One of my favorite skits from Late Night With Jimmy Fallon was when he and Justin Timberlake spoke out loud using hashtags. It was great because I never really stopped to think about how hashtags sounded out loud, I’m not a Mississippi State fan. Once you hear it though you realize how silly our conversational pasterns have become online. It’s good to see another Late Night skit brought over to The Tonight Show. It’s not as great as the original, but this time it ‘s Jimmy and Jonah hill talking like the kids these days.
It’s the same effect as when someone says LOL in a real conversation… yeah, no. I do wonder though is this our future? Will future generations talk in searchable terms and abbreviations? I have to admit, I’ve heard kids at Walmart say YOLO. (I did not kill these children, according to Leviticus heir deaths are the responsibility of their parents.) I guess I should just give in and join the LOL JK hastag crowd. I mean when a state university is putting hashtags on it’s football field… [cough] Mississippi State [cough] Surely we are living in the end times.
