What would be your New Addition to the Oxford Dictionary?

by All-Iranians

Words are still powerful, but they are now much shorter and full of capital letters.
Like LOL” (Laugh out Loud), OMG (Oh my God) and FYI (For your Information) which were added to the Oxford English Dictionary (OED) in the most recent update.
After those additions, OED noted that, “First quotation for OMG is from a personal letter from 1917; the letters LOL had a previous life, starting in 1960, and the entry for FYI, for example, shows it originated in the language of memoranda in 1941”.

Here are some other powerful words previously added to OED:
WAG = Wives and Girlfriends
TMI = Too much Information

All-Iranians suggest the following powerful words to be also added to the OED:

NBD = Not Big Deal

ISU = Iran Stand up

PAP = People are Powerful

ISF = I Speak Farsi

MBD = Marg bar Dictator

SAG = Seyed Ali Geda

What would be your New Addition to the Oxford Dictionary?

Please put down your new addition (s) on the comment section.
