A few important bits of news from this week that concern the word “dude.”
One: Deadspin keeps breaking the scandalous, lascivious sports stories that no one wants to touch. Or, in the case of Tuesday’s piece about the resignation of the University of Toledo’s head running coach, the Toledo Blade was going to touch it, but the “New York-based kids” beat them to the punch. Without nerding out on journalism, Deadspin’s piece highlighted, more than anything else, that a man close to 50 can most definitely overuse the words “fuck” and “dude” to the point where either loses its appeal to be said. Oh, and it also did a great job at highlighting sexual abuse in a prominent college athletic program. But that “dude” usage was egregious. Never forget.
Two: Asher Roth and Curren$y released a track today called “Dude” in honor of Ash Wednesday (get it?). It’s produced by Blended Babies and so chill. Dude. Just listen.
Bonus: Jeff Spicoli GIF just because.
