Hey you mouse potato – you wanna supersize that !?!?!?

Mouse PotatoMerriam-Webster has updated its 2006 Collegiate Dictionary, and added approximately 100 new words. In the technology category, mouse potato is a newcomer, and the definition is exactly what you would expect. Like its cousin the couch potato who spends too much time in front of the TV, such is the case with the mouse potato and computer. And as scary as it is, supersize now joins the ranks of “official” words in the pop culture category. Hmmm…our society needs work…

Check out the sampling of some of the new words added.
