You're not alone. Others are right behind scratching their heads and pondering why #tigerblood continues to be a trending topic on Twitter.

Fear not. We're here to help.

Someone uber-smart put together a dictionary to better explain the adonis enigma that is Charlie Sheen and his "Sheenisms." We'd like to share a few of these gems now.

You've probably heard the phrase "winning" in conjunction with "bi-winning" a lot in the past few days. Now, you might think you know the meaning of the former, but just to clarify, let's consult the dictionary:

Winning

Definition: The end goal of Charlie Sheen’s life philosophy.

Usage: “The only thing I’m addicted to right now is winning,” “Just winning every second,” “Winning, anyone?” “Duh, winning!”

Pronunciation: Quoth Sheen, “It rhymes with winning.”

Bi-winning

Definition: Winning on the ultimate level.

Usage: I’m not bi-polar, “I’m bi-winning. I win here and I win there.”

Following along? Great! Here's a few more phrases and their definitions to keep you up to speed:

Wearing a golden sombrero

Definition: Getting divorced four times in a row (kind of the opposite of a hat trick).

Usage: “I tried marriage. I'm 0 for 3 with the marriage thing. So, being a ballplayer — I believe in numbers. I'm not going 0 for 4. I'm not wearing a golden sombrero."

Tiger blood

Definition: What runs through Sheen’s veins, making him all-powerful.

Usage: “AA was written for normal people. People that don’t have tiger blood and Adonis DNA,” “[I survived drug addiction] because I'm me. I'm different. I have a different constitution, I have a different brain, I have a different heart. I got tiger blood, man.”

Sober Valley Lodge

Definition: The Beverly Hills home where Sheen claims he’s healed himself “with the power of my mind.”

Usage: “We couldn’t really call it rehab because we didn’t have a license to operate one, so it was a crisis management center that we labeled the Sober Valley Lodge. … Its primary client achieved radical success.”

The Wedge

Definition: Sheen’s nickname for himself, based on his preferred position between his two blonde 24-year-old girlfriends, a.k.a. "the goddesses."

Usage: “It’s a wedge. Boom. You form a wedge to make room for the guy carrying the ball.”

Fun, huh?

We hear the new Oxford American Dictionary is making adjustments as we speak to accommodate the changes Charlie's made to the English language.

Sarah Palin's Refudiate Named Word Of The Year!

Filed under: Sarah Palin

The New Oxford American Dictionary announced that the word "refudiate," which was made famous by Sarah Palin in July, won its 2010 Word of the Year award.

Oxford University Press stated:

“From a strictly lexical interpretation of the different contexts in which Palin has used 'refudiate,' we have concluded that neither 'refute' nor 'repudiate' seems consistently precise, and that 'refudiate' more or less stands on its own, suggesting a general sense of 'reject.'"

They got that right! The non-existent word has worked its way into our hearts.

Will U work it into your vocabulary?!
