Saturday Word of the Day: Meta

*Meta: pertaining to or noting a story, character, etc., that consciously references or comments upon its own subject or features, often in the form of parody.

“OH MY GOSH! That play was sooo meta!”

“I KNOW, it was AWESOME!”

“I’m confused why was that play awesome? and also what was it about?”

“ERMAHGERD Ryan that play was awesome because it was WAY WAY meta!”

“And like it was about a play.”

“A play…about a play?”

“Yes! And that’s why its meta.”

“SUPER meta because the actors in the play criticised the acting, and because the playwright who was acting in the play criticised the writing!”

“Okay, so its meta because its a parody of itself and its awesome because its meta?”

“YES, YES, YES!”

“You nailed it Ryan.”

“Meta is so confusing.”
