All You Neckbeard Language Snobs Can STFU Because ‘YOLO’ Is In the Dictionary Now

By 08.15.14


If you can’t beat ’em, join ’em. Today language snobs of the world who hate on a younger generation’s lexicon are all ¯_(ツ)_/¯ and SMH now that YOLO is officially being recognized by the Oxford English dictionary, along with “SMH,” “cray”, “neckbeard,” “binge-watch,” “hate-watch,” “side-boob,” “adorbs,” “listicle,” “mansplain,” “hot mess,” and “acquihire.” The Washington Post notes that it was a runner up in 2012, but ultimately lost out to “GIF.”

Let me mansplain something to you: As a writer for the cray-ist blog geared towards hip, cool millennial Bros, these are words I use every day. STFU if you hate it, neckbeards. Our side-boob, listicle, and binge-watch game is second to none on the Internet.

Thanks, Drake.

Suck it, language snobs.
