Ginormous is a Huge Word!

Ginormous is such a real word! It really is. And even if it isn't, it is to me. So there!

But lots of people know that it's a real word. Merriam Webster says so

According to this article, Merriam-Webster traces ginormous back to 1948, when it appeared in a British dictionary of military slang.

So it's been around for a long time. And everyone uses it:

From the movie "Elf":
Have you seen these toilets? They're GINORMOUS!

Even Simon Cowell once said: "I think it was the best performance of the night so far. Where with Crystal we're used to consistency, the difference with you from week to week has been ginormous. It was your stamp on the song . . ."

So it must be real!
