    I was just composing a proposal to my boss about some of our regional administrators, make your own assumptions.

    I noticed that "muppet" had a redline underneath it, telling me it was a spelling mistake... oh right? One of the suggestions was "Muppet" which of course is your Miss Piggy, Kermit th eFrog kinda thing.

    Now I tell thee...

    If a word like ladette can make it into the dictionary why the **** can't muppet be in there?

    are you calling someone a muppet for something they did?
    i don't think it'd be professional to use this particular word in a document, unless of course you are using it in terms of Kermit and Co. which uses the "M" in Muppet.

    It's more professional than calling them a ****wit, which will be censored by the time I post this, but you get the idea ;)

    Muppet is a very professional term used in many businesses every day.

    Anyway... back to the point... who do we need to e-mail/write to/call/pester to get Muppet into the dictionary? :D

    It isn't a published document, was more of a memo.
