CAP> "Wirespeak" - using phrases, concepts and words that would never,
CAP> in any normal circumstance, be used in regular, everday
CAP> conversation or discussion. Can be encountered most often (and
CAP> most regularly) in the pages of UK magazine The Wire.

Actually, where I come from people use phrases like that in normal,
everyday conversation every day, normally. Most of those people went
to college, admittedly.
