Blogs are so over

I think we can all come to a friendly agreement that “blog” is not an attractive word. I know it makes sense in that it’s a combination of web and log, but I think it sounds more like something that comes out a baby’s diaper. “Little Timmy didn’t sleep well last night. He was crying for hours, plus he blogged all over himself.” So, obviously, a new word needs to be invented. Here’s my suggestions:

Blag: A combination of Blue and Fag. (The Euro word for cigarette you homophobe!) The word has to be pronounced with a British accent to get the full effect. I think if there were blue fags, EVERYBODY would write about them. More people would write about blue fags than blogs.

Blig: A combination of Blueberries and Pigs. Blueberry bacon. Best invention ever? I think so. Endless hours of Bligging would ensue.

Blug: A combo of Black and Bug. Kinda like a cockroach, but awesomer. You know what never dies? Cockroachs and Blugs.

Bleg: A combo of Outback Steakhouse’s Bloomin Onion, and a keg. Now picture someone hoisting your legs up for you to do a bleg stand. Could you resist writing about your experience doing a bleg stand? I think not.


Other suggestions are welcome, but they probably won't make as much sense as mine.

None of those even refer to actual blogging. You make absolutely no sense. You just wasted my time, not that my time is very valuable but still.

Tim said...

don't make sense?!?! You obviously have no idea what you're talking about.

I prefer Blug and Bleg...let the blegging blugging begin.

Or perhaps, bluke, like blabber and puke. Isn't that what we usually do? Vomit words onto the page?

Beebers said...

wow, pixie was pretty good with the bluke.

i want to see someone do a bleg stand. that could get messy if you want sauce to go with it.

i think our blogs should be called diary-ahs. it's like a diary, but a really crappy one.

I though "blag" was already a word. At least that's how they say "blog" in Ashkash, Wiscansin. (What up, Ritsy!)

Steph said...

i don't care for any of them. how about BLEX. use your imagination for that one.

Sean said...

how about a "blah". It's not a combination of anything its just how someone may feel after wasting countless hours of reading blogs.

Steph said...

Sean!! i thought that was our secret word!!! now i officially hate you.

Oh great One said...

Blick-A jerk of a blogger.

Chuck said...

Bleg sounds like a winner.

Either that or Blit: a combination of bloomers and tits. Whatcha think?

Spinning Girl said...

I've always found "blog" to be such an ungraceful word. Thanks for the alternatives!

Just said...

Blag is already a British slang term for getting something for free, as in, 'I went to the office party, but only so I could blag some free alcohol/canapes/etc', or 'I went to the family planning clinic and blagged a load of free condoms' or whatever.

None of your suggestions make sense. Sorry. I love Sean & Steph's 'Blah' idea, though.

M said...

if blog refers to diaper poo then I vote we keep blog because that would then be most appropriate, dammit!

Fidget said...
