Notwords Addition: To Google

No Comments

You hear a lot of people say, “I googled it,” when referring to the process of finding something via Web search on [tag]Google[/tag].  This certainly works in the vernacular, but come on, google as a verb in a Notword of the first magnitude.  (That being said, I wouldn’t be surprised to find it in the dictionaries soon, if not already.)

The first equivalent usage to google as a verb that comes to mind is “to bork,” as in raking someone over the personal integrity coals as the Democrats did to Supreme Court nominee Robert Bork.

What’s next, to iraq?  “We iraqqed that country,” meaning to invade and take over another nation and then get caught in a quagmire.
