Vernacular Of The Day 3/29/19: Owo

When people realized that letters could be faces, the world changed forever. We already covered the legendary XD, but how about some lesser known ones? Enter OwO. A face that transcends mood and species. Does it have any relation to :3? No. Does it equivocate to :)? Definitely no. OwO was originally an anime smile, designed to be cute and perhaps mischievous. However, the most popular use for it is for a snarky addition to any text. UwU is a viable alternative, and is even more sarcastic. Other forms include Owo, uwo, and òwó, which is an angry OwO.

Vernacular Of The Day 3/28/18: Yeet

The Yeet Dance!

Yeet is a wonderful word. It is used when:

  1. You launch a object at high velocity
  2. You need a fun thing to say
  3. Something (usually an animal or person) leaves or moves really quickly

Yeet comes from this meme:

It quickly became an internet meme and something that you just say for fun.

(For some reason the actual meaning has nothing to do with the dance, but I can’t really explain how the internet works)

Person: Launches object at high velocity

Friend 1: “What a fun game today!”
Friend 2: “Ya

Person 1: Scares doggo by throwing pillow at it
Person 2: “
XD that doggo was just like YEET!

Yeet can also be used as ya-yeet or yeetus

Vernacular Of The Day 3/25/19: Bork

Bork! Bork! Bork! Bork! Doggos around the world all call out this word in their native language! Will they ever stop? We’ll never know!

Bork is another word for bark, of course the way dogs or Doggos communicate. (Confused about Doggos? Check out the post about them here) The internet sensation Gabe the Dog made borking popular as a way of song, creating many covers of popular hits.

This also created many (bad) internet memes and puns including:

Maybe next time you see a Doggo, you will be willing to communicate to it in it’s traditional language.

Hooman: “Want to go to the park?”

Doggo: “Bork! Bork! Bork!

Vernacular Of The Day 3/24/18: Neck and the Finger Circle

Imagine that you’re hanging out with a friend. Suddenly, they say “What’s that?” and point to the ground. You (foolishly) look at the ground, and see a finger the dreaded finger circle. You know your fate.

The finger circle started as a meme in 2018, and became a symbol that could bring shame to even the most proud. If you ever look at a finger circle, you are subject to “necking” yourself, or being “necked”. (when you “neck” yourself, it is called self serve) This is not as unpleasant as it sounds. You or someone else simply swipes their finger across the back of your neck. Although this does not hurt, it is shameful to have it happen.

Friend One: “What’s that?” (points at ground)

Friend Two: Looks down to see a finger circle

Friend One: “Got that neck!

Vernacular Of The Day 3/22/19: Yee

Let’s say you agree with someone. You have a few options to express your feelings. Yes, okay, and cool are all mediocre. Luckily, there is a more tasteful version of agreeing: Yee. Derived from this TV show clip;

Yee quickly transformed into this meme:

Yee is just another way of saying yes, cool, or that’s lit!

Person 1: “Do you want some Takis?”

Person 2:“Yee”
