Valley Boys

Oh em gee - 
How could it be?
A change in masculinity?
Like, what's the deal?
Is this for real?
Could valley speak have mass appeal?
You're joking, right?
Get out of sight!
Upspeak implies a lack of might.
As if, you know...
Like, dude, bro...
Male voices aren't all loud and low?

According to a new study, more California men
are speaking with an upward tone like I did way back when.
