McDonalds wants to change the Oxford English Dictionary


According to this article at Time, McDonalds is lobbying dictionary companies to redefine the term “McJob” because it reflects poorly on the company.

I think it is a great idea. Perhaps we can redefine other terms that reflect poorly on the US to better improve our image.

For example, we could redefine “unconstitutional” to mean something that inspires a happy warm happy feeling. That would solve a lot of problems. For example the sentence: “The White House policies toward enemy combatants is unconstitutional.” has a much more pleasant meaning, and would change the nature of the discussions happening today.

I’m sure there are other terms that would benefit from redefinition. Perhaps “sarcasm” is a good candidate.
