Mirror, mirror on the wall…

I had reason to look up synonyms for the word ‘wicked’ on MSWord the other day.  Instead of offering me the suggestions I expected such as, perhaps… malicious, bad, evil, malevolent, I got… great, terrific, cool, fab and fantastic.

It made me wonder, as language evolves, what the future holds for The Wicked Stepmother of our childhood fairy tales?
