Homer Simpson phrase in dictionary
OXFORD, England (AP) – Homer Simpson with an English accent? Don’t laugh – the beer-guzzling cartoon dad has hit the literary big-time. His favorite phrase has made it into the erudite Oxford English Dictionary. The OED’s online edition defines Homer’s trademark “doh!,” usually accompanied by a Simpsonesque slap to the forehead, as “expressing frustration at the realization that things have turned out badly or not as planned or that one has just said or done something foolish. Also implying that another person has said or done something foolish.” It’s one of 1,250 new or revised entries published Thursday on the OED Web site. They’ll all be added to the next edition of the print dictionary, but its publication is years away.
Nice to see that the word that is used by so many is now legit 🙂
