Even though Oprah Winfrey's talk show is finally off the air, her catch-phrase "aha moment" has been forever immortalized in the Merriam-Webster dictionary.
Merriam-Webster adds new words to its definitive dictionary every year. This year, for better or worse, “aha moment,” made it in.
If you happen to look up “aha moment” here is the definition that you will find: "A moment of sudden realization, inspiration, insight, recognition, or comprehension."
This is similar to the moment of realization that Western civilization is now doomed, which many men felt when “aha moment” was added to the dictionary.
