A word used by spoiled teenage girls who listen to Justin Timberlake, wear Abercrombie and Fitch, and watch the Real World. It is often inserted in between every word, because the lack of mental capacity of this person does not allow them to string together a complete sentence.
I hate sellouts, MTV, you, and people who say like more than once in a sentence.

1.A word that is inserted randomly into a sentence. Most people use it just because they're used to it, even some English teachers, and they won't use it when writing but will say it without meaning to. It used to be what you said instead of "um" but not people are so used to it they say,"Like, um..."

2."so I was all like" means "I said"
1.So I went to the mall and there was this, like, really cute shirt. And I, like, asked how much it cost.

2.So the guy was all like,"You should use proper english and say 'I said'," and I was like,"Don't, like, tell me how to talk..."
