Oxford Dictionaries have declared ‘fucknugget’ as its 2016 international word of the year, reflecting what it called a year of “unbelievable levels of fucknuggetry”.
The word is described as an adjective relating to people unable to comprehend even the most basic of obvious consequences, despite regular warnings being explained very slowly to them, or written in large letters, in crayon.
“Fucknugget is, unfortunately, becoming the defining word of our time, and 2016 will forever be remembered as the year of the fucknugget.” said Adam Wale, of Oxford Dictionaries.
“It most adequately defines 52% of the British voting public as well as tens of millions of Americans who are all easily led by obvious lies.”
The word was chosen from a list relating to the events of the year, none of which reflected well on humanity. “It could have been ‘cockwomble’, ‘moron’, or ‘ohmyfuckinggodwhatthefuckiswrongwithyoupeople’, but ‘fucknugget’ had a ring of simplicity to it. Much like the people it describes.”
2015 saw the word of the year being selected as the “face with tears of joy emoji”. Current feedback suggests that the emoji is still crying, but no longer with joy.
