the OMG-ification of america

Like OMG, this country has disintegrated into text shorthand in a way that's strangely thrilling to me.

I'm amused that grownups are willing to sling around the WTFs and the ROLFs like a bunch of tweens who have discovered you can neglect your webkins to death.

two years ago, adults would only exchange the letters OMG if they were trading stock in the Cleveland-based chemical company. Today, they make it the subject line of an email about "the coffee in the breakroom is all jacked up, yo"

The only thing worse than OMG is SOMG

I blame Paris.
