When Skyrock decide to launch an instant messenger to keep our skyblogging teenagers even more hooked, they add animated emoticons to it. Neat, huh?
Now, I ask you, what on earth had they smoked when they decided to name them shitleys?
(And it isn’t just bad in English, “shit” is a slang word for “weed” in French.)
This is what our country’s youth will soon be chatting with. I don’t think I’m going to be out of work anytime soon.
