07:41 pm - my hope for the future
It is my fond wish that I live long enough to see the day where a phrase like "fo shizzle" is viewed as quaint and hopelessly obsolete an anachronism as "odds bodkins" or "so's your old man."

What a beautiful world this will be
What a glorious time to be free

Nah, see, that's "dated" or, yeah, "obsolete," but it's not the sort of cutely old-fashioned thing old men say, or that you giggle about in books from decades ago.

I think the word you're looking for in that case is "embarrassing."

Me, I'm disturbed thinking of what sort of "classic literature" the schoolchildren of the future are subjected to. Please let it not be Michael Crichton.

What does it mean when the phrase "so's your old man" is directly linked in my brain to The Music Man?

Where's that from? I've heard Bill Cosby say it.

I'm pretty sure that the whole nizzle/shizzle/dizzle thing is something Snoop Dogg made up to see if gullible white people would believe that black people really talked that way, and it just got way out of hand.

Actually, the "izzle" thing has its roots in actual street slang, immortalized in Frankie Smith's 1980 smash hit Double Dutch Bus ("Dizzouble Dizzutch! Dizzouble Dizzutch!") Perhaps Snoop was bringin back a bit of his childhood when he started to izzle everything.

Slightly amusing courtroom news story on that here.

To save you the trouble of clicking the link, the funny bit is where the judge says “this led to the faintly surreal experience of three gentlemen in horsehair wigs examining the meaning of such phrases as 'fo shizzle my nizzle' and 'mish mish man'.”
