For those who don’t know, the English language is ridiculous—especially American English. I know, I know, many of you Brits have been saying this for years, but really it’s the truth (not that the Brits don’t have some very odd vernacular and pronunciations, themselves). What ends up happening with modern American English is that enough people butcher a word for long enough time and the folks at Webster finally say Ah, the hell with it and add it in as a word. “Alright” and “Irregardless” (slaps forehead, as it should be “all right” and “irregardless” is a double-negative) are two such words. With that in mind, I have a proposal, nay a plea, for all English speakers to aid my quest to see to the inclusion of the following new words:

  • FabviousObviously fabulous
  • Oblivivious – Oblivious to what’s so damn obvious
  • Dumbassedness –( Self explanatory)
  • Rantastic – A great rant
  • Hose-beast – Has a variety of applications, as in That lady who cut me off while on her cell phone was a hose-beast, or That dude who took up the last TWO parking spots because he doesn’t know how to park is a psycho hose-beast.
  • Psych – I know it’s a word from the 80s, but I just want to bring it back, dammit…PSYCH!
  • Skittlefarts – Um, like ‘shucks,’ or possibly could be used to describe a man or woman who actually farts skittles.
  • Hippolicious—as delicious as a hippo.
