Ronnie Meh-hi-co yo ass is grass. You shud-nuh made this thread muh nig...

edit: nah for real tho the OTC lounge is home to 2 true life thugs. Wagna and IversonMelo2k7. These boys are so thuggish they go out at night and intentionally buy expensive jewelry in HOPES that someone will try to jump them and they can see some action.

The boogie man checks under his bed every night for Chuck Norris, but Chuck Norris checks his closet every night for Wagna and IversonMelo2k7

My favorites are the ones who say "dawg" and "gawd"... they're so cute I want to just punt them like Jack Black did Baxter...

I agree. Pronunciation and dialect are some things over time that you just can't help. But purposely posting like a dumb thug wannabe gangster and butchering words for the sake of coming off as "real" is beyond stupid. In a place where intellect is respected wit will win the race I don't understand why somebody would purposely dumb down just because they think it looks cool. Some guys, in some of their posts it works. Some fake it and others are just too ignorant to know any better.

funny story:


back in high school, there were a lot of wig gers around. I liked to bust their chops and continuously ridicule them for being retards and useless scum to society against their constant "death threats" ( )


once there is this kid named Arthur, who went by ARThug, and he said his name stood for A Real Thug.

one day:

hey Arthur, you go to the semi formal? lotta chicks there huh? you must have gotten your fair share right?

yo dawg, wtf you gotta always be on mah case ni gga? accept it dawg, im phat!

you're kinda chubby, but not really fat...

nah son, PHAT! P-H-A-T. ever heard of it?

but phat means "physically attractive" in the urban areas. specifically P ussy hips ass ****. are you saying you are an attractive woman?

yo imma kill you son.

okay sure w/e.

next day:

hey arthur. what's going on? not phat anymore?

man stfu. how the f uck did you know phat meant physically attractive? im more hood than you. wtf?

you live in the suburbs sh itsack. youre not from the hood.

That wasn't the least bit funny. If you want to be a egocentric bigot, at least be witty about it.

Everyone is trying to get a personality on the boards; they want to be recognized for something. I guess chopping up words and ignoring gs makes them special.

... though it is kinda funny to talk like that every once in a while; when something awakes the ghetto in you.
