So duh wan!

"I think I have to pluto that piece of Ikea furniture since one screw is missing."

PLUTO? I hear you asking? Yeap, pluto as in the ex-planet ...erm, the planet that's been axed, so it is official an ex-planet in our solar system is now a word. This is what the American Dialect Society's president, Mr. Cleveland Evans said, "Our members believe the great emotional reaction of the public to the demotion of Pluto shows the importance of Pluto as a name. We may no longer believe in the Roman god Pluto, but we still have a sense of personal connection with the former planet." Consequently, the word Pluto has officially become 2006's Word of the Year (clap clap).

The definition of "pluto" or to "pluto" is "to demote or devalue someone or something," much like what happened to the former planet last year when the General Assembly of the International Astronomical Union decided Pluto didn't meet its definition of a planet.

"Plutoed" won in a runoff against "climate canary," defined as "an organism or species whose poor health or declining numbers hint at a larger environmental catastrophe on the horizon."
Other words considered: murse (man's purse, DON'T LAUGH.), flog (a fake blog that promotes products) and macaca (an American citizen treated as an alien). Yahoo news

Cool, right? Let's make a sentence using these words:

"You hired another macaca after you have plutoed the other one because he was supposedly carrying a pink murse to work and started a flog selling Penis Enlargement pills?"


I have a word that we often used back in college days ... arghh... how I miss those days. Arcade, mamak sessions till 4am, drinking beer at the garden, meeting up dodgy strangers thinking that they're sincerely wanting a friendship (cue: "Yellow", Coldplay). Sigh... ok, ok... i digress. Yeah, we love to use this word often used by our good fren JL back in college, "Duh".

I know it is a common word and Homer Simpson has his own version -D'oh! But, our version is quite different cos we used it in every context possible. For instance, if a fren is late for a club's meeting and he got scolding from the Editor/President, we'd said, "ter-duh already". Here how it's used in a conversation.

"You know, JT tried to make a pass on big boobs *Sim last night at the playground but big boobs Sim grabbed hold of him and started punching his face," said round face *Moon.

"So duh wan! Go get some porn and wank lah", replied pimply faced *Shawn.

"I know! Now, everyone ter-duh already at the meeting this morning cos of what happened last night. Blardy JT should know better than making a pass on big boobs Sim. Now her fat legs girlfriend suurre gonna come after him."

"Yeah, lesbian bashing! Hahahahaha," Shawn snorted.

"Duh lah you, " round face Moon rolled her eyes.

*The names have been changed to protect the interest of the person.
