Awesomesauce news, 1,000 new words have been added to the Oxford Dictionary, which means wine o'clock is officially a thing, oh and so is a brain fart...

What a time to be alive! Instead of feeling resentful a person can now be butthurt, and there's a word to describe being all moody because you haven't had lunch yet - hangry. Even better, Wine O'Clock is simply defined as 'an appropriate time of day for starting to drink wine' so pick a time and go for it! Outside office hours, obviously.
