I'm Talkin' HUGE

You know how there are some words that seem real but aren't, and some words that seem fake but are authentic? I discovered today that one of my favorite "fake" words is in the damn dictionary.


Part of Speech: adj
Definition: simply huge; extremely large
Etymology: 1948-53; giant + enormous
Usage: ginormously, adv

ginormous didn't make the cut in the third addition of the american heritage dictionary. time to re-up and go buy myself a dictionary where i can find words such as blog, hoody, soul-patch, and supersize. we've come a long way my friends, a long way!
