WoTY W00t!

I’m going to try something bold, and see if I can post an image here…somehow, it never seems to go as smoothly as I hope it will.

W00t! (not Woot) — a word I first came across in online groups just like this one — is officially the Merriam Webster Word of the Year (WoTY) for 2007.

So, for no particular reason, I decided to plot it’s dramatic emergence…hence, my image:

W00t!  I think it worked! 

But…what the heck was going on in 2000!!!!  Oodles of W00ts! at Millennium celebrations?  W00tsclamations about Y2K?
