The American Dialect Society in the month of January meets annually. It selects the word of the year for the previous year. This can be a phrase.

On January 7, 2011, the ADS selected "app" for 2010.

I do not see how anything can beat "kick the can." I have 2.1 trillion reasons for this -- maybe 2.4 trillion.
