The world loves slang. A way of speaking that was once considered taboo, these days, some people only talk using informal words.

Urban Dictionary does a pretty stellar job of keeping up with the changing vocabulary and times.

The website is a crowdsourced online dictionary of slang words and phrases that was founded in 1999 as a parody of Dictionary.com. But what started as a joke has taken on a life of its own. The website is now the go-to source for kids and adults to find out the definition of a new term they heard a friend, co-worker or character on TV use in conversation. It’s now one of the top 200 websites in the entire world.

Urban Dictionary is constantly adding new terms and even allows users to vote on which slang stays or goes. Some of the terms are downright hilarious, while others, well they’re just trying too hard.

Here’s a list of Urban Dictionary terms sure to catch fire in 2018 so start using them before anyone else. (And then stop using them when everyone else does).
