10 New Words Added to Oxford Dictionary [POLL]


Call me old fashioned and out of touch – I don’t care – to me some of these word should not be considered “real” words and put in any dictionary.  

I’m not sure the frequency in which they add words to the Oxford Dictionary, I do know that these words being added are likely the result of the Kardashians or Real Housewives of Orange County.  If you’ve never watched them you are better off – believe me.  Unfortunately my wife watches those dumb shows and I sometimes catch a few minutes of them, usually resulting in me feeling dumber.

Here are 10 new words being added.

1. Side boob – This is probably the only one that doesn’t annoy me.  Probably because I like boobs…just saying.  
2. YOLO – “You only live once,”.  Are we that lazy that we can’t just say that?
3. Adorbs –  Short for adorable.  This one is probably the one I hate the most.
4. Hot mess –  A person or thing that is spectacularly unsuccessful or disordered.  I can somewhat deal with this one.  Somewhat….
5. Throw shade. To publicly criticize or express contempt for someone.  I’ve never even heard of this.  This one is STUPID!
6. Amazeballs – Very impressive, enjoyable, or attractive.  This is another I CANNOT stand hearing.  I see my ex on facebook using this stupid term.  That’s why she is an ex
7. Bro hug – A friendly embrace between two men.  ANOTHER DUMB ONE!
8. Cray – An abbreviation for “crazy.”  I usually want to punch the person that says this.  For real!
9. FML – [Eff] my life! To express dismay at a frustrating personal situation.
10. Douchebaggery – Obnoxious or contemptible behavior.  This is the only one on the list I actually like.  Only because it describes how I feel all the people who use these other terms act.
