Annie: "I'm going to be late for the party."

Me: "Sho 'nuff."

Annie: "Sho 'nuff? What does that mean?"

Me: "Literally, it means 'Sure enough.' It's old-school ghetto slang used to agree with something.

Annie: "Well I like what we say nowadays."

Me: "And what's that?"

Annie: "We say, 'Tru-dat.' Literally, it means 'True that."

Me: "Well at least 'Sho 'nuff' comes from two words properly put together."

Annie: "Tru-dat!"

Me: "Sho 'nuff!"
