  Buzz words
Updated 22 January 2002, 12.52
What's your favourite buzz word?
The Oxford Online Dictionary is a bit behind with the latest words and has only just added Girl Power as a new entry.

We think you could do better!

If you had the chance to put 'in' words in the dictionary, what would you choose?

Remember, it's a dictionary so you must include the meaning.

Or do you think 'buzz' words are not proper words at all and should be left out dictionaries altogether?
