It’s 2022, and if you’re only just getting last year’s slang, forget it! Gen Z has invented a whole new lexicon. The March breaks are over, but it’s not too late to prepare for the April school vacation and visits or texts from the grandkids. Don’t get what they’re saying? Once again, I’m here to help.
So, don’t get caught being cheugy. Instead try something savage, like taking my annual “English as a Second Language” quiz. Learn even a few, and those grandkids will think you’re really bussin’!
What the scores mean: 7-10: Excellent, you are the GOAT; 4-6: Pretty Good, but not quite fire; 0-3: barely bussin!
What the slang really means: Amirite – Am I right?; ROTFLMAO – rolling on the floor laughing my ass off; Sliving – living your best life; Okurr – a sassy Okay; Yassify – to yassify something is to glam them up until they’re unrecognizable; Mukbang – watching someone eat large amounts of food; IYKYK – if you know, you know; Bih – add a tc in the middle, and you got it; Cheugy – hanging on to things that were cool years ago; Simp – do way too much for a person you like.
Others: Savage – Something brave or extremely cool; Bussin’ – something really, really good; GOAT – greatest of all time!; Fire – something wonderful.
