Why no WOY

Slog, nor slurge, nor snews was picked by Merriam-Webster as Word Of the Year for 2007. Instead, w00t - meaning "we owned the other team" - an interjection "expressing joy (it could be after a triumph, or for no reason at all); similar in use to the word 'yay.'"

w00t examples:
Week 3 – fall (triumph)
Week 7 – spring (triumph)
Slog (no reason at all)
