Twerking and Selfie

Was anyone else as confused and baffled as me when they heard the news that "twerking" and "selfie" have been added to the dictionary?

Catch up on the article here. 

I resorted to Wikipedia to find out the meaning of twerking - 

Twerking is a type of dancing in which the dancer, usually a woman, shakes her hips in an up-and-down bouncing motion, causing the dancer's buttocks to shake, "wobble" and "bounce".  According to Oxford Dictionaries, to twerk is "to dance to popular music in a sexually provocativemanner involving thrusting hip movements and a low squatting stance"

I mean REALLY !

Personally, I think "totes amaze-balls" should be an actual phrase in the actual dictionary. 

Maybe I ought to write my own dictionary. Now there's a thought... Charlotte has her own dictionary of words/meanings - couldn't even begin to share some of those with you but they are fun..!
