Definite Article Problems

This macro was created after a schoolteacher within our small social group informed us that the new saying among the hip fifth-grade set is “the bomb,” meaning good. A majority of us agreed that during our childhoods, good was simply designated as “bomb.” Following this conversation, every other sentence suddenly contained an additional “the” just before the last word, making our conversations that much the cooler. We are “down” with the grammatical stylings of our nation’s hep the youth.
