If you don’t know what a Valley Girl means, well then, you’re “like” a “totally” stupid person because Valley Girls are “like” all over the place “you know” and you have met one but you’re not “like” “shur” because you’re like “majorly” clueless as to what a Valley Girl is!
“Oh my god”, that’s “like” “sooo lame!”…
Ok, so Valley Girl Talk has been around since “like” “for-ever”! More “like” since the ’80s or “somethin'”. I’m not quite “shur” but yeah, it is fairly common back then and until “like” now. If you see a group of “betches” who talk “like“, like they’re in the set of the classic [???] movie “Clueless” or they sound like “Britt’ny and Tiff’ny Wilson from White Chicks”, then that’s Valley Girl Talk! “
“Like, Oh My God”, can’t they “like” construct a proper sentence or “somethin'”! “Yeah”, it’s “totally” crazy! “Like”, they don’t know that they sound stupid! “Seriously”, they’re bimbos, that’s “fer shur”!!! “What-ever”! “Totally Major Losers!”
Valley Girls, “like”, like to use the word “like”. I mean, “duh”, don’t they ever get tired of the word? “Seriously”! “Hellooo”, there are other synonyms for “like”, “you know”! For instance, if you wish to denote something that possesses the same or almost the same characteristics, you might want to substitute the words “analogous” or “similar” for “like”. But then again, the sentence “You want me to “like” go and ask him out?” wouldn’t sound right if you say “You want me to “analogous” go and ask him out?” Or if you say “That dress is similar sooo last year!” instead of “That dress is “like” sooo last year!” — then you wouldn’t sound like a coherent person, right? But that’s just it, by using “like” in almost every imaginable part of a sentence, you appear grammatically ignorant or worse, mentally challenged. Thereby, relegating yourself to the level of a toddler or thereabouts.
