random bastardization

The internet influences us in different ways, through language and its usage. I am amazed at the things that have filtered into my own language. Things that were once inside jokes I have internalized into my common usage. It is absolutely ridiculous and absolutely scary.
Some things I will write down knowing what they are, chuckling, and press send without correcting. Words that would get a laugh from my friends but others do not have the context so they do not get it. They just think its a mistake or perhaps they just think that I am an idiot. Unwords, nonwords, and random slang, online and offline. Random language bastardization can be loads of fun but it can also be dangerous.
