7 Social Media Spellings That Need To Die By Fire

September 3, 2020

Full Form: Tomorrow

Only 5 year olds who have lisps and have been punched in the mouth because of said lisp should be pronouncing shit like this.

Full Form: Cool

I can’t explain it but people who spell the word “cool” like this also eat expired gala and hot Gulder while chilling in uncompleted buildings. Interpret this however you want.

Full Form: Coming

This one is insane because “cumming” was already a well-known slang for ejaculation when Nigerians began using it as a regular word. Even more insane is that both the actual word and the “short form” are the same length. So wtf was really the point?

Full Form: Laugh Wan Kill Me Die

Nothing is that funny. Stop lying.

Full Form: Alternate form of “sup,” and short form of “What’s Up?”

I guess you could say this started with “xmas” but the full form of that is long enough to justify a short form. “Sup” already exists. Why this?

Full Form: Happy Birthday

If you plan to send me this on my birthday, don’t. Also, do me a favour and never speak to me again. Because I don’t want to be in contact with anyone who thinks shit like this is cute.

Full Form: How Are You?

Just stop it.
