A daily email sent to those on the Urban Dictionary newsletter mailing list. The 'Urban Word of the Day' is the word and definition selected for the day's newsletter. Most of these receive instant thumbs downs, as they are somewhat random, and most of the good words on this site are already taken.
As of today, 'SOML', 'iflml', and 'going multiball' are the three latest 'Urban Word of the Day's. Each has at least twice as many downward thumbs as there are thumbs up.

Can be abbreviated "UWOTD"

A daily e-mail informing people of a stupid definition of a usually pre-existing word submitted by an anonymous source on the internet. Many find said words to be "clever" or "funny".

While many who receive this e-mail take pleasure in learning something humorous each day, inevitably it becomes an annoyance when the recipient doesn't check his/her e-mail for days at a time, causing a slight inconvenience when they have to read up to several definitions in one sitting.
Frank: "Hey Tom, did you see today's Urban Word of the Day? Funny stuff!"

Tom: "Oh don't get me started! I had to read like 10 of those today! I haven't checked my e-mail in over a week!"
