'Sexting' makes the dictionary

News24 reports that 'Sexting' among new words in dictionary: Popular phrases such as " cloud computing", "bucket list" and "f-bomb" are among the new entries in the 2012 update of Merriam-Webster's Collegiate Dictionary, according to a list released by the company.

As someone who aspires to get his own words/phrases into any dictionary I'm a bit annoyed to say the least.  I can only console myself with the knowledge that this dictionary is inferior to the Oxford English Dictionary.
