Who You Tryin' To Get Crazy With Ese? Don't You Know I'm Locavore?


Whatever. The 2007 Oxford word of the year is "locavore," defined as people who only eat "food grown or produced within a 100-mile radius," who "also shun supermarket offerings as an environmentally friendly measure ..." Back in the 90's we also had a word for people like this: incorrigible yuppie scum. Locavore (note the alternate spelling: "localvore") was coined by a group of women in San Francisco. We're taking over the world people, one word at a time. (via sf.eater.com)
