Ahhh, the dictionary. It's always there when you need it, whether you're leisurely reading a new novel or triple-checking that you used the word "penultimate" correctly in an essay.

But things aren't always pleasant in the land of dictionaries. Sometimes, reference books (or websites) about words have disagreements.

It started innocently enough: A simple sentence with a simple picture. "I like my coffee with cream and my literature with optimism," says an Abigail Reynolds quote that Dictionary.com tweeted out.

And then Merriam-Webster, always the elitist, had to go and butt in.

Oh. Snap.

Believe it or not, this isn't the first time dictionaries have gotten into a scrap on social media. Like last year, when an attempt by Harper Collins to call out Oxford totally backfired.
