Merriam-Webster word of the year isn’t even a word

w00t!So, Merriam-Webster conducted a poll of what their visitors thought the word of the year was.

w00t… w-zero-zero-t

This isn’t a word people, it’s a sound.  It’s like the dictionary adding “d’oh” from The Simpsons, it annoys me as it is not a real word.  Sounds should not be in the dictionary, I’m sorry, but I just don’t think they should be.

While w00t hasn’t made it yet, it could, especially with this backing it, which make me think I will never, ever, use this word again for any reason…
