And now, people want to change ‘No’ to ‘Yesn’t’

Surprisingly more than 30,000 people have signed the petition and it is the latest online craze.

New Delhi: You may have had an overdose of news from Karnataka, or the royal wedding pile up on your timeline, so here’s something to tickle the weird in your brain. Ladies and gentleman, we present to you: “Yesn’t.”

This is Urban Dictionary’s definition for the word:

If you’re wondering what on earth is ‘maby’, it’s another new term to express uncertainity, but it’s not quite similar to the traditional ‘maybe’, rather it is “when a woman’s pregnancy has not yet been confirmed by a doctor the potential baby is referred to as a “maybe baby” or maby for short. ‘Maby’ may be used up until the birth of the baby in order to avoid jinxing the pregnancy.

While ‘Yesn’t’ actually dates back to a 2008 Urban Dictionary post that defines the word as meaning “maby yes and maby no,” it hit the internet again when a petition was submitted to Change.org calling to change the word “No” in the English language to “Yesn’t.”

Surprisingly more than 30,000 people have signed the petition and it is the latest online craze following the ‘Yanny and Laurel’ debate, an audio illusion. The petition is viral and effectively asks signatories to agree to speaking child-like gibberish.

And of course, by the order of natural progression, it was only a matter of time before other creations of similar words like “non’t” became a thing!

Here are the memes doing rounds in twitter:

Bet you can’t take it any longer! Well someone seems to realise the problem:
