You have got to be kidding me

The Oxford English Dictionary recently amended its definition of the word "literally." Check out the new secondary description.

in a literal manner or sense; exactly:

   • the driver took it literally when asked to go straight across the traffic

   • informal used for emphasis or to express strong feeling while not 
     being literally true:
     I have received literally thousands of letters
