A (Monday) Reason to Laugh



Once upon a Monday, while attempting to understand (or much better known as googling) cultural relevantism, I stumbled into this blog with the exact same term. Thanks Google for the obviousness of it all.

There's a post titled "teaching old words new tricks" where he highlighted The Washington Post's published list of winning alternate meanings for various words AND new words with new meanings. I almost choked on teh tarik ok? Now, stop eating/drinking and start reading:
