Discussion[edit]

If this is our only article on Valley speak, it needs to have some mention of vocal raising or whatever that is called. I thought we had another article on this but can't seem to find one. Rmhermen 19:09 9 Jun 2003 (UTC)

Two points. First off, the comparison to the Sloane Rangers - if we're going to compare the "valley girl" stereotype to a British stereotype, wouldn't "Essex Girl" be more appropriate? Only the southern part of the San Fernando Valley is upscale (the northern part is as poverty stricken as almost anywhere in Los Angeles). Secondly, Moon Zappa's inflections were inspired by Laraine Newman on Saturday Night Live, not mentioned in the article.

Brian O' Driscoll - D4? I think not.[edit]

Brian O' Driscoll is far too sexy to be a D4, just google him. -Hsgbswgong
