If you want to impress someone who is droolworthy, you might want to steal some bling. But be careful or the Po-po will bust you and you’ll be chillaxing in jail. D’oh!
Sound like nonsense? Those are just some of the new words making their way into the Oxford Dictionary Online. Many of the new words hail from pop culture, although a number have already become dated. Among the new entries, according to SFGate:
Bling (n): Expensive, ostentatious clothing and jewelry. “His bling is ostentatious.”
Bromance (n): A close but non-sexual relationship between two men. “Do Matt Damon and Ben Affleck have the bro-iest bromance of all?”
Chillax (v): Calm down and relax. “Let’s go to the beach and chillax.”
D’oh (ex): Exclamation used to comment on a foolish or stupid action, especially one’s own. “D’oh! We drank all the beer and the game hasn’t even started yet.”
No word on whether the officials were clad only in their mankini’s eating Frankenfood when they made their picks.
“I figure that they’re trying to make sure these words have actually entered the lexicon, except who says any of these words with a straight face? It’s like they are birders and they’re so excited about the birds they’ve grabbed it and strangled the life out of it,” says co-host Bill Radke.
Mankini (n): A brief one-piece bathing garment for men, with a T-back. “I wanted to vomit when I saw a picture of a bunch of dudes wearing mankinis.”
Frankenfood (n): Genetically modified food. “The people at the farmer’s market wouldn’t go near Frankenfood, such as genetically modified ‘Golden Rice’ plants.”
