Professor Pamela Munro and her UCLA students put together a “slang” dictionary every four years. They compile all the latest and greatest example of pimply hyperbole that those kooky kids of today are saying. Latest entries include the usual IM and email abbreviations, like “IDK” for “I Don’t Know.”
Also included in the dictionary is the word “Obama.” Apparently it means “cool,” as in “You so obama!” I guess grammar isn’t something that’s making the rounds in UCLA.
I can’t help but wonder what the definition of “obama” will be when the next volume comes out in four years.
