BIRD'S NOT THE WORD



It seems Pluto finally is getting some respect.

The American Dialect Society has chosen plutoed, meaning to demote or devalue someone, as the 2006 Word of the Year.

It won over climate canary, an organism or species whose poor health or declining numbers hint at a larger environmental catastrophe on the horizon.

To see more winners, such as boomeritis or lactard, in other categories go to
American Dialect Society on the Web.

I'm sure you'll find it an interesting read. Who would have thought there was such a word as firecrotch?

P.S. Imagine this is a picture of Pluto and not the moon.

Whatever happened to "truthiness",Stephen Colbert's word from his show "The Colbert Report" ? By the way, "firecrotch "was a derogatory comment aimed at Lindsay Lohan by former BFF Paris Hilton and crew...
