An intentionally vague Facebook status update, that prompts friends to ask what's going on, or is possibly a cry for help.
Mary is: "wondering if it is all worth it"
Mark is: "thinking that was a bad idea"

"Have you talked to Mark? He's vaguebooking again. I wonder if he's back with Mary..."

Tammy is: "in line at the grocery store"

And as a side note, Linguistic Ju-Jitsu is not just common street slang. It's not hip-talk or coolspeech, although hip-talk and coolspeech are themselves examples of Linguistic Ju-Jitsu. Linguistic Ju-Jitsu is wordsmashing and semantic copulation. It's the combining of words to make betterwords. It's an attempt to straighten out the English language's inexplicable desire to confuse people by having the same word mean seven different things.
Just wanted to clear that up.
