Anything worth talking about, is worth blogging about

The American Dialect Society has chosen its words of the year and word of the decade.

  • The word of the decade was “google”, meaning to search the internet.
  • The word of the year was “tweet”, meaning a short message sent through Twitter, or the act of so doing.
  • Most Useful was “fail”, as in “FAIL”.
  • Most Creative was “Dracula sneeze”, the act of sneezing into your elbow.
  • Most Unnecessary was “sea kittens”, PETA’s euphemism for fish.
  • Most Outrageous was “death panel”, those non–existent committees of doctors that will euthanize your grandma (thank you Sarah).
  • Most Euphemistic was “hike the Appalachian Trail”, to have sex with a secret lover.
  • Most Likely to Succeed was “twenty–ten”, the name of the year 2010.
  • Least Likely to Succeed was any term used to refer to the last decade.
