I'm not comfortable with the slang word, Lil' used in place of the word, little (or big 'ol in place of "big old" or simply "big"). In fact, the whole idea of anyone purposefully using these terms scares me. It even becomes worse when these words are combined with other slang phrases like gangsta (e.g. Lil' Gangsta in the world of hip-hop) Surprisingly, you rarely see this term used in conjunction with prescription medications, (e.g. Lil' Lipitor, Big 'Ol Zoloft, etc.).
