Bruh, this snackable article is more bantz than a new cat cafe or even a much-talked about Grexit. Okay, we can’t keep talking like this because it hurts. However, today more than a thousand new words were added to the Oxford Dictionary, pissing off language boffins everywhere. Language is constantly changing, but this development is a fatberg like no other. NBD.
