It's getting hot in here...

You know, there's those people who find it "kewt" to type "kewl" and replace -r's and -l's with w's eg "sowwy" and "hewwo". Now this is just ghei firstly, and secondly, when grown adults do this it works on my nerves (my magnanimous streak does however extend only to people who are around the age of 12-16 who do this because alas, they were not fully alive while the world and the internet was still awesome and not filled with twits), and thirdly, there is absolutely nothing more off putting than (consciously) horrific spelling and grammar.

I got this in an email from a person who brims with awesomeness and smells like teen spirit :P, with the most apt subject line ever (see below):

If you laugh, you're going to hell:





Suffice to say (before you get your panties in a knot and go all moral high ground on me)...I guess you can all queue up behind me?

Trust me, these are supposed adults, and it kills me that even with a spell check they manage to fuck it up

i hAtE tHiS KiNd oF TyPiNg MoSt (this took me 1 minute to type), then comes bloody baby talk.

There was this girl my cousin used to chat to, I feel sorry for her discarded braincells. She used to say cAuZ for cos and other mutilations of the English language.

The worst lot when business people e-mail and never bother to check the spelling or rather mis-spelt words.

People who use MWAH and baby talk just annoy me, please speak / type in English or forever hold your peace!!

Thank you for this post. I thought the pic was funny so do miss me in heaven. I totally agre about IM language - I get the need to abbreviate but what exactly is the point of hewwo istead of hello? It's not shorter, it's just irritating.

The internet has always been filled with twits. Programmers have a basic disdain for formal language.

You are beautiful. You inspire the kind of affection, that in that strange obsessive way, drove Ophelia mad and suicidal and led Devdas to his rotting-liver consumption-bloodied death.

And you blush in the most disarming way.

kewl. i wuv that stuff. kewl pic 2. i wuv making fun of other ppl's mis fortune... oh fuck i can't handle this any more.. it was supposed to be sarcastic and I just got irritated half way.

I believe we should place the people who create pictures with such awful humour into a little category called "Emotionally Retarded". bear in mind these are probably the same people who have a ton of problems in their relationships. Point made.

@Waseem you get scripts which alter the case of your text for you. Sorry I used to be a IRc addict with my own script. I can alter colours and text replace actual workds like "hello" with "hewwo"... it's like being the irritating IRC kiddie idiot without all the hard work :P

hehehhe... that God for growing up. :) I guess you only understand it once you were in it.
