This is a public service announcement.

Fascism will be Merriam Webster's word of the year, unless a bunch of us go online and search for another word. The dictionary people are basically begging us to do it.

# of lookups = how we choose our Word of the Year.

There's still time to look something else up.

Their tweet on Tuesday reads, "'Fascism' is still our #1 lookup.
# of lookups = how we choose our Word of the Year.
There's still time to look something else up."

So maybe go look some words up to help them out. Any word that isn't fascism.

There's a movement on for Flummadiddle, meaning something foolish or worthless.

Not as many as 'fascism'.

But more than that phrase from Gilmore Girls. https://t.co/3dfrQzVUGp
