The Internet has now become one of the main ways of communication. This, of course, is facilitated by social networks. A distinctive feature of virtual conversations is slang. Of course, special words began to be included in the everyday vocabulary of young people.
Adults already cease to understand the special talk of young guys and girls. Teenagers often began to make obscure sounds, the meaning of which is difficult to explain logically. Nevertheless, youth slang is only evolving. And so you should at least occasionally be interested in new Internet terms to be on the same wavelength with everyone.
Today we will consider the now popular word "cake". In addition to the VKontakte network, it can be found on forums and in gaming communities.
Over time, it turned out that it is impossible to give a single definition of the word "cake". What it means, not everyone will answer. Even those who use it do not always understand the meaning. In order to understand in general terms what it is, it is necessary to determine in what context it is being used.

If a person is told that he is a cake, then he has found himself in a silly or ridiculous position. In principle, this term is not offensive. He only emphasizes the funny situation in which the interlocutor appeared.
If you want to find out what the word "cake" means, you need to turn to the no less popular expression "lol". It is believed that these two terms are synonymous. As many know, "lol" (lol) in Russian translates as "laughter" (Laughing Out Loud). "Keck" also means laughter, but, unlike "lol", it is more malicious and sarcastic.
If you ask the adult what the word "cake" in youth slang means, he can only remember another definition of this word. The matter is that this term denotes sediment, or active sludge. Outwardly, it looks like feces, so many regulars of forums and social networks often compare these two words with each other. Association "cake" and "feces" for many remains quite bright. Therefore, it is likely that this is what made this word popular in the Internet environment.
In General, all the above connection with "the cake" are just a consequence of the occurrence of the term. None of was not the ancestor. It is believed that the game "StarCraft" was the ancestor of the concept of "cake". This word was used by the Asian players and fans. The equivalent in the Russian language was considered "heh." Some used the expression kekeke.
And here is Shrek?
Those who have ever tried to learn about "cake", what this term means and who uses it, met memes with Shrek. This association appeared after the game "VarKraft". Those who played, know that for each race in the chat, certain expressions are used. If you chose an orc and your opponents write lol, then for others it will be highlighted as kek. It is for this reason that the animated character became "shKEK", or simply "cake".
Another association of this term is associated with another no less popular slang word lulz, which has the Russian equivalent of "lulz". It means laughter and is synonymous with "lol". So, later became aware of the fact that if you write in English kek, but forget to change the layout, the Russian letters will get "lul". Of course, this is an absolute coincidence, which could also be the reason for introducing this term into youth slang.

In Brazil, gamers are accustomed to using the same amount of kkk as smilies. But in Indonesia, players write wkwkwkwk. The Japanese, by the way, believe that this expression is very similar to the sounds that the macaque publishes. Therefore, they often write something similar to kikikiki.
You can and the actors meet the word "cake". What does it mean, you already know. But what is interesting is that Christopher Lambert often makes a sound in his films, implying mockery, mockery, or irony.
Well, finally, very distant similarity of this term is found in the game Final Fantasy II. When a player enters the Black Mask Village, he encounters not only a sound reminder, but also a written phrase kekeke. But in the sixth part of this game you can meet just a hero named Kefka. Despite the fact that his contagious laughter is more like the sounds of ufufufu, still many believed that he was publishing something like kekeke.
