You can’t argue with democracy: Burden won last Sunday’s lexical face-off with a cumbersome 76% of votes to pocket’s 12%, meaning it’s the former that’s officially added to the dictionary today. What lessons can we take from this? Well, you apparently prefer vicious humour over vulgar, cruelty to crassness, and swearing definitely isn’t the way to go. How highbrow... I’m impressed!
There’s no pleasing 5% of people, who didn’t care for either of the suggested definitions. Meanwhile, another 5% put down their box-cutters long enough to point out that they were too busy cutting themselves to care. Now that’s dedication. Keep up the good work, self-harmers... Someone’s just bound to notice you soon! Thanks to everyone who voted. Regular dictionary service resumes tomorrow.
