definition of the day

I was pleased to find that the most recent edition of the New Oxford American Dictionary includes the word "McMansion," defining it as "a large modern house that is considered ostentatious and lacking in architectural integrity. ORIGIN: from Mc- + mansion, with reference to the name of a restaurant chain." I'm not sure why I find this definition so satisfying, but I do think I might have to make the Definition of the Day a semi-regular feature of this blog.
