I study linguistics and I couldn’t NOT chime in. Y’all is CHIEFLY Southern American English, not exclusively. A lot of people online have no idea what they’re talking about when they talk about linguistics. “Y’all” is heard in African American English in the US regardless of whether or not the speaker is southern. You do not have to be born and raised in the south to use it naturally.
That being said, AAVE is not an online term or even a new term, it’s just one in a long line of *academic* terms, Ebonics being one that is controversial and that’s why it’s fallen out of use in academic circles. There are enough accepted acronyms to make your head spin, honestly.
AAVE is not slang. I’m not going to write out a whole essay explaining what slang is and why AAVE is not slang, but I (and most other nerds) don’t expect people to know (or care) because I realize I only know it through decades of being a language and linguistics nerd. My guess is people are probably using it online because it’s only 4 characters and it has that air of academia people like to have on Twitter whether or not they actually have a clue what they’re talking about.
I watched a Polish YouTube video explaining the origins of the toy. Apparently the song was known from a meme where it was playing over a picture of a cow, which is why it showed up on the toy with other songs popular from memes. The cactus is still available for sale on a Polish Amazon equivalent.
I don’t know why that you singing in polish about cocaine was so funny to me. But imagine somewhere in Russia there’s a toy cat singing Wet Ass pussy. Lol
Sorry I meant cactus.
