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!
