Masshole has officially been added to the Oxford English Dictionary, though it’s been in the lexicon of the Bay State’s neighbors for years.
Masshole joins hot mess, twerk, fo’shizzle, sext, stanky, twitterati, meh, and nearly 500 other words added Wednesday.
From Masshole’s now-official dictionary entry: Masshole, n. A term of contempt for: a native or inhabitant of the state of Massachusetts.
Well, it's official. Masshole has finally been recognized by the mainstream. That is fucking awesome.
I really think I'm going to friggin cry. I mean, I can't help but think back to the day when Gordon Edes of ESPN Boston refused to credit Masshole Sports as a source in one of his articles because, as he said, "my bosses would think it was in bad taste to credit someone who calls himself the 'masshole.'"
And I can't help but think of all the times those gumpy bastids on sports talk radio would talk about something I posted and not refer Masshole Sports by name because they thought massholes were some sort of bottom feeding subculture that didn't deserve the respect.
Well going forward, anyone who refuses to use Masshole in the mainstream or who considers it, "in bad taste" can screw. We're legit, bitches.
