It's old news by new that Merriam-Webster's most-searched word of the year was "blog." It's really not that surprising, although I wonder why anybody thought that word would be in an actual dictionary. Did they also look up the colon-parenthesis smiley face?
Anyway, what is surprising is that the seventh-most searched word was "peloton." No, I don't know what the hell a peloton is and no, I'm not going to look it up right now and find out and then pretend I knew what it was all along. But still, aren't you curious? I am. Let's take a look.
Main Entry: peloton
Definition: a small group of soldiers; platoon
Etymology: French `platoon'
Oh. More war terminology. Yawn. I was hoping it was something sexual.
