It’s A Different Language. Innit?

sup-cat

I received a text the other day that began “sup”. No grammar. No context. And it took me a little while to work out what “sup” meant. It wasn’t until I’d read the entire text, which consisted of three sentences, to work out what “sup” meant.

It’s obvious now. Sup = what’s up? An abbreviation of “what’s up”. It’s like “Hello” but cooler – allegedly. The person who sent me the text is too young to remember the “Whassup” adverts.

Apparently this is how young people start conversations these days.

Bare sick. Sup.
