According to a bunch of retarded eggheads at the New Oxford American Dictionary, the word of the year is “unfriend.” Apparently finding the word of the year is some huge process where a bunch of dorks get together and go, “Hmmmmmm.”
On blogs Tuesday, debate about the decision was ongoing. Chief among the issues of dispute: whether “unfriend” or “defriend” was the proper word for weeding someone from one’s online circle.
“Frustrated that ‘unfriend’ is the word of the year. It’s definitely ‘defriend’ when referencing Facebook,” one Twitter user wrote, adding the hashtag #dictionaryfail.
Others defended the choice: ” ‘Defriend’ makes me think of ‘defoliate’ and, well, I dunno, it sounds weird,” one wrote.
Oxford spokesman Christian Purdy said researchers found that “unfriend” was more commonly used.
Why is a news organization quoting Twitter users twitting about whether or not a made up word “sounds weird”?
Oh yeah, because the end of the world is near.
Dear Al Gore,
I don’t why I’m blaming this all on you, but deep down in my heart of hearts, I think you had something to do with it. So just in case: Fuck you.
