    Not really, they're just taking advantage of all the brainless morons who go pointlessly ga ga for anything Harry Potter like the good little mindless consumers they were brainwashed to be. Thats an easy target in my books.

    Wow, as if putting it in the dictionary wasn't pathetic enough, it was announced on CBBC's newsround, firmly cementing the fact that its a children's word, used by impressionable little brats.

    Good going OED, "English language be damned, people are using a nonsense word, OMG we must put it in the dictionary less we appear out of touch!!!!!!!!11111111". Oed has really gone to shit these days, next they'll be putting in words like "lol" and "rofl".

    Thats an interesting point 98. They might just do that for the common ones because they are so pervasive in our culture. Although problems arise since they're not really words.


    I'd like to die with the songs I love stuck in my head. I hope to make the most of these hollow bones we become.
    I raise a toast to the the souls that sang all along. I've been gathering friends to just to make some sounds,
    before the ship goes down, I've been making amends by making the rounds before the whole world ends

    At least "hobbit" had a decent definition, even if it's veracity is being debated. Just imagine how many of this stupid words may have entries in dictionaries in the future, for example:

    dattebayo v. informal request for one's statement to be believed: I am having that report done by tomorrow, dattebayo.

    They've even discovered an actual species of hobbit; that, at least, should make it a legitimate word even if it was originally created for a piece of (inspiring, amazing, wonderfully ingenious) fiction.

    I know people who use lol and rofl in everyday verbal conversation.

    ...Incidentally, I'm in the middle of re-reading the Harry Potter series.

    Really? Up until know I had always read them as: l-o-l, or r-o-f-l. XD

    That's a funny thing to know.
