The girl asked her mom to decode some of the common Gen Z slang and she tried her best but also gave viewers some moments of laughter.
Boomers sometimes find it really hard to decode the ever-evolving slang formed by Gen Z people. Many a time, Gen Xers, or even millennials, are left scratching their heads, struggling to understand the meaning of nuanced expressions that the younger generation uses for communication. This gap in communication can lead to humorous situations. TikTok influencer @jalyn.ruszin shared a hilarious video where she tells her mother about various Gen-Z slang terms and asks her to guess what they mean.
In the video, we get to see the mother-daughter duo facing the camera and the daughter having a list of slang terms that she lists out. She starts off by asking her mother, "Alright mom, what do you think 'rizz' means?" The mother is evidently confused to hear this and funnily suggests that she thought it was a "WWE character," which her daughter is shocked to hear. She guesses that the term was used to describe someone who was "cool."
The daughter explains that the term meant someone who "had game." The next slang, "Cuh" has the mother even more dumbfounded and she hilariously reveals that she has no idea what it means. The daughter shares that guys mostly used it to refer to their friends. She states another slang term "Cap" and says, "What do you think 'Cap' means? You gotta know this." The mother is quick to answer and mentions that it means someone was lying, she also added why people didn't just say they were lying.
After this, the daughter asks her what she thought "Bussin" meant. She gives an example, saying, "Like that food's bussin." This particular one was easy for the mother and she says, "Obviously, good." The girl moves on to the next slang which is "Mid." The mother quickly replies that it means someone is ugly. Up next, she asks her, "What do you think 'Delulu' means?" The mother's guess is close by saying that it was someone who was crazy.
The daughter clarifies that it was usually used by girls when they were describing their relationships. The daughter then asks her, "What do you think 'Gas' means?" She replies, "Maybe, it means good then?" She moves on to the next word which happens to be "Slay" and expects her mother to know what it means. She ventures a guess that it was used to describe something that was good, but the daughter asks for a more specific definition.
The daughter explains that it was more enthusiastic, but the mother funnily enough does not look very convinced. She continues, "What do you think 'ong' means?" The mother thinks that it has something to do with someone who mistyped "omg" but the daughter specifies that it actually meant "On god." She accurately guesses the meaning of "tripping" which means someone is crazy.
The next term, "Yer/Yur," proves to be one of the most confusing for the mother and the daughter shares that she also does not know what it means. The girl moves on, asking, "What do you think 'FrFr' means?" The mother hilariously replies, "For real, for real?" and then adorably realizes that that is what I meant. The daughter states how she was done with the list of words and the video cuts. We then see the mother asking the girl if nobody used the word "lit" anymore.
She mentions how she would occasionally use it. The mother asks her, "How about like, 'You rock?'" The daughter is visibly embarrassed and hilariously asks her mother to stop, ending the video. People who watched the video found it quite hilarious and shared their thoughts in the comments section. @myyoung4ever said, "Our generation our here creating new languages." @k4sp3r.005 said, "I don't even know what half of these were."
