In honor of this year's word of the year contenders that did not achieve first place from the people at Oxford Dictionary, these twerk-related finds explore this often satirized dance craze. The 2013 word of the year went to 'selfie,' but 'twerking' was not far behind. The popular dance move was thrust into the main stream after a video of Miley Cyrus twerking in an animal-themed onesie went viral. It became even more of a phenomenon after her controversial performance at the 2013 MTV VMAs.

Word of the year contenders, like twerking, suggest larger trends in popular culture. Many of these twerk-tastic finds are directly related to the former Disney star, taking the form of parodying art. Others are more fashionable in nature, like t-shirts.
