Totes ridic! Presh! Amazeballs! Adorbs! Obvs!
Whether words like these make you roll your eyes in recognition or wonder what the hell everyone is talking about (or both), The Totes Ridictionary will help you survive life in a world where text-message abbreviations and Twitter slang are dancing on the grave of the Oxford New English Dictionary.
Everywhere you look in emails, tweets, Facebook posts, text messages, blogs and even real-life conversations Totes Ridicheads are turning words into twee abbrevs, communicating in internet acronyms, and embracing hashtags as a way of life. And, like it or not, sooner or later youll need to become fluent in totes ridicularity.
Packed with hilar illustrations and a satirical glossary thatll help you sort the jel from the awks, correctly identify whats perf and whats tradge, and know how to react if someone describes you as gorge or cray-cray, The Totes Ridictionary takes a totally ridiculous look at what happens when language and technology collide.
"A new book has come into our lives and enriched them beyond our wildest dreams. The Totes Ridictionary
has rewritten some classic pieces of literature, and butchered them with a 'modern twist' - which makes for wondrous reading.”—Cosmopolitan
This is gorge, totes want it. The Totes Ridictionary is cray-cray, its chalk full of every single Twitter-esque verb, noun, adjective, EVERYTHING you need to tweet those 140 characters. This isnt just another million paged dictionary. Move over Oxford, because The Totes Ridictionary is taking your spot and twerking into our hearts and minds.”—Notion Magazine
Web-speak isn't totes ridic it's pure poetry.”—Evening Standard
