I found The Dictionary in an antique bookstore. Not _A_ Dictionary. _The_ Dictionary. The one that prescriptivists keep banging on about.

How do I know? I took a pencil and wrote a definition for “irregardless” into it, and thereafter no one complained about the word again.

My job now is to write every new word I hear into The Dictionary. Today, I’m finally making “fetch” happen.
