16 New Words That Should Be In Your Vocabulary

It's happening, and it's happening fast. What's happening? Words. Words are happening. But not just any kinds of words. Made up words. Words so made up that they perfectly describe the odd situations we find ourselves in due to technology, social circumstances, and our increasing inability to communicate without mediation. Yep, these words are happening, then they're going viral, and before you know it they're in the dictionary. Ahhh progress is a great thing isn't it? 

But! It's important to be aware of these words and definitions so that, when they crop up, you're not all out of the loop and grandpa-lookin.' Besides a lot of them are quite clever, pretty funny, and I guarantee you'll have at least a few "that's so true!" moments.
