teens and slang

Seems like teens have their own language, I like to refer to it as slanguage. Here's a few things one might hear from teens now a days.

- Means cool or awesome.

Bowen- A person who often stinks, possibly with hygene issues. Derived from a creature that is known to inhabit sewage and have a frightening odor because it uses its own feces to disguise itself.

Butt hurt- to be hypersensitive or over offended over a prank or joke. (my daughter uses this one all the time)

Hardcore - Means something is intense. Generally said about something that is a good experience, but also used when something bad is happening to a friend.

all up in my grill- the act of being in someone's face.

hella- used in conjunction with another word as an intensifier. As if to say “very.” Derived from “A hell of a lot of . . .” Examples include: hella-cool, hella-stupid, hella-crazy, or hella-funny.

bamf- Acronym for “Bad Ass Mutha F***er."

tool- someone that is a geek or nerd; one who is socialy inept and does not fit it.

idk- short for “I don’t know”

wikijism- A term to describe any journalism, reports or writing that uses Wikipedia as it's only source.

my bad- a phrase said to admit guilt in a situation.

beatin' dem cakes- having sex. "I got with Juana and was beatin’ dem cakes like Betty Crocker!"
