Pluto In The News...Again!

But this time, it's kind of a good thing! The word "plutoed" has been chosen by the American Dialect Society as the 2006 Word of the Year! What an honor to follow the 2005 Word of the Year, won by Dr. Stephen T. Colbert D.F.A, "truthiness."

Plutoed - to demote or devalue someone or something, as happened to the former planet Pluto when the General Assembly of the International Astronomical Union decided Pluto no longer met its definition of a planet.

So consider yourself warned, people! This word - plutoed - will be added to my vernacular. You can count on it! It would probably be best if you added it to yours too.

Want more info? Or want to read about the almost winners? Here ya go...
