Have you, or someone you know, started a trend with texting something that doesn't really make sense? Like, maybe it started by the result of a typo or something? And now it is what you text...?

Let me give you an example of what I mean....

One time, I texted my Mom something, and she responded with "Okax" instead of "Okay". I replied, "Okax?" And she texted back that it was an accident. biggrin.gif So, ever since then we've responded with "Okax" a lot instead of the regular "Okay". laugh.gif

Now that I've explained it...anybody ever been a part of that kind of thing before, or know somebody that does that with their texts?
I'm curious to see how this turns out. smile.gif

(used the translator for this one, I could possibly work it out, but it would take me ages)

Boring old Engish translation - What is up? I see you at Guitar Master Class at the end of the day. I have a question for you mate? Just wonder why you are reading this rather than playing guitar! Silly waste of money, brains and time, you crack me up!

Even 'Azzaboi' is a nick given to me made up of slang...
'Azza' is internet slang for Aaron
and well 'boi' means somewhere trapped between a boy and a man, but still looks younger than they are or acts in a boyish way. Also it's a crossing of the word bi, someone that may seem bi-sexual... it's more metrosexual (caring over your looks) and normally scoring the gals.
(The gals thought is was cute kk, gees curse you Justin Beeb for destroying that image, lol - I had the name before he was around - he's also labeled as a boi)

If Brandon starts creating new stuff the world will be in chaos in another few years biggrin.gif lol

Todays youth isn't as wasteful as you older generation! We know the value of a few cents - CANDY!!!

We sacifist readablility for saving back on the number of txts - *mutters* even with monthly unlimited txts... *mutters*

Just imagine a gal txting 1000s+ messages a day to all her friends about junk and what not and then multiply that by 3 or 4 times for not using shorthand and unreadable slang! Then multiple that by the thousands of replies! Then entire mobile network would come crashing down to it's knees!

"Throws candy wrapper on the ground and sticks the chewed bubble gum under the table."

Just remember it's all about saving the planet!
