| Filed under: Wacky, Tacky & TrueEducationalGIFs

We guess this is cool?

Although we're not sure our high school English teachers would appreciate it!

Oxford Dictionaries Online is trying to possibly increase its younger audience with a few slang words added to their database, and they do NOT seem like Oxford Dictionary material!

However, it's a new world these days, so maybe this is exactly Oxford Dictionary material!

The online database just added one thousand new words including a bunch of updated slang speak.

And some of the words they've collected are kind of hilarious!

It's important to note that these words aren't actually going into the dictionary books but rather just the online database.

Still, it's not the same Oxford name, so it's basically the same thing, ha!

A couple of our favorite new additions are: Duck Face, Canadian Tuxedo, and Man Crush.

And that's just the tip of the slang iceberg!!!

Check out an expanded list of some of the best words and their definitions down (below) !!!

    I'm currently playing Scrabble on my phone and I'm a traditionalist. Some of these words are ancient but the newer references are just sad. IMHO. ;-)

    It is overrated IMO. I once had an English teacher in college who downgraded me 2 grades from an A to a C because the word I used in my title I used was not in the Oxford, even though I brought the library book in to prove it was a legit word.
