It’s April Fools’ Day. So all kinds of pranks are showing up on the internet. Oxford Dictionaries is getting in on it too. Most of them are kind of lame. But then there’s this one, a new verb:

Leo, verb to achieve something after years of trying: “I feel like I’ve Leoed this morning; I finally passed my driving test.” [from the name of Leonardo DiCaprio, with allusion to his winning the 2016 Academy Award for Best Actor after six unsuccessful nominations.]

So, basically, Leo is the new Susan Lucci. Excellent. And totally, totally how he wants to be seen, right? (Thanks SJ!)

In other Leo news, here’s what Britney posted on Instagram yesterday for #tbt.

She’s not telling us when this happened. I’m going to guess around 2003/2004. She would have been 23ish, well within his age range, if you want to believe it went down. I can’t see that going down. I also can’t see her posting an old shot of herself with Ben Affleck. But I do love that Britney’s giving us this kind of random nostalgia that we didn’t even know was nostalgia.
