“Like wow, dude. I wonder what the prize was.”
“Prize for what, dude?”
“For winning the New Word of the Year Award, dude!”
“They’re giving out awards for new words? Who is?”
“The, um, New Oxford American Dictionary, says here.”
“Somebody’s sales projections are down, I see. So what’s the word?”
“Tolkien, schmolkien, dude. Facebook’s where it’s at these days. Some dude gets obnoxious, and you wanna kick him outa your space, you click a button and unfriend him. It’s new, and it’s gnarly.”
“I thought that was defriend, dude, not unfriend.”
“But, dude, I want to have a D friend.”
“Only if she comes by it naturally, dude. And she doesn’t keep her personality where you appear to be keeping your brains.”
“Dude, that’s unfriendly!”
“Go ahead, dude. You think you can push that button faster than I can, you got another think coming!”
