Freedom of Speech

My teenage daughter has informed me of four words or phrases which I am not allowed to utter in her hearing. In a vain attempt to, like, relate to the kids, I made the mistake of using one of these words in the course of, like, a conversation, you know.

As a result, my right to free speech has been curbed.

My banned words, with definitions for the oldies like me, are as follows:

  • meh [not sure, don't mind; from the French boff]
  • lol [of course I would only use this term in ridicule, so I'm not too disappointed about this one]
  • owned [publicly shamed, corrected or defeated in verbal combat]
  • nube [novice or inexperienced person]
So, I'm like, owned for being such a nube. Oh well. Meh. LOL!

"newb" being derived from the word "newbie" is the typical spelling.

Mabye the license should have been revoked?

Kidding. I say you pick up as many of the latest phrases and create your own uber-teen lexicon.
