Merriam-Webster Defines “Sheeple” as Diehard Apple Fans

The good folks over at Merriam-Webster are always looking to keep up with the times. Things changes and so do the words we use, adding new ones and subtracting those we don’t hear too often anymore. Well, today Merriam-Webster returns to the news feed, adding the word “Sheeple” to the mix.

The ‘new word’ singles out Apple’s biggest fans, as the definition defines sheeple as ”people who are docile, compliant, or easily influenced.” The word then comes with a flawless example used by CNN writer Doug Criss who said: “Apple’s debuted a battery case for the juice-sucking iPhone—an ungainly lumpy case the sheeple will happily shell out $99 for.” Interesting news. Are you part of the “Sheeple?” Let us know and keep it locked for more news coming soon!
