We briefly interrupt this blog to bring you the following fast-breaking news flash:
Google declares that the Our Shiputzim blog is the world’s leading authority on Israeli teenager slang.
Okay. Maybe they didn’t say that EXACTLY.
Not in so many words, anyway.
But if one does a search for teenager Israeli slang, one discovers that this blog comes in first. (Go ahead – see for yourself.)
Which, IMHO, suggests that Google believes that no one knows more about this subject than I do.
Of course, the ironic part is that the aforementioned search leads to my post about Facebook statuses*, which – as anyone who has actually read it knows – discusses the fact that neither I nor any other Anglo parent understands Israeli teenager slang.
However, if the erudite Rav Google holds that I’m “big in” (excuse my Yeshivish) this field, who am I, a lowly and humble J-blogger, to argue?
And, so, the next time you need some information about Israeli teenager slang, please don’t hesitate to ask me.
I’ll gladly refer you to a certain well-known search engine for details…
*BTW, I wrote a follow-up to my initial Facebook post here.
