Double Plus Google

As you make your rounds, from this blog to that blog, you may have noticed a shift in the word verifications as you prepare to submit your commentary. Instead of Bungst (n. Anxiety produced over the consumption of wheat based foods.) you get Army. Rather than Prib (v. To tickle from behind so as to gain physical advantage.) you see Bread.

What's this? These words already exist.

Never fear. When these words arrive in your word verification, trust that the good folks at Google have altered their meanings to create full new words. Don't worry yourself over the learnings of yesterday. Open yourself to the revised language of the future!
