** This is the case for most of the Vegas tribes. Apart from the [[Creator/TheRatPack Chairmen]], it also has [[TheMafia The Omertas]], the White Glove Society (upper class posh lingo), and an entire group of {{Elvis Impersonator}}s, the Kings. The latter go the whole nine yards, with their hair styles and outfits based on Elvis' costumes and Elvis speak (though it's only spoken by the King and Pacer, since they're the only surviving members that got to hear the Elvis voice recordings before they broke).

Added DiffLines:

* In ''Literature/MrMercedes'', otherwise well-spoken Jerome (who's in his late teens and black) affects an Ebonics-speaking persona named "Tyrone". This intensely irritates most people around him. He seems to have grown out of it by the next book in the Bill Hodges trilogy, ''Literature/FindersKeepers'', which takes place a few years later.

* On the episode of ''WesternAnimation/{{Recess}}'' where TJ's use of the word "whomps" (which the adults believe to be some newfangled obscenity rather than an UnusualEuphemism) eventually lands him in ''court''. Miss Grotke brings in her old professor Dr. Reginald "Dice" Weathersby, Ph.D., "Slangologist", an expert on American slang, to defend him. This person talks exclusively in what is apparently supposed to be roughly '60s-'70s slang, which confuses everyone in the room and greatly offends [[MoralGuardians Mr. White]], the prosecutor. Needless to say doesn't help TJ's case at all.

* Parodied on ''Series/GarthMarenghisDarkplace'' with Thornton Reed, who certainly talks the part, but is played by a nasally voiced Englishman with [[BadBadActing terrible acting skills]].

* Jughead from ''Franchise/ArchieComics'' doesn't normally talk like this however in one episode of the 40s radio show he starts talking heavily in contemporary slang because he thinks girls like it. Archie thinks his jive talk is absurd and tries it on Bety to prove it but she likes it. Archie continues to overuse slang and his mother starts to think he's sick.



* ''West Side Story'' specifically avoided using actual street slang to dodge this trope; by the time the play was through production and actually performed, it would have been hopelessly out of date.

* ''MyDadTheRockStar'': Quincy, BlackBestFriend of the male lead is a subversion since he tries to use street slang and appear hip hop but comes off as a clear poser. To further the subversion, his family is latter shown to be a straight-laced, white collar family.

* Anytime Creator/JackChick tries to relate to a black audience, it turns out like this. It's like the man learned all he knows about black people from watching GoodTimes.
