Oxford Dictionary Adds ‘Side Boob,’ ‘Hot Mess,’ And ‘Throw Shade’
We really don’t know how to feel about this.
Time.com reports that Oxford Dictionary, the one place writers and protectors of the English language can take refuge from all the grammatically incorrect terroists of the world, has added more words to their online database including “side boob,” “hot mess” and “throw shade.”
Now, before folks deem this the beginning of the end of days, please note Oxford Dictionary isn’t Oxford English Dictionary. Oxford Dictionary collects modern uses of words, while OED requires words to have more history.
So for those who don’t know, model and John Legend’s main squeeze Chrissy Teigen (pictured above) is showing off her “side boob” To “throw shade” is to speak disrespectfully about someone and “hot mess” is someone who looks disheveled or unkempt.
But something tells me, you don’t need Oxford to define those for you.
