Giffed to omnishambles

Oxford dictionary chooses word of the year — one for U.K., one for U.S. - "Britain’s . . . Word of the Year: “omnishambles.” Oxford University Press on Tuesday crowned the word — defined as “a situation that has been comprehensively mismanaged, characterized by a string of blunders and miscalculations” — its top term of 2012. . . . This year’s American champion is “gif,” short for graphics interchange format, a common format for images on the Internet. . . . Cute kittens, Olympic champions, President Obama — they’ve all been giffed."

OK, we've all been giffed to omnishambles--where's the recovery?
