A vast number of bewildering terms, with no apparent relevance to the rules of grammar or sense, have proliferated among the youth of today and this strange new language can be heard on the back of the bus, in student bars across the land, and online indeed, wherever teens chat breeze (make conversation) together. How to decipher this cryptic talk? Unfortunately, a trawl through Webster's won't say what a milf is, what things are alternately sick and skankaroo, or what it means to get poked on Facebook. As for expletives, well, in the modern age the F-word is the most versatile part of speech around a handy verb, adjective, or noun. This guide helps sort through these words and more for those teeks (derived from antique”) everywhere.
