Apple updates the peach emoji so that it looks like a butt again (thank goodness), the super moon was not so super (I didn’t get to see it), there is something called Singles Day and online stores make serious cash out of it, a dad trolls his daughter’s sexy Instagram pics and has way more followers than her and Oxford has released the word of the year for 2016 and no it isn’t WTF.
Apple brings back the proper peach (bottom) emoji
A few weeks ago people noticed that with the new iOS update came no peach (aka ass) emoji. It just looked like a peach. The internet was pissed, but luckily Apple heard our cries. I am happy to announce that we know live in a world where the peach emoji looks like a butt.
Last year the word of the year was an emoji (read all about it here) and this year we have gone in a completely different direction. The 2016 word of the year is post-truth.
WTF is post-truth? ‘relating to or denoting circumstances in which objective facts are less influential in shaping public opinion than appeals to emotion and personal belief’.
In 2005 American comedian Stephen Colbert popularized an informal word relating to the same concept: truthiness, defined by Oxford Dictionaries as ‘the quality of seeming or being felt to be true, even if not necessarily true’.
In a nutshell you believe something that is not true or complete BS.
Here are the other words that made the list, proving once again that 2016 has really been a WTF year.
I usually send out a weekly mailer with a recap of blog posts but also some personal anecdotes. If you want to know about competitions or just catch up in a more personal setting then you might like to receive the mailer.
