I’m pretty sure they speak like that every day. What’s the story here?

Stuff like that irritated the crap out of me when I was a kid. Still does for that matter.

I teach high school and have never heard any of these words. What grade level are they “relating” to?

Well, at least no one tried to Running Man or Cabbage Patch. So I say that’s a win.
