Stoned at AskOxford?

From the AskOxford Word of the Day (emphasis added):

[Brit. dyoo-LOH-sis; US d(y)oo-LOH-sis] the technical term for the enslavement of ants, by ants. The adjective is dulotic.

Sadly, there has never been an ant Abraham Lincoln, so there is no ant Emancipation Proclamation, or even any ant Harriet Beecher Stowe.

It's a good thing they took the time to add that last part. Yep. Ant Emancipation Proclamation. Way to go, guys.
