Tragically Hip Replacement

I got every question right on this slang trivia quiz, which means, of course, that all of the slang used in the quiz is hopelessly passé. Yeah, sure, there were one or two terms that gave me pause (never heard anyone use “aggro” to mean “upset” before), but most of the “new” slang was positively ancient: who doesn’t know what “bogart,” “jonesing,” “dis,” and “benjamins” mean? The fact that these terms are included in an online quiz is a sure sign that none of the cool kids are using them anymore.
