Teen adds new words to vocabulary

An Upper West Side teen has continued to expand his already rich vocabulary during his first semester of high school. Ethan Tarpley, a freshman at LREI High School, now peppers most sentences with colorful new words and phrases, many of them starting with the letter F.

"He's an exceptionally bright young man who never stops learning," said his parents. "We couldn't be prouder."

When reached for comment, Ethan said, "I don't know what the f- you're talking about."
