Whoa rhyming slang makes no sense!

n. Pronounced (E-Eng-lish): The current and rapidly growing form of the English language, beginning c.1980 (postdating old, middle, and modern english), that has resulted from mass public use of electronic communication such as email and text-messaging.
adj. of or related to any word whose origins are directly rooted in electronic forms of communication.
Whereas slang has traditionally hampered communication between old and young generations, many people now additionally struggle to understand the rapidly changing and somewhat cryptic eenglish spoken by those who have grown up with computers.
A form of the English language, mostly inhabited by African-Americans. Most commonly confused with friendly slang such as "wassup" and "hey how you doin'". Ebonics has a historical background, mostly underappreciated by uneducated 'Crombie guys. During the times of early slavery, it was spoken mostly in the south as an alternate language to English, since their own native languages were forbidden. It has since survived centuries of change and been altered into today's form of african-american slang.
Ebonics: "Ayo wassup ma, damn yous lookin fly why dont you let me holla atchu for a hot minute"
Proper English: "Hello, miss, you are looking very beautiful. I was wondering if you could possibly spare a minute of your time so that I could get to know you better."
Old (southern) Ebonics: "Whyontchu brin dem oba here an let meh getcha sum colta drin yous been werkin eba sin da sun done come awn up, yous gonna hurchoself likeat."
Proper English: "Why don't you bring those over here and let me get you a cold beverage. You have been working diligently since sunrise. This is not good for your health."

The modern-day raping, deconstruction, and reconstitution of our cherished idioms and expressions. For example, "Back in the good old days," has become, "Back in the day." Suggesting that there was only one day in existence prior to the present. And "I don't believe you just did that," has become "Oh, no you didn't," which is meaningless because, obviously, they have indeed.
The ebonification of the age-old expression has rendered it nonsensical.
