    Does this mean hip-hop slang is now part of the King's English?

    You know what's sad. When I read the title I figured Crack-ho and Hoochie was the name of a band kinda like The Captain and Tenille. I think I officially just became old.

    DEBuckeye It ain't easy, bein' cheesy.

    "Crack ho and Hoochie" sounds like a cartoon character duo, like Bugs Bunny and Daffy Duck.

    Was that the Oxford's Ebonic Dictionary referred to in the story?

    Not to sound insensitive but since I'm so deep in the red right now, I don't care who I offend.


    I absolutely hate two things that I hear on a daily basis from my African American students.

    One thing is when they say," Can I axe you a question?" I correct his one every time.

    The other is, "Do you have 25 cent?" They use the singular form instead of saying "cents." I correct that as well. The sad thing is that you meet their parents at parent teacher conferences and realize that they get it from their parents.

    The English language is just going to hell in a handbasket.

    All hail Sir Thump, defender of the King's English. Thou hast brought great honour to thyself and thine family.
