Whatever. The 2007 Oxford word of the year is "locavore," defined as people who only eat "food grown or produced within a 100-mile radius," who "also shun supermarket offerings as an environmentally friendly measure ..." Back in the 90's we also had a word for people like this: incorrigible yuppie scum. Locavore (note the alternate spelling: "localvore") was coined by a group of women in San Francisco. We're taking over the world people, one word at a time. (via sf.eater.com)
