If you think that cellphone-speak is an arcane corruption of the english language, you will appreciate this episode where we cover how cyber babble got it start and how it continues to proliferate online.  Ever since the first woncs started noodling around with computer code there has been a disconnect between the way they communicate with one another and the Queen's English.  As different as the language was back in Shakespeare's day to the present idiom, the question is one of whether cyber babble is just a flash in the pan, or whether it represents a true evolution in our mother tongue.  So if you don;t know a serp from an alt tag, this this is the episode for you.  omg lol
