‘Slang is a subject that provokes strong emotions. If you use slang, you run the risk of being judged crass, uneducated, stupid, or hopelessly out of date, but the rewards are great: used correctly, slang will ease your entry into the social circles you want to mix in, increase your attractiveness to the opposite sex, and even save your life.’ – The Life of Slang
