Syntax City: Expanded Dictionary
POSTED BY: TheInDecider
The newest edition of the Oxford English Dictionary has been causing quite a stir amongst dictionary aficionados, who are, for the most part, stirred only by advances in alphabetization techniques. Apparently, the OED, long considered our language's standard-bearer, decided to include a host of newfangled words (though the word "newfangled" was removed). These words include "manbag" (a purse with a strap, worn by men), "semi-freddo," (a class of semi-frozen desserts) and "cattle class" (no-frills economy travel). So, we're not sure when they start working on the next edition, but we've got some words we'd like to include, race-related ones. What? Oh, we mean, presidential race-related. Whew. That was a close one.
hillary: (n) 1. Republican slang, meaning devil incarnate.
Romneylingual: (n.) condition in which the speaker is forced to use words that have unfortunate phonetic similarities interchangeably. The Distracted Globe

I do believe you've used semi-Freddo as an adjective and defined it as a noun. Perhaps modify the definition to read "in a semi-conscious mental state, as of certain late-entry candidates" or something.
Widestance is amazing. I need to start incorporating that into my vocabulary.
These are great, basically.
