There are words in the english language which have been completely and totally kerfuffled (yes, kerfuffled IS a word and you are welcome to use it as you would like... you're welcome). As if our spelling and grammar weren't bad enough! We now have words that have so many meanings I simply can not keep track and assume (at great risk of being wrong) which meaning an individual may be referring to in any given conversation.
One such word I have been obsessing over is wip. Perhaps it is due to my love of House of Cards and rap music; none the less, this word seems to be permeating pop culture at the present moment.
WIP- a work in progress
WIP- a political candidate
WIP- Web Important Person (bet cha didn't know that one)
WIP- a hot or sexy car
Now, that is just W-I-P... when you add an 'H' into the mix you get even more options:
WHIP- a form of drugs
WHIP- What white people ask to have removed from their nonfat lattes
WHIP- a tool for abusing "controlling" animals
WHIP- a white creamy substance spread on sandwiches
WHIP- a dominatrix tool of the trade
WHIP-ALL OF THE THINGS THAT A WIP IS.
So how am I supposed to know, when driving down the 101, what Jay is talking about in his fresh lyrical flow!?
"My whip so cold"
"Got two bricks, new cars, new whips"
"I push Miracle Whips"
I mean... you see the problem don't you? Then again, if I am being honest, I kind of love it...
