A mocking description of "creative" misspellings of common words, usually used by idiotic teenagers trying to look "kewl." Vowels are frequently changed, extra letters are either added in or cut out, and similar to "l33t" speak, letters are substituted for similar-looking numbers and characters. There is an illegitimate argument that this is "text messaging" speak, but honestly, how much quicker is it to type "boi" than "boy"?
