“w00t” Webster Word of the Year

Yes, ladies and gentleman, it appears that Webster’s has choosen the venerable term “w00t” as its 2007 Word of the Year.

Now, not being too into online gaming I had no idea that’s where it had its origin. Or that it should be with zeros in the place of “o”‘s. Regardless, woot (the zeros are annoying) is a solid choice, as it can be used in a wide range of situations. For example:

– Changing lanes – “woot woot!”

– Excitement – “I found a beer! Woot!”

– Surprise – “Woot! I’m scared!”

– Sadness – “I’m all alone. Woot.”

– Happiness – “Jimsey’s here! Woot!”

Note: Thanks to Gwen for the tip.
