Choruses of evil laughter broke out across the world as the Oxford Dictionary announced the addition of the word "mwahahaha" to the dictionary. The official dictionary of the phrase is as follows:
used to represent laughter, especially manic or cackling laughter such as that uttered by a villainous character in a cartoon or comic strip:
World domination, at last, is at hand. Mwahahaha!
Villains everywhere rejoiced at the news that their particular brand of laughter finally had a clear delineation between the more joyous "bwahahaha" often associated with slapstick B-list superheroes.
"DOOM is pleased by the Oxford Dictionary's decision to give a listing for the preferred Latverian form of laughter," said Doctor Doom, a well-known Marvel antagonist.
"I, too, am pleased by this turn of events," added Lex Luthor, a Superman foe from the DC Universe. "Often, I've had to choose between laughing in a grammatically incorrect manner or not laughing at all. Now, I'll be able to rid myself of this conundrum and focus my energies of ridding the world of the alien threat."
Even some heroes were happy to hear the addition. "It's good to know I have options," said Cyclops, a Marvel hero currently flirting with permanent villainy in the pages of Avengers Vs. X-Men. "I was worried that I wouldn't be able to laugh once my evil transformation was complete. Barrier removed!"
"In my native Amazonian tongue, we have four different ways of expressing evil laughter," added Wonder Woman. "However, one is a solid start for the inferior English language."
However, not everyone was pleased by the news. "The grammar branch of the Nazi party was distraught to hear about Oxford's decision to change the rules of English once again," said the Red Skull, leader of neo-Nazi forces. "We will have to wage a glorious and evil war in order to reclaim mwahahaha from the hands of the English so that we can once again hold a grammatical superiority to our foes. Mwahahaha!"
