is supercalifragilisticexpealidocious in the dictionary?

a question i wondered on my drive home as i listened to the classic song from disc two of my five cd disney set, and while wikipedia pays tribute to the word, merriam and webster have decided to continuing shunning this well known word (probably due to the lack of a definition), but have definitely admitted the word ‘woot’.  i don’t begrudge them this, because i use the word woot all the time, and they have just legitimacized by own idiocy (score!).

 update: definitely found it on dictionary.com.  and it has a definition! “a nonsense word meaning fantastic”.  yeah, that sounds about right.  this is from the “webster’s new millenium dictionary of english language”.  even better, it says the word was “popularized” on mary poppins.  popularized?  that implies it existed before mary poppins, and i’m pretty sure that was the source.  hilarious.

 also, for those who don’t know, woot stands for ‘we owned the other team’, but i’m pretty liberal with it’s use.
