Life is all about the Banter

Howdy Toasters,        Life is all about the banter, it’s pretty simple when you think about it. Banter is like the jumping castle we wish we all had in our backyard (or is that just me?).

Totally Confusified! (warning: this is a bit ridiculous)

Howdy Toasters! Has anyone else noticed the bastardisation of the modern day articulization?  I myself am totes guilterous of throwing the odd portmanteau and words of my own construct into my language in the pursuit of more colourful ways to communicate but one has to ask..what would the purists say? What would John Dunne think in this pinteresting, spacebooky, twitterific,linkedup world?
