I’m sure you’ve all seen this and LOLed about it. But this is really fun. The Washigton Post runs this contest every year for people to provide new definitions for common words. Here’s the 2017 winners, if you haven’t seen them.

Only thing I am wondering is should I give a list of words to give new meanings to or should I make it so everyone submits their own list of words with new meanings? Could do either one and and it be fun and challenging.

There is actually no such contest. These definitions go back years.
