smiley - rofl That's true, it's a new, artificial dialect.

I couldn't believe 'funzt' at first, as in 'funzt nit'.smiley - winkeye

It comes from typing so quickly. Abbreviations like gn8 are the norm. (=good night)

I've wondered what it is the abbreviation from ever since you first used it. I imagine it's from 'fun' - it's a German speciality to take English words and 'Germanise' them grammatically, and then to change their meaning. smiley - rofl.
