Smart saying “w00t” via text

So get this, i open up a sms message i received this morning and guess what was in the message from Smart promoting sunburn by sandwich ringtone: the internet slang w00t. yes, w00t. wtf?!? the first tme i used this was while spending my life in World of Warcraft.

Sure, Merriam Webster made it their word for the year and all but im surprised to see huge local corporations using it to promote non gaming related services.

1. (Internet slang) Used to express joy, particularly that felt during success or victory. as in “w00t I’ve won this special item.” [wiki]

Im personally waiting for Globe to use “dawg” as a counter. or maybe even “pWn3d“.
