    • I support this, though am concerned that confident tangle may technically be a phrase rather than a word, and I imagine the OED people are sticklers for rules.

      That aside, I think the following may speed the acceptance of confident tangle into common parlance:

      1. The phrase “confident tangle” is mentioned in the British Houses of Parliament. A good place for this might be in forthcoming debates over the UK’s EU membership. Suggested phrase: “The UK’s global position is strengthened by its intertwining with the confident tangle of European economic collectivism.” UK straddlers – get writing to your MP.

      2. A giant billboard campaign features an image of a tousle-haired androgyne along the highways of Los Angeles, with the tagline “You’re looking very confident tangle today.”

      3. Hillary Clinton has a makeover for her 2016 campaign, attempting to soften her image with a softer, less formal hairstyle. Of the 8000 media takes on the subject, over half mention how her new confident tangle is the game-changer that will propel her to presidential victory.
