“Bromance” is now a word
Sports Illustrated used to run a column called “This Week’s Sign That The Apocalypse Is Upon Us.” Not sure if they still do—haven’t read SI since I was munching down corndogs and drinking Keystone Light on a La-Z-Boy in college. But with a tip of the backwards baseball cap to that heralded column, please welcome one of the newest official words in the English lexicon: “bromance.” Defined as “a close nonsexual friendship between men,” bromance was one of more than 100 terms added today to the Merriam-Webster Collegiate Dictionary.
As for “bromance,” if you’re with a buddy who you love but totally don’t wanna get it on with, I think this induction calls for a fist bump. Why? Because “fist bump” also made the Merriam-Webster cut. So did “tweet.” Speaking of which, thanks to @ProducerMatthew for tweeting us this news.
