Give A W00t For The Word Of The Year

Merriam Webster has decided on the "Word of the Year"
"W00t," a hybrid of letters and numbers used by gamers as an exclamation of happiness or triumph, topped all other terms in the Springfield-based dictionary publisher's online poll for the word that best sums up 2007.
I was more interested in the runners-up:
Some also-rans in the 2007 list: the use of "facebook" as a verb to signify using the Web site by that name; nuanced terms such as "quixotic," "hypocrite" and "conundrum"; and "blamestorm," a meeting in which mistakes are aired, fingers are pointed and much discomfort is had by all.
Seems like a blamestorm is alot like a sandstorm--except that Palestinians are immune.
