Oxford Dictionaries Online, the Oxford name's younger, hipper sister, has added a new list of words to its repertoire. The additions mark the longest list ever added at one time.

Some of the words added include "five second rule" (yes, it's an official thing now) and "ObamaCare." There are also phrases like "duck face," "chile con queso," "cool beans," and "the ant's pants."
