Bill Safire slangin' the phat rimes fo' shizzle

WASHINGTON 'Fo'shizzle, I'm going to get hella crunk tonight." The first slang word is a variant of "for sure"; the second, hella, is an adjective meaning "very, a lot, really," perhaps a clip of "helluva." But the word that's sweeping the high-school halls and college campuses is crunk, a blend of "crazy" and "drunk," which has elbowed aside wasted, just as faded has replaced stoned. A hard drinker, loud but not yet a crunk, is a daunch.

Most of the stuff in this article seems kinda stalish, not really all that. It is quite that though to see Bill Safire shakin' it so.
