I pride myself on being a particularly articulate person. Apparently, I even enunciate when I swear. However, I must admit a certain seduction that lolspeak and l33t speak have with me. The ability to compress an emotion or action into a few simple characters is amazing. Some have even begun to pervade spoken language. I like lulz quite a bit. It conveys a somewhat sarcastic yet sincere emotion.
Using Stumbleupon, I came across a gem of a story told without words. I now retell it.
