anyway, fun article Billy, great job and not sure how you find the time to write these

Ok, now I have a bunch of new words to learn, thanks for that.

Seems AI thinks humans have polydactyly, but it appears to be improving.

I like phrases with a lot of meaning and context behind them! Languages other than english have a lot of stuff that shows the culture. It's an interesting thing to study!

On fleek has been around for a while haven’t heard it used this year. It was on vine a while back it hasn’t been popular to my knowledge in maybe 3-4 years. As far as slang now goes I use kid more than anything

Fun read man. I didn't like sus at first at all, but then saw it being used like you described and started to like it more. Touch grass is one of my new favorites for sure even though don't find myself saying it as much as seeing it and thinking "yup".

I really enjoy touch grass. It's not overly mean, it's just good advice!
