Let us celebrate with w00t beer

This year's Merriam-Webster word of the year is much more useful than "truthiness."

1. w00t (interjection)
expressing joy (it could be after a triumph, or for no reason at all);
similar in use to the word "yay"
  1. facebook

  2. conundrum

  3. quixotic

  4. blamestorm

  5. sardoodledom

  6. apathetic

  7. Pecksniffian

  8. hypocrite

  9. charlatan
For what it's worth, "Pecksniffian" means "unctuously hypocritical," and comes from the name of a Dickens character. I'm kinda amazed I've never heard it on "Family Guy."
