  • A trending word!

  • Not just trending, double trending! (I see it twice in the list, is it a bug perhaps, or just really trendy?)

  • Fonk! Fonk! Where's frogapplause when there's Fonking to be done?

  • Am I imagining things now? I was sure that there was four(!) fonks in the trending list just now, but when I reloaded the page it went down to a more reasonable one Fonk level...

  • I think we figured out it's the weyant algorithm.

  • We're planning to have Algorithmic Weyant Watching at the Kon.
