words!

I love the dictionary. In fact, I used to pick it up for fun. The nerd inside of me loves to excite the portion of her brain dedicated toward vocabulary skill. It’s up there with sex. When I see the word of the day pop up on my google homepage I know the day will turn out okay. But I digress... What is important here are the latest words which have added to the dictionary. There are nearly 100 new words! Things like “google,” “drama queen,” “mouse potato,” “soul patch,” “unibrow,” and so on.
Merriam-Webster has some examples here. And, what is fun is On Deadline asking “mouse potatoes” what words they would add. Click here to read the stupidity, the humour, and the genius, and of course add something clever.

my personal choise of words to add is "gunt", It's when the stomach and the ummm... part below the stomach become hard to distinguish due to weight. I suppose "gock" would be the alternate term.

Jiggaboo? I can only assume that you live near a portal to the 1930's.

Everyone always complains about how there's not a word that signifies a young cat, but no one ever does anything about it. Being the pragmatist that I am, I offer up the following suggestion: kitten

You know what else we need? A word for the time right after you have anal sex for the first time...you know...when you have to go to the hospital and miss two weeks of third grade. Can we get one for that?

Can Junk Lump be added? I mean it is a perfectly good description of the lump in a guys pants. It came to me during the World Cup.
