What Should Be the Word of the Decade?

Yesterday we revealed that the New Oxford American Dictionary chose "unfriend" as the word of the year. Many of you thought it should be something like "sexting," or "de-friend" at least.

Since we're headed toward a new decade, this story got me thinking about which lexicon newcomer would make a good word of the decade. BellaSugar suggested a Bushism like "misunderestimated," or perhaps "text" or "FAIL." Based on the high number of depressing things that happened this decade, I'd say "FAIL" makes an excellent candidate.

You all seem to have a good read on which words have "lex-appeal," so tell me what you would choose as the word of the decade.
