What's the world coming to these days? On the bus yesterday I heard these teenage kids speaking what sounded like English but I couldn't understand some of the words they were using.

In the good old days we used to speak with the Queen's English and enunciate our words in order that everybody could understand. Kids nowadays have no respect for the English language.

I'm in a bit of a dilemma: my inner conformist is telling me they should stamp out all bastardisation of the English language; while my inner iconoclast is thinking, "good on you kids for creating your own language."

Oooh, I can't decide whether to be a conformist or an iconoclast.

What the hell, this topic is only a floccinaucinihilipilification.
