Linguistic Pet Peeve #347

Dear human race:

When something doesn't make sense to you, or seems a might unexpected, the best response is not "ohhhh-... (wait for it) ... KYAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAHHHHHYYYYYYYYY...", especially when accompanied by an eye-roll hard enough to cause permanent muscular damage.

It makes you sound like the Nutless Douchebag Prince of the Ages. Oh-KAAAAAAAAAAAAY? =D

Depends on the situation, really.  Colloquial exclusion of pronouns aside, I tend to ask for an explanation if I don't understand something, as I've noticed it's slightly more conducive to learning and understanding.  In jest and satire, however--especially amongst friends--I've been known to fabricate a wide assortment of random noises, phrases, and interjections.  In those -really- stressful, sudden moments, my brain forgoes logical responses and expletives altogether and just shoves out the first thing that was sitting on my verbal platter.

*a swarm of bees comes zooming at me carrying a load of nuclear weapons, spurred on by my ex from high school*  WHOA DARRRN!!!  *as I seizure my way to anywhere other than here at mach 12*  ;-)

Well, that's because you don't take the easy way out and default to "oh, I don't understand this, so that means it's weird and dumb". ;P

I thought it made them sound like airhead teenyboppers. Even the men, somehow.

I hate to sound snarky here, but:

The Eighties called, they want their sarcastic eye roll back.

(ring, ring)

Hello?

Oh, hi there, Eighties.  What, you want your 'The Eighties called,' joke back too?  Ohhhhhh-kayyyyyy.





(sorry, think I got stuck in a time warp joke loop there)

Nah, that's okay, they've got enough "whut-EVAAAAAAHHHRRR" to last 'em awhile.
