I once saw a forklift lift a crate of forks, it was way too literal for me

Apparently “literally” literally doesn’t literally mean “literally” any more. To signify something is intended in a literal manner or sense, exactly, you now have to follow it with “and I’m not even joking”, and I’m not even joking.

    This just means that the new way to be original is to use the original meaning.

    Separate from that, this is going to have some interesting implications in courts.
    Prosecutor: “After the victim called you an idiot, what did you do?”
    Defendant: “I literally shot him in the face.”
    Prosecutor: “So you were very mad?”
    Defendant: “Uh, yes?”
    Judge: “Being mad is not a crime. You’re free to go.”
