Language is supposed to evolve

All words are made up. Language is organic.

Second brexit. I really hoped that wouldn't catch on when this nonsense all started.

Probably still the least offensive aspect of it mind you.

Big shamen on the beach?

Wtf does famalam mean? And kahoonas for that matter.

All words are made up. And kahuna is actually quite an old Hawaiian word for shaman.

Shakespeare made up hundreds of new words for which the English language is definitely better for.

Whoever came up with "famalam" should be shot though.
