Ever been plutoed?

Word of the Year 2006: plutoed
To "pluto" is "to demote or devalue someone or something"

climate canary (an organism or species whose poor health or declining numbers hint at a larger environmental catastrophe on the horizon)

Also considered:
murse (man's purse)
flog (a fake blog that promotes products)
macaca (an American citizen treated as an alien)

Has anyone used any of these words in conversation? Will you now?

I'll definitely start using 'plutoed'. Hope my blog doesn't get.
Plutoed, that is.
I also like Macaca, especially since I'm an Alien, and am treated as one.
Us damn foreigners, Eh?
