Oxford adds “OMG”, “LOL” and more new words to dictionary, all hope in humanity officially lost

On the plus side… no, wait, there isn’t any.  “Muffin top” also made it in, in case you weren’t yet rushing to OD on some Draino.  From the Associated Press:

Not all the new abbreviations originated online. One new entry is wag, for “wives and girlfriends.” First used in 2002 to describe the female partners of the England soccer team, it is now used to denote the glamorous and extravagant female partners of male celebrities.

“By our standards WAG is a real rocket of a word,” Diamond said. “To go from being coined in 2002 to being included in 2011 is quite unusual.”

Oh man!  Look out for those crazy words!
