Welcome to Friday y'all!
Love it when you find new fun things online. I was looking for the spelling of the world surly. Don't ask. Anyway, I found on theMerriam-Webster website a list of new slang. I think this is user submitted slang but it's still kind of funny. Here's a a a brief list of some of the most recent submissions.

Mr. T already coined Jibber Jabber.
Gotye decided to remix all the people who decided to remake his song "Somebody that I used to Know". The song is called "Somebodies" which I think is a pretty clever title. See itbelow.
Friday Toy Memory-This isn't a toy this week. It's a TV Show. What the heck were they "enjoying" when they came up with the concept. I guess we can just chalk it up to the 70's...after all it was also the era of Snufalupagus so there you go. Here's the Wikipedia page about the show with every tidbit of info you ever wanted to know. Here's the show's theme song.
