For example, when a kid refers to a crackberry, its really just a nickname for a BlackBerry, the addictive phone and email gadget.
When you ROFL in a text message, it means youre rolling on the floor laughing.
Scooby doos are a pair of good shoes, and a soul patch is a small tuft of beard under a males lower lip.
Public displays of affection are called cupcaking these days, while a flirtationship is a prolonged flirtation with someone.
A boys night out is referred to as a brodown, while a bromance is a non-sexual relationship between two guys.
If a kid takes a short nap before a night out clubbing theyre taking a disco nap, and if they floss on the town it means theyre showing off their wealth fo shizzle.
