A dictionary's Twitter account just destroyed a critic online
"Merriam-Webster issued the definition of a burn on Twitter Wednesday.
The official page for the American English dictionary issued the clap back tweet after a man attempted to offer a cheeky critique to the brand.
It all started with an innocent joke sent out by the page explaining how it is alright to use the word 'mad' in place of the word 'angry'.
The tweet was accompanied by a photo of a snarling dog to illustrate its point.
That's when Gabriel Roth, a senior editor at Slate, decided to take the opportunity to engage in some good-natured ribbing with the account.
'I feel like @MerriamWebster is turning into the “chill” parent who lets your friends come over and get high,' he wrote.
'It’s great at first, it’s nice to have friends and a place to get high, but something about it starts to feel wrong,' he continued."
Roth continues with the navel gazing for a few tweets, until the dictionary decides it has had enough, and tweets back: "No one cares how you feel."
Six small words bring the house down. That is a thing of beauty, clean, clear, accurate. Boom! Does anyone have smelling salts? Roth is gonna need 'em.
Luckily Maddog's Lair has the video!
