Like Is The New Crack Cocaine

I'm pretty sure these posters are fake but they've been floating around the blogosphere today and either way, they're pretty funny. Something called Acadamy of Linguistic Awarness [sic] (no website) wants to warn you against the dangers of compulsively using the word "like." As Cathy and Paul from California have discovered, you could risk losing the respect of your peers, your opportunity to graduate for college or even your lover. Anyone know what the fine print says?

I thought it was only Americans who did that thing with the excessive use of like, right now, y'know, okay?*

Does it happen in .ca as well? I can tell ya that in England, most of the time, the worst that happens is some goon says 'mate' every third word. Although I once did work for a guy who was much worse than a goon. Every third sentence contained the phrase 'at the end of the day'. Sometimes at the beginning, for emphasis. Sometimes at the end, because he didn't have a clue as to what point he was trying to make, so he'd just wrap up the sentence with it. I was hoping to catch him out using the following sentence, but I didn't stick around long enough: "At the end of the day, it's the end of the day. You know what I mean?"

Sorry I don't know what the fine print says.

* not facetious, bloody sarcastic!
