    I have a young (18) cousin doing this exact thing on every second Facebook status at the moment. It's taking every ounce of self control...!

    I just saw the word Sponcer. I think they meant sponsor And yes, it had a capital S. In the middle of a sentence

    That's funny because I am a little bit obsessed with Words With Friends and the other day it accepted "youse" which makes me want to do similar things with forks
