Thanks To The Oxford English Dictionary Word-Of-The-Year, There Is No Way You Will Ever Escape Selfies Again
Word of the year time, you guys! WORD OF THE YEAR TIME. Yes, it is the most blessed day of Nerd Year when the Oxford English Dictionary picks the hottest greatest latest neologism to be their word of the year, and this year it is “selfie” because of course it is. Also, too, because everyone – EVERYONE – takes selfies.
First, there are the three people that likely make up 70% of all the world’s selfie traffic.
There are the oh-so-ill-advised selfies:
The “fadings stars” selfies.
Finally, there are the selfies from people that you didn’t really expect selfies from so they’re actually kind of awesome.
Look on your works, America, and rejoice or weep, or both.
