I can be snarky. If you can't take it, suck it up, buttercup.

Not my favourite way of describing it, but I'm a Spoonie.

I’m confused. Do you mean the city or the animal?

slang (n.)
1756, “special vocabulary of tramps or thieves,” later “jargon of a particular profession” (1801), of uncertain origin, the usual guess being that it is from a Scandinavian source, such as Norwegian slengenamn “nickname,” slengja kjeften “to abuse with words,” literally “to sling the jaw,” related to Old Norse slyngva “to sling.” But OED, while admitting “some approximation in sense,” discounts this connection based on “date and early associations.” Liberman also denies it, as well as any connection with French langue (or language or lingo). Rather, he derives it elaborately from an old slang word meaning “narrow piece of land,” itself of obscure origin. Century Dictionary says “there is no evidence to establish a Gipsy origin.” Sense of “very informal language characterized by vividness and novelty” first recorded 1818.

[S]lang is a conscious offence against some conventional standard of propriety. A mere vulgarism is not slang, except when it is purposely adopted, and acquires an artificial currency, among some class of persons to whom it is not native. The other distinctive feature of slang is that it is neither part of the ordinary language, nor an attempt to supply its deficiencies. The slang word is a deliberate substitute for a word of the vernacular, just as the characters of a cipher are substitutes for the letters of the alphabet, or as a nickname is a substitute for a personal name. [Henry Bradley, from “Slang,” in “Encyclopedia Britannica,” 11th ed.]

A word that ought to have survived is slangwhanger (1807, American English) “noisy or abusive talker or writer.”

Sorry, intarwebs. Slang isn’t a compression of “shortened language”.

this actually makes sense. 
people go ‘why does God let bad things happen?’
its because while some poor bastards are being herded into a mass grave somewhere God is busy making sure Kathy in Dunghole, Wisconsin has exactly the right amount of milk for her recipe.
you gotta pick your battles

I am literally crying now.

Don’t worry. Since she’s too stupid to know what the meniscus is, God actually punished her by leaving her at least 2 tablespoons of milk short and probably made her recipe turn out too dry.
WHY DO BAD THINGS HAPPEN TO GOOD PEOPLE?!?!
