uh

I'd vote for manscaping. After all, that's almost a public service so we should all vote for it.

BBC headline "Australians vote on word of 2007".

Other choices include:
Password fatigue: Frustration caused by having too many passwords and failing to remember them
Manscaping: Male grooming procedures involving the removal of body hair
Tanorexia: An obsessive desire to have tanned skin
Credit card tart: Someone who transfers loans to a new card when the interest-free period of the first card expires
Salad dodger: an overweight person
Microgrom: a surfer under the age of 10

Full story here.


Remember the American word of the year was the very exciting "subprime".
