One of the most important aspects of YIP culture and babble is
mockery. As mentioned in January's "Jesus Humour" editorial, some
of the favored topics are those which are taken seriously, such as
religion, women's rights, political correctness, etc. A quick
glance through either the Babbler's Handbook or the Dictionary of
Islingtonisms will reveal much of our vocabulary to have originated
in mockery. From rap music, terms such as cheebah, funky, moonyah,
the ghetto, goin' straight, due payin' and many others. From BBS
pirates, terms such as k00l (and variants thereof), d00d, warez,
lamer, leech, ELiTE, balcklist, l8r, u/l, d/l, etc. From various
mockee's: ...ROCK!, dryz, bowling, T2, NOT!, affectionate purr,
grins, I feel a bagel coming on, tomorrow's Saturday, totally rad,
2 legit 2 quit, your mother, ...unless you're some kind of faggot,
wink (and other varieties of sexual innuendo) and dozens more.
Many of these terms have become so commonplace within YIP
that they are taken at face value. Please keep in mind that we
were ORIGINALLY just mocking other people.
