Slang, n.

"The grunt of the human hog (Pignoramus intolerabilis) with an audible memory. The speech of one who utters with his tongue what he thinks with his ear, and feels the pride of a creator in accomplishing the feat of a parrot. A means (under Providence) of setting up as a wit without a capital of sense." (Bierce)

Now NW, with toe-tapping grunts from Bubba, Dr. Disco! Astounding. About the only thing more obnoxious, pointless, and juvenile than the muzak would be the jinglejangle lyrics: Space Disco Nostalgia hour.
