Seinfeld on the word “blog”

Jerry Seinfeld on The Daily Show:

Is that the worst new word of the culture, blog? It’s so unattractive. It’s like something that you spit up and its, it has like, it congeals, and is, you know, and you kick dirt on it.

I couldn’t agree more. I’ve always disliked the word, although to me it sounds more like something you have to call a plumber to deal with after having drained a couple of bottles of some caustic agent down the toilet, in an unsuccessful attempt to eliminate the “blog”. It’s even worse as a verb – “I blogged it” instead of having simply written something, as people have been doing for several thousand years.
