LANSING, Mich. (AP) -- The word "selfie" is spoken even at the Michigan Supreme Court.
Selfie refers to someone who takes their own picture, usually with a smartphone. Chief Justice Robert Young Jr. used the word Wednesday when talking about a Detroit-area judge who took a picture of his fit, shirtless frame and sent it to a female sheriff's deputy.
Justice Bridget McCormack jumped in and said, "I want the record to reflect that the chief justice just used the word `selfie."'
Young, a conservative, bow-tied justice, says it shows that he's in tune with today's culture.
Britain's Oxford University Press recently declared "selfie" the word of the year. It publishes Oxford dictionaries.
