'Adorkable' To Be Added To New Worst Dictionary

June 20, 2014


Marketing descriptions of Zooey Deschanel will finally be linguistically accurate thanks to terrible lexicon Collins English Dictionary. Following a Twitter contest--the benchmark for vocabulary validity if there ever was one--the dictionary recently decided that New Girl tagline "adorkable" should officially be part of the English language. The manufactured word will now be listed ahead of "adorable" as also an actual word defined as "socially inept or unfashionable in a charming or endearing way." The etymology will apparently be credited to Fox executive vice president of marketing and communications, Shannon Ryan, who's also reportedly responsible for similarly manufacturing the portmanteau "celebutante." Is it too early to crown her the new Shakespeare?
