    November 26, 2009

  • I'd thought about calling myself A Wordnik Formerly Known as Wordie. But I don't know how it would look on a t-shirt. ;-)

    Speaking of which, I'd like to make you all envious by telling you that I'm the proud owner of an original Wordie crappuccino mug and am now worth billions.

    And gangerh, I'm all for that t-shirt store!

    November 24, 2009

  • I lurves picnics on The Porch!

  • 'twouldn't be too difficult to set up a '• Words and phrases that I would love to have on a Wordie T-shirt' T-shirt store. If someone wants to, let me know. I'll send the know-how. Prolagus? It's your list.

    November 21, 2009

  • Goodness... I always suspected there was a wordie store somewhere, I just wasn't sure where.

    Drats!

    November 21, 2009

  • Wordie merch seems to be still available. However, there are still only two items available.

    November 21, 2009

  • I think we should all get off the internet and be picnickers. Over at the Porch.

    November 21, 2009

  • All your base are belong to Wordnik.

    November 20, 2009

  • What about the old Wordie merchandise? Is it now being auctioned online for bazillions as collectors' items?

    November 20, 2009

  • Are wordknickers now available from the merchandising department? I'd buy me a pair. Boxers, please.

    November 20, 2009

  • *snort*

    (It's "Who's on first." No "base.")

    November 20, 2009

  • Exactly.

    November 20, 2009

  • ok... that just repeated itself...

    November 20, 2009

  • Isn't that like 'Who's on first base'?

    November 20, 2009

  • Isn't that like 'Who's on first base'?

    November 20, 2009

  • No, that's the first baseman.

    November 20, 2009

  • Doctor Who.

    November 20, 2009

  • Doctor who?

    November 20, 2009

  • Isn't Robotnik known as Doctor Eggman in Japan, anyway? Making Doctor Wordnik... Doctor Alphabetspaghettiman?

    November 20, 2009

  • Doctor Wordnik better be related to Doctor Robotnik, else I shall be quite put out!

    November 20, 2009

  • We are the knights who say Wordni'!

    p.s. What's up with the effing brackets?

    November 20, 2009

  • Yes! -nikkers is pants!

    (Does that trans-atlantic?)

    November 20, 2009

  • Of course we can be Wordies on Wordnik. Let's say that Doctor Wordnik imbibed a certain potion and now exhibits the Mister Wordie personality at times: Doctor Wordnik is a suave yet slightly serious soul who devotes his life to learnedly helping people sort through meanings and collect etymologies, while Mister Wordie is the charming but disorganised and slightly crazy personality who just likes to hang around poking fun at Vexamples.

    (I also dislike '-nikkers', because it sounds exactly like knickers, which is wholly misleading.)

    November 20, 2009

  • I don't like the "nikkers" ending because it sounds like a popular slang of "niggers" and I don't like that word. It hurts my feelings. Wordniks is my vote -- if we can't just be wordies on wordnik.

    November 20, 2009

  • WORDnIkkErS!

    November 20, 2009

  • Wordies remind me of hippies. It's a match made in heaven! ;-)

    November 20, 2009

  • Wordniks reminds me of beatniks.

    November 20, 2009

  • I'm having second thoughts about "Wordnikkers". It does sound frightful, and I'm easily frightened.

    November 20, 2009

  • Yes--but watch out for Wordnikie's aphasia.

    November 20, 2009

  • Hee.

    I like that, or Wordnikies

    November 20, 2009

  • But what about future products of interbreeding? Weldniks?

    November 20, 2009

  • Native Wordniks are called Wordniks. Immigrant Wordniks from Wordie should be Weirdniks.

    November 20, 2009

  • Oh, would it be Wordnikmitzeitgeistnikkwordien? (Sorry, I don't speak German.)

    November 20, 2009

  • WordnikmitZeitgeistnichtWordien?

    November 20, 2009

  • No, there are other Wordie-like things still to do. Like tagging!

    November 20, 2009

  • Wouldn't we be Zeitgeisties? Or perhaps Zeitgeisters?

    November 20, 2009

  • I think I would just say Wordniks. -nik is a perfectly good Slavonic suffix similar to our dear old -ie. Besides, that double k is frightful.

    November 20, 2009

  • Surely 'surreptitiously overrun'? (Where surreptitiously is defined as noisily.)

    November 20, 2009

  • wordnikkers - this is a hold up?

    November 20, 2009

  • I say "former Wordies" because Wordieland is no more. Many of us are Wordie immigrants trying to assimilate in a strange, new land: Wordnikland.

    November 20, 2009

  • Used to hold up the pants of former Wordies.
