What slang is popular these days?
I sometimes feel really difficult to understand what people say on Instagram and YouTube, so if you name some slangs for me that would be very helpful:)

Zoe I'm glad you are brushing your teeth. I also encourage everyone to do the same. Let me introduce yeet and bruh, very common expressions on the internet these days. Urban Dictionary is also a good resource for modern slang.

Yeet - To discard an item at a high velocity
As an exclamation it can be used to express excitement, usually happily but also nervously.
It can also be used as an exclamation of victory.
Or as a battle cry or focus-shout while throwing or hitting something
As a noun, 'a yeet' is the action of yeeting. Yeet can also be a feeling or emotion, usually like an adrenaline rush. 

Alex finishes his soda and proceeds to yeet his empty can into a trash bin

Alex (while throwing the can): “YEET!”


Bruh - The best answer to literally anything

Joe: my mom died yesterday
John: bruuhh

Joe: Yo my mom just won million dollars
John: bRuHhh

Joe: my mom made dinner for us 
John: bruh
##bruh
