Urban Dictionary name trend takes over Instagram and Twitter


Social media users flock to Urban Dictionary to search for their names and some of the results are far from complementary.

The latest social media trend isn’t as dangerous as escalating milk crates or illegal like “sneaky licks,” but brings humor to definitions of names, politics, and video games.

Urban Dictionary was founded in 1999 by Aaron Peckham as a crowdsourced dictionary for slang words. Over the past two decades, the site has grown to include definitions for just about anything.

A quick search of McDonald’s or “Game of Thrones” brings up user-submitted definitions that are more hilarious than real. Some other terms (don’t search for arm barn) have incorrect grammar or spelling and include the NSFW language.
