Words With Friends Just Got Real--Scrabble Added 3000 Words

Literally 8 of my 8 hours of work is spent dabbling in Words With Friends. I'm not playing the entire time..just dabbling. Peeking at it every half hour or so, constructing my next move, and leading the league in "Sorry, that is not an acceptable word"s. Just a drastic part of my day. And personally, I'm not exactly sure how I feel about these new words.

I'll highlight two of these new words. 1) "Thang"--blatant ebonics. I'm not even mad, but I'm just calling a spade a spade. I only see that word in relation to something sassy or something barbecue--both exclusively black thing. 2) "Grrl"--not a vowel present. A glaring sign of where our society is heading. A place where sounds and not words reign supreme.

I'm not trying to see 12 year olds dominating the scene with triple word score "LMFAO"s and "ZZXJV"s out here.
