We expect that most folks won't need to look up the definition. But just in case, "f-bomb" now has its own entry in the Merriam-Webster's Collegiate Dictionary.
And no, the entry doesn't appear to be illustrated with a image of recent vice presidents (Biden and Cheney), who have been known to drop an f-bomb from time-to-time.
The other 14 new entries in this year's update of the dictionary:
— aha moment
— bucket list
— cloud computing
— energy drink
— game changer
— man cave
— systemic risk
