Those wacky Germans are at it again

So apparently the publishers of a German dictionary company have voted on the best new made up words this year.  The winner:

Gammelfleishparty or "spoiled meat party".  Pleasant.

Here's a quote

Judges chose "gammelfleischparty", or "spoiled meat party," — an unflattering term for a gathering of people over 30 — as the "youth word of the year 2008." The word "gammelfleisch" was in the news frequently during the year when it was discovered that meat packers had been regularly supplying some kebab restaurants with past-due products.

I'm not sure what else to say here.
