The Totes Ridictionary
"Totes ridic! Presh! Amazeballs! Adorbs! Obvs!"
Whether 'words' like these make you roll your eyes in recognition or wonder what the hell everyone is talking about (or both), "The Totes Ridictionary" will help you survive life in a world where text-message abbreviations and Twitter slang are dancing on the grave of the "Oxford New English Dictionary."
Everywhere you look - in emails, tweets, Facebook posts, text messages, blogs and even real-life conversations - Totes Ridicheads are turning words into twee 'abbrevs', communicating in internet acronyms, and embracing hashtags as a way of life. And, like it or not, sooner or later you'll need to become fluent in totes ridicularity.
Packed with 'hilar' illustrations and a satirical glossary that'll help you sort the 'jel' from the 'awks', correctly identify what's 'perf' and what's 'tradge', and know how to react if someone describes you as 'gorge' or 'cray-cray', "The Totes Ridictionary" takes a totally ridiculous look at what happens when language and technology collide.
