Seems about (alt-)right.

Fairly representative of the whole year, I think.


Every goddam dictionary has its own word of the year. It was cute when there was only one, but now it seems like there’s ten or more. I say we should put them in a backpack and make them fight!






Wow. This is the world we live in. Even the Oxford Dictionary feels it necessary to dis Trump.
