101 years in 101 words
Lest I forget. The BBC has a Lovely article listing new words that became hot over the past 100 years. They’re challenging readers to use those 101 words in a story, using at maximum 150 words total. I made it and submitted my entry.
I contracted phrases that were considered one word in the BBC competition (generation X became generationX, etc).
Here it is:

OKyah?
Meanwhile, fabulous kitsch pop celeb DNA genes were havingitlarge, powerdressing in punk acid toyboy Wonderbras, sexedup mobile kittenheels and cool ghetto trainers. A snafu.
Responding, hip dunk wizards karaoked tiddlyompompom with whizzo egghead MickeyMouse, a beatbox, on Botox in detox: “cheerio bagel, latte, spliff.”
Molotovcocktail Blitzkriegs, cruisemissiles and hiphop boogie lovein on 9/11 resulted in the hippy drivein, fastfood nonU hypermarket blues on civvystreet and demobbed U-boat. The chav?
To doubleclick the green realpolitik from a Trekkie Watergate into a sacredcow naffall, Google, with It-girl, tailspinned the suddendeath pesticide into a blingbling ceasefire. The sex buzz URL gone, the microchip applet neutralised, only the megabucks cheeseburger saved the BigApple teddybear from saying the Fword.
