webster makes ginormous decision

Merriam-Webster added one of my favorite words into the dictionary. Ginormous.

Some people aren't happy. Like asshat Allan Metcalf, a professor of English at MacMurray College in Jacksonville, Illinois, who says about GINORMOUS: "A new word that stands out and is ostentatious is going to sink like a lead balloon," he said. "It might enjoy a fringe existence." Geez. I'll bet he's a lot of fun at parties.

I'm stoked about Webster's wordalicious decision. It's awesome. Thanks for the tip, Bill!

I just enjoy that it's between "gin mill" and "gin rummy." I want to go and play gin rummy in a ginormous gin mill. Mmm, gin.
