It's kind of makes me think that you're making fun of younger people but you're also still trying to be down with the kids.

It makes me cringe each time I see it on here.

But then I also chringe when I see the word "fred" and "quiche"

Someone posted a photo on Facebook, and captioned it - what peng weather we're having.

I had to stop myself from commenting ... no-one says peng anymore. Especially people over the age of 15.

i've never come across 'peng' what does that mean?

Peng ... good looking etc.

So peng weather would be really good weather.

But it's being down the yoof, innit?

(Someone had to say it.)

I say innit, in a kind of piss takey way.

I like to say Peng to wind up my DS.

BlondeLuxLisbon Fri 05-Apr-13 15:38:03

That's the kind of why I mean usual

It's like piss taking but still trying to be cool. It just makes me cringe.

usualsuspect Fri 05-Apr-13 15:39:23

I am cool, Bro.

TWinklyLittleStar Fri 05-Apr-13 15:44:47

YANBU. And it should be 'yoot' anyway.

I'm 33 today. I've been saying innit for at least 18 years.

usualsuspect Fri 05-Apr-13 15:58:04

Yes, innit is not exactly a new word.

some people say quiche instead of clique on here.

I have no idea why or why it's even remotely funny.

And people use the fred instead of thread

- is this a fred about fred? - Hilarious.

TheCunnyFuntIsAGrittersFiancee Fri 05-Apr-13 19:39:42

I know innit.

I had no idea what the quiche thing was about. You learn something new every day grin.
