Dang, Dawg!

Children of this generation appear to be confused. Two days ago, I was at Dairy Queen enjoying a tasty treat. I overheard a lanky white girl, roughly 14 years old, shout across the room to her small group of white female friends "Dang, dawg!" She had a heavy South Texas accent and sounded completely ridiculous. Her outburst was followed by normal discourse. Her friends didn't call her out on it or anything. They just accepted it as normal speech. I couldn't help but think, "damn, that girl is wack!"
