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?

mup·pet [ múppit ] (plural mup·pets)
noun

1. A foolish or stupid person.
2. A person of profound mental retardation having a mental age below three years and generally being unable to learn connected speech or guard against common dangers. The term belongs to a classification system no longer in use and is now considered offensive.

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.

I may actually be insane.

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.
