>From The Australian:

 They're rude, crude and kids


STRANGELY, June Factor has not  heard of Care Factor – an abbreviation of
Care Factor Equals Zero and kidspeak for indifference.

 But the author of Kidspeak, a new dictionary charting Australian children's
language, has heard of bogans, piffing yonnies (throwing  stones), Kiss
Chasey, homies, penis butter, Babe-raham Lincoln, a fair suck of the Siberian
sandshoe and taking a chill pill.

 She knows there are 99 synonyms for cool and that an axe-mark is regrettably
not only an indentation in wood. . . .,4057,1416374%255E421,00.html
