:D

wth would kids wanna act ghetto? that's just stupid... don't they know they're from middle to upper class white family?

acting ghetto is something that is not limited to kids... back in the day, it wasn't uncommon for rich white people to go to jazz clubs, so they could feel like they were "slumming it".

it is becoming common (so i heard on the morning radio show i listen to) that middle/high class yuppies are attending Ozzfest because of the Osbournes on MTV.

that's not really acting ghetto though.

no, but it shows that to this day adults are still 'slumming it'.

"A'ight" is used in a few rap songs, but that's about the extent of it. Not really in common ebonic vernacular.

I used to mock those who used abbreviations on AIM, then I moved and have been without web access at home and have been using my cell phone for AIM, trust me,when you're trying to type an IM on a cell phone those abbreviations don't seem so bad, lol :D

Haha! I like that one... (but it doesn't make sense to put it in an away message)

Okay, just for you we'll modify it to say:

I'm currently busy at the moment... I'm giving/getting head thoroughly (ight).
