It’s official. The Oxford English Dictionary has added “Scooby snack” to the English lexicon, Entertainment Weekly reports.
The phrase first appeared as part of the original Hanna-Barbera animated series, Scooby-Doo, Where Are You!, which ran from 1969 to 1970.
“Scooby snack” wasn’t the only addition to the OED this year. Words like glamping, listicle, stupid o’ clock, and power couple also made the cut. And if you’re wondering what exactly is the definition of a “Scooby snack,” here’s what the OED says:
A snack, esp. given as a reward or inducement; spec. a bite-sized treat or a large multilayered sandwich (likened to those eaten by the cartoon character Scooby Doo)… Also: food eaten to satisfy a hunger induced by drinking, smoking, or drug use.”
What do you think? Are you a fan of Scooby Doo? Do you use the phrase “Scooby snack”?
