Are you desperately searching for that perfect triple-word score? Well, Scrabble is here to help.

The Scotsman is reporting that Scrabble has added everything from slang to social media to the Collins Official Scrabble Words book.

Yep, that means you can now play such words as “grrl,” “thang,” “innit,” “Facebook” and “MySpace.” (We’re totally blaming AT&T for this one.)

Editor Robert Groves says that the word additions, which total 3,000, are “an eclectic mix of new technological jargon, overseas English, recent colloquialisms, street slang, and a few phrases that had not made it on to the list until now.”

This marks the first revision to the Collins dictionary since 2007. I am not down with new words, and I can’t believe 3,000 new words. Perhaps we should drop some words!

If this news isn’t ridiculous enough already, check out this infamous Scrabble commercial from 1990.
