Things We Saw Today: “Scooby Snack” Added to Oxford English Dictionary



Over Twitter earlier today, the Oxford English Dictionary announced that Scooby Snacks are finally where they belong: in the dictionary. The definition shows that the OED recognizes Scooby Snack as both the actual dog treats enjoyed by Scooby, and the large, multi-tiered sandwiches devoured by Scooby, Shaggy, and others under the influence of “drinking, smoking, or drug use.” (via io9)

They are preying on the desperation of TV writers looking for work, and asking way too much.” (via Deadline)
