‘F-bomb,’ ‘sexting,’ ‘man cave’ added to Merriam-Webster dictionary
"We saw another huge spike after Dick Cheney dropped an F-bomb in the Senate in 2004," Kory Stamper, an associate editor for Merriam-Webster, told The Associated Press. "It's a word that is very visually evocative. It's not just the F-word. It's F-bomb. You know that it's going to cause a lot of consternation and possible damage."
"Brain cramp," "bucket list," "energy drink," "life coach" and "aha moment" are also among the additions to the 114-year-old dictionary.

Merriam Webster is turning into Urbandictionary.com.

It's very comforting to see that a proper dictionary is keeping at bay language better suited to texters, people that have probably never written an Essay, and those that think the entire world was invented within the last few years despite the fact that the common language (English and it's derivatives) are hundreds of years old.


Oh wait a minute.

Perhaps I could counter my post by dropping a (INSERT-SOME-RELEVANT CULTURAL-EVENT-OR-PHRASE-HERE) bomb and make a great point with it.

Wow...I thought a man cave was a gay bar, or a reference to a part of a mans anatomy. I'm so glad they're putting it in the dictionary.

Sheesh...that would have been embarrassing.

Who the F uses a dictionary anymore. Unless you are playing some trivia game. No . You just Google it with your Galaxy S3.Try the urban dictionary :

Shatner texting :

When someone sends several 1-3 word texts to complete a sentence, thought, phrase, or anything that would take a normal person one text to send. This behavior can cause the reciever of Shatner texts to have their phones freeze because of the abundance or texts coming at once. It can also cause aggravation and annoyance because the reciever cannot read the first text because the rest of the texts are strolling in. Not to be confused with spamming. Named after William Shatner's speech patterns.
