Here’s a quote from Overheard Everywhere that I thought you would enjoy:
As You Should Know All Too Well, Cuntrella
Teacher: Does anyone know how to spell that?
Student: Looks like it’s time to whip out the dic!
Teacher: Some words should *not* be shortened.
High School Classroom

Thanks to Alexa for blogging it earlier today!
This reminds me of a funny moment in high school. There was a girl (who was hilarious) who would say the word ridic, short for ridiculous, all the time. (This is back before it became more widespread.)
It was mostly unremarkable until she said the following to a math teacher:
“Mr. M, you’re ridic.”
Say it out loud.
To this day, it makes me smile.
