Apple fanboys are now in the official dictionary definition of ‘sheeple’

Merriam-Webster just added the word ‘sheeple’ to its dictionary, defined as “people who are docile, compliant, or easily influenced :  people likened to sheep.”

You know who are often called sheeple? Apple fanboys – the ones who follow the crowd and buy whatever the company sells, no matter how useless, overpriced, or unoriginal (can you tell I’m a PC guy?).

Naturally, they made a perfect example for the term in the dictonary:

Apple’s debuted a battery case for the juice-sucking iPhone—an ungainly lumpy case the sheeple will happily shell out $99 for. 

That battery case is indeed atrocious, by the way. Kudos to Merriam-Webster for its accurate choice of example.
