Kek - what is this? Explanations of slang
Internet slang is expanding every year, andhis dictionary already contains millions of very different words, the origin of which is lost in time. One such frequently used word is "cake". What it is?
We will begin with the most simple explanation of what it means"cake". Strangely enough, the given word exists and in the usual language which in any way does not refer to the Internet. In scientific terms, this is a residue that remains after a chemical reaction. For example, if you evaporate seawater, salt forms on the bottom. This will be a cake. But the broad inhabitant of the term is unlikely to meet in everyday life, and there are other meanings of the word "cake". What can it be yet?
If you suddenly encounter the word "cake", it can mean one of three options.
The first is an emotion. Perhaps you've heard of "lol," meaning loud laughter? So, "cake" is a malicious laugh. It is used when you have to laugh at someone. A sort of mockery of a man who did something wrong.
The second use of "cake" isdesignation of a person. Actually, it is treated the same way as in the first case, with the exception that it means a person, and not just a sound in a void. According to many of the Internet community, this designation is absolutely wrong, because the word was originally used as an emotional expression.
And the last meaning of the word "cake". What it is? This is the well-known Shrek from the cartoon. Although in this context a specific word is used extremely rarely.
And now let's figure out where the word "cake" came from. What is it originally?
There are two versions of the appearance of this strange word "cake". Both of them, strangely enough, refer to computer games, and released by the same company. In this case - Blizzard.
- In the strategy "StarCraft" sound "kekeke" depicted the evil laughter of beings.
- The next version is a bit more complicated. Anyone who played World of Warcraft knows that there are two warring parties, and most importantly that they can not communicate with each other. All written turns for the opponent in abracadabra. So, if you write the word lol, then for the enemy it was transformed into a "cake". Hence the use of non-traditional spelling.
- However, there is always a separate opinion. Some argue that the word "cake" has appeared thanks to multiple Internet memes with Shrek, and designate it and nothing more. And everything else - fiction uneducated.
Which of the variants of the origin of this word is truthful - it is not known. All this has long been covered with dust. The main thing - remember that if you just said "cake", then, most likely, maliciously laughed.
