Fake ID - Lamar Giles, L.R. Giles

W...T...F...

 

 

Hero and friend are texting. Here's the transcript:

 

"Me: What's da Urethra Gauntlet?
Eli: Urilium Gauntlet. U got my message.
Me: I got it. What wuz it?
...
Me: Like Warcraft?
Eli: Hellz no."

 

 

 

"Wuz"? "Hellz"? I thought text speak was supposed to make things shorter, not longer. Why go for "wuz" when "was" has the same number of letters? Why add a "z" after "hell" at all?

 

 

Is this how teens text now????
