Today’s Word Spy Word of the Day is bridezilla:

“Today’s word is a combination of bride and Godzilla, the mutant dinosaur created by U.S. hydrogen bomb testing in the Pacific that, in numerous films in the 50s and 60s, would wade onto land and destroy everything in its path. The bridal version of this monster is created by the maniacal need to have ‘the perfect day’ and she’ll walk over anyone and everything to get it.”

Other recent words include metrosexual (great word) and war chalking.
