Jun 24 Word of the Day
An exclamation made when your friends or family are teasing you to a point where you can't handle it anymore and a hissy fit is in order.

Derived from a YouTube user's famed outburst following Britney's lackluster performance at the 2007 VMA's.
Sarah: 'OMG Susan, I can't believe you are wearing the same skirt as yesterday. Oh, and by the way, EVERYONE knows what you did with Kevin on the weekend. Plus you look a little fat, are you retaining water?'

An allowlist is a directory of specific elements that are allowed, e.g. email addresses, IP addresses or URLs etc.

An allowlist has the same meaning as a whitelist in computer and tech industry.
Allowlist like block list are much more intuitive and descriptive than whitelist and blacklist and don't have subliminal racist associations- blacklist = block and whitelist = allow.
