Isn't it?

So the subject of this post is somewhat outside my range of knowledge in a few ways, but I've appreciated this enough to think it's worth posting. Anyone familiar with modern British adolescent slang or with language attitudes concerning them ought to find this rather entertaining. It's a series of skits placing the modern jargon in the mouths of WWII era RAF pilots. Of course, a lot of the humor comes from a "kids these days" chicken little attitude toward language change, but the contrast is so striking that you should be able to chuckle no matter what your personal or professional attitude towards such attitudes is.
