This teen slang quiz is not for noobs

It’s time for another quiz, parents. Since the social media quiz was such a big hit, here’s one to help you understand what your kids are saying. Just like last time, this probably won’t work if you’re on your phone, so come back to it later when you’re at home, or use the boring, typed version down below. There’s no prize for the best score, so don’t cheat. Feel free to comment with your scores, or other slang words you’d like to have defined for you. Have fun!

Though I’m not a fan of current slang like swag/swaggy or YOLO, I definitely don’t miss the days of adding -izzle to the end of everything (as if “fo sho” wasn’t slang enough and needed to be fo’shizzle).

Also, this current crop of youngsters might benefit from some studying the past and go back to things like gnarly, rad, tubular, no duh, or–if they have enough confidence–the bee’s knees and the cat’s pajamas.

I can’t believe I didn’t read carefully enough and clicked “you only love once” instead of “live”… could’ve had a 100. geez. Not that I’m competitive or anything.
