Like wow!

Poor Canada:

It's the new, like, grammar — like it or not.

Canadian teens are sprinkling their speech with the word "like" at a soaring rate, new research shows — with some 16-year-olds using it even more often than the word "and."

More than 20 years after the first Valley Girl, (popularized in a 1982 Frank Zappa song) swapped "like" for "said" — I'm like, `Gag me with a spoon' and she's like, `Oh my God!' — the four-letter word has worked its way into teen lingo at unprecedented speed.

I was like on this like so many like years ago. Really, I like was!
