"Twerk" Added To Oxford Dictionary, Miley Cyrus Couldn't Be Happier

I can see it now, the year is 2076, and rich socialite Maxwell Honeybottom the Third flips through a copy of the Oxford Dictionary, landing on "Twerk". "Ah," he'll say, "dance to popular music in a sexually provocative manner involving thrusting hip movements and a low, squatting stance. Indeed"

Can't wait for the autocorrect fuckups to ensue. To celebrate this most joyous of occasions, here's Miley Cyrus twerking all over the goddamn place.

And for you fine hermit crabs who have no idea what the fine art of twerking is, here's the New York Post's rendition of a step-by-step instruction twerk. CAUTION: Don't try this at home kids!
