There is a trend in popular speech that’s not only slightly annoying, it’s more revealing than we might realize.  It says some unflattering things about us.  So if you recognize yourself in this video, it’s probably time to make some changes.  Learn to speak with some conviction.

On the other hand, of course, no Christian can use this as an excuse for harsh or unkind speech.

Remind them to be submissive to rulers and authorities, to be obedient, to be ready for every good work, to speak evil of no one, to avoid quarreling, to be gentle, and to show perfect courtesy toward all people.  (Titus 3:1-2; see also verses 3-11)

Let no corrupting talk come out of your mouths, but only such as is good for building up, as fits the occasion, that it may give grace to those who hear.  (Ephesians 4:29)

This video is a dramatic reading and, more specifically, a typography animation of Taylor Mali‘s poem, “Totally like whatever, you know?”  (Thanks for pointing it out, C.L.)
