Muffin Top Makes It Into 'Oxford English Dictionary'
RENEE MONTAGNE, host:
Good morning. I'm Renee Montagne.
Muffin top, LOL and OMG joined the lexicon years ago. Now they've made it into the Oxford English Dictionary. The self-proclaimed last word on words offers this one definition of muffin top: a protuberance of flesh above the waistband of a tight pair of trousers. LOL for laugh out loud. OMG for oh my god. The heart symbol became the first of its kind to make the book.
I heart MORNING EDITION.
