Words and Phrases that Should Exist but Probably Don't

Notes from ClifNotes, Nov 2007, permalink Cool Website


I often feel the urge to sign up for new free web services. I call this web2omania (web-TOO-oh-may-ni-a), and it can lead to inbox overflow. I signed up a few weeks ago for a service called Squidoo that lets you create and share wiki-blog-sites that are called Lens.


This week, I found a Lens called "words-and-phrases-that-should-exist". Below are a few of the wacky words I found there.
