“I love a mouthful”
 

The Two-Way challenged their colleagues to see who could use the most new additions in a single sentence. Here’s Lauren Hodges, THE WINNER!!!

“Hey bruh, NBD and I don’t want to bants or act all butthurt, but I will straight-up rage-quit our lease over your fur-baby, who is rly not awesomesauce, despite your repeated attempts to mansplain its resting bitch face as “pensive,” or its constant theft of my frozen barbacoa burritos because it was hangry and craving something melty even though you get all cheffy for it three times a day, or its butt-dialing my ex because you didn’t see my phone sitting there while you were getting it to kayfabe all over the table for your rando friends, or my swole eyes being from my constant celebrations of beer o’clock and wine o’clock because we both know that dog manspreads all over my pillows when I’m not home, so stop with your weak sauce deradicalization and attempts to make this a skippable topic and by the way, you might want to get it to stop chewing my shoes before it gets hit on the head with this mic drop, mkay?”

  1. Those are some great words. You know, of course, as writers, we have privileges of neologism. I often invent my own words, though usually I nounize verbs or verbize nouns. I read somewhere that there are fifty new words added to the language daily. I wonder how many become extinct.

    1. Jacqui,
      I think you should write an manual – “How to Nounize Verbs and How to Verbize Nouns”. You’ll be famous, wealthy and can buy all the barbacoa for Shari she can eat.

      (Probably the number of extinct words are in direct proportion to the the extinction of people who coined them.)

  2. I can vouch for the taste of barbacoa – first time I tried it, I was hooked – dangerously so. OMG, it is SO good!
    Hangry ought to be in every child raising manual (of course, the idea of child raising manuals ought to raise much discussion)
    Fun post, this one.

  3. I am thankful for “hangry,” a much-needed word in my vocab. But what’s new about “beer o’clock?” That’s been in my dictionary for years, bruh.

      1. Beer o’clock definitely takes the edge off my hangry. After that I just manspread on the couch and watch an Angel’s game, till my wifey gets all cheffy with the barbacoa and the cakeage.
