Uptalking: An Epidemic That Will Destroy America! Video!

By Robert Paul Reyes

 

Uptalking is a manner of speaking in which declarative sentences are uttered with a rising intonation as though they were questions.

Uptalking isn`t a new phenomenon; it`s been around since San Fernando Valley middle-class and upper-middle class girls living in the 1980`s, started speaking in this affected manner.

Until recently only foolish girls and effeminate men (not a gay slur, straight and gay men can be effeminate) employed uptalk.

But uptalking has become an epidemic, even scholarly women and macho men are talking in this annoying fashion.

My greatest nightmare is that the Zombie Apocalypse is right around the corner, and that even the undead will be uptalking.

Stop this insanity now, for God`s sake!
