Floccinaucinihilipilification is the new word breaking the internet, courtesy of Shashi Tharoor!
Seriously, who else did you think would come up with it?
Well, since we are all going to try to pronounce it unsuccessfully for the next decade, I thought we could all use some help.
Tharoor used the word on his Facebook post while promoting his new book about PM Modi.
Hell, this is going to use half the number of characters allowed for the headline of this article!
Well, for what’s it’s worth, Twitter is having a field day!
Google defines it as, ‘the action or habit of estimating something as worthless.’
