    People Are Sharing "White People Vernacular They Should Use More," And It's Hilariously Accurate

    "News flash, buddy."

    On Friday, Twitter user @fionaapplescigarette posted examples of "white people vernacular that they should use more." They provided examples of their own including:

    1. "That's rich coming from you."


    2. "Ok, no more Mr. Nice Guy."


    3. "Let's skedaddle."


    4. "Let me be frank."


    5. "Now, listen here, pal."


    6. "Cup of joe."


    7. "You're barking up the wrong tree."


    8. "How you like them apples?"


    9. "News flash, buddy."


    This then inspired Twitter users to come through with some spot-on examples of their own. Here are just a few of the absolute best:
