This is surely the most important question in our current economical and political situation of the world.

Nevermind though, I also wonder "stupid" things just for the kicks.

I myself don't really understand why we should not define what dictionary actually means. After all, we must know what it is to actually write one.

Not to be off topic here, but Coca Cola does own Fanta, and they have a grape soda.

BTW, the word Coke (capitalized) is in my dictionary and means: A trademark used for a softdrink. See Regional Note at tonic. I guess because Coke is a synonym for soda/pop, it is in the dictionary.

That word is also in my dictionary, along with Klaxon. (I always thought Klaxon was a word for a type of horn, but it is a name brand.)

You need an American Heritage Unabridged Dictionary. Mine has gullible and a few choice words that if I printed here could get me in trouble with the administrators. I spent a lot of money on it, but I want my dictionary to have a lot of words to look up as I like to do crossword puzzles.

Does it have the word "McJob"?

If not, your dictionary may be out of date.

Considering the way people are educated these days, I would not be surprised if the word wasn't the newer dictionaries.

And yes, I fell for it.
