37 Things People Started Saying As ‘Bits’ But Quickly Became Their Real Lingo

Have you ever heard the phrase “fake it ’till you make it?” It basically means that if you want your life to be a certain way or to be a certain kind of person, you should pretend until it becomes real. Theoretically, if we do something over and over it becomes our reality, even if it doesn’t start as true. It’s kind of an inspirational idea actually. Reality is ours to mold to our liking!

This is like that, but terrible.

Twitter user @THerwees asked people what they started saying as “a bit” and then adopted as a normal part of their everyday language.

If you’re unfamiliar with the concept of a bit, it basically means a joke. A word you started using ironically, repeating a common phrase from someone you were imitating or making fun of, or doing a character. It was all a joke until it wasn’t.

It turns out a lot of people have fallen into this trap. You might think you’re mocking someone else, but then, one day, you’ve altered your reality. Now you’re the joke. Read below for the classic bit-traps and be careful out there, homies.
