Ok Boomer – You don’t understand internet syntax

Ok Boomer – You don’t understand internet syntax

So not to sound like that guy that screams at the kids to get off his lawn, but sometimes that is how I feel when I read comments on my YouTube channel.

I mean look at the comments.

Some comments are written in what can only be described as ancient hieroglyphics 🤔🔥💜🤣👀📽. Others have no vowels so they sound like someone with hiccups was smashing the keyboard as air escapes from their lungs. Some comments seem like they were typed by a stenographer who is trying to record wrong answers to 7-across in a crossword puzzle.

I asked my 17-year-old what is going with kids these days – a sentence I never thought I would utter at another human being. She just laughed and pointed me toward this Tumblr post.

So for all your literate people who are just as dumbfounded, and frankly a little concerned,  here are the different Internet Syntax that you will encounter – don’t be alarmed (oh there might be some F bombs in here too for anyone sensitive to that please stop reading now)
