Merriam-Webster's Word of the Year this year is "W00t."
The exclamation, meaning "Hey, I won the videogame contest!" was chosen for its relevance and its whimsy.
"It shows a really interesting thing that's going on in language. It's a term that's arrived only because we're now communicating electronically with each other," Morse said.
Also-rans for the word of the year include "Facebook" as a verb (IE: "I facebooked your mom.") and "blamestorm" a made-up word that describes a meeting in which blame is assigned.
As a public service to our readers: Please do not say "w00t!" aloud. It makes people want to punch you and makes girls never want to sleep with you.
