I was recently shocked by a student of mine who described something as “fantabulous.” I had heard the word (maybe even used it myself), but I would have never used slang in a paper I turned in to one of my professors. I do not consider slang to be proper English and therefore not a real word. So I decided to look it up and see if it was in the dictionary. It was in online dictionaries, and of course, it was listed in UrbanDictionary.com.
According to UrbanDicitonary.com:
Are you tired of your old gay quotes?
Doesn't fantastic just feel like it used to?
Is fabulous already soooo used?
Then Fantabulous is for you!
Now with 50% more gay!
I hope you have a fantabulous day today. I only have one more half-day of school (the students were gone on Friday), now it is just getting everything ready for summer and tying up loose ends. Who knew teachers did so much after school was out?
