“Linkin Park is the shiznat”
OK, I understand that the sentence above means “Linkin Park is the SHIT”. Now I’ve been hearing this infix (cf prefix, suffix) used all the time.
A recent example is the following: There is a popular bar in my town called “The Dock”. A friend recently said that he was heading to the “Dizock” after work, of course referring to The Dock bar.
Sometimes he’ll call his friends “Dizonna”, “Bizen”, “Rizob” (Donna, Ben, Rob).
I hear this on television from time to time, too – usually on MTV or other youth-oriented fare. I see it on various message boards all over the Net (including here). It’s definitely not a local thing.
So … who or what STARTED that? How did it get in popular culture?
