Semi-Annoying Trends in Slangular Writing

These are just going to get MORE annoying with overuse.

1) THIS. If you're too lazy to click on the Urban Dictionary link...it says:

One-word response placed after a quote on a message board as an affirmation of the author's agreement with the quoted person's view or opinion. Commonly used on Fark.com.

2) Saying a thing, and then "because" (either the thing or another thing). E.g.: "I love this bacon cupcake, because bacon!" "Your calculation is incorrect, and you should fix it, because MATH."

Speaking of lazy, I lifted this from my Facebook status. I thought I'd start off on aWMD by half-assing it. But I guarantee that I will add to this list. Because annoying trends!

    Why provide reasons when you can just "because"? Brilliant.
