Everyone and their mothers are doing brackets this time of year because March is about creatively piggybacking the virile young men and handsome young women playing in basketball tournaments. Not one to be left out, I’ve created my own tournament (ignoring the fact that I am running another one already) of great import. Seeing as the use of inane abbreviations is not limited to teenagers who don’t know any better, I thought it would be useful to allow adults to see just how horrible they sound when they use these linguistic reductions.
I’m not very skilled in graphic design but I do own a ruler and a Sharpie, so I ran with it.
Here are your competitors in their seeded order:
Totes (as in “totally”)
Whatevs (as in “whatever”)
Guac (as in “guacamole”)
Margs (as in “margaritas”)
Peeps/Tweeps (as in “people”/”Twitter people,” respectively)
Jelly (as in “jealous”)
Ridic (as in “ridiculous”)
Apps (as in “appetizers” not “applications”)
Cray (as in “crazy”)
Adorbs (as in “adorable”)
Preggers (as in “pregnant”)
Vacay (as in “vacation”)
Abbrevs (as in “abbreviations”)
Obvi (as in “obviously”)
Def (as in “definitely”)
Probs (as in “probably”)
