A saying pointing out when a word is a word.

Used sarcastically when someone uses a word that doesn't truly fit the person or situation.

If overused, side effects may occur, like making a person sound overly pessismistic, 'ironic' or emo.
Example 1:

In McDonalds

John: Here's your cheeseburger.

Jake: I hate gherkin.

John: (picks out gherkin)

John: Happy?

Jake: That's a word.

Example 2:

In the snow

Jake: I hate snow.

John: (hands over coat)

John: Warm?

Jake: That's a word.
