Skip to comments.Apparently “Borked” has become an English word
Posted on 11/24/2019 8:23:46 PM PST by newbie 10-21-00
I play a dopey Internet Words with Friends game, its Scrabble. Certain words were on the board and I had my seven letter tablets It came to me instantly and I thought, no way in hell. I played Borked and was rewarded with 42 points, probably my second best of all time. I would post the screenshot I took but, going through the FR woodpile or whatever its called, I dont have the BS, PHD and NWO or whatever skills to post it. Believe it or Borking not, a true story
Yes, over thirty years ago.
how about lewinski or schiffed
I think EPSTEINED will also become a verb in the American lexicon.
“Ponzi scheme” became part of our English language.
But Madoff actually swindled more money from more people than Ponzi himself.
“Madoff Scheme” should be added to the lexicon for posterity to learn what happened.
Grubered and harfing
Good to remember how the Democrat Party began its abuse the confirmation process decades ago for rank political gain.
Schiffed up and Schiffhead are trending.
I play Lexulous Scrabble, it’s the bomb.
Its been almost forty years since it was coined. Yes it is a word. Just like Swalwelled is
verb (used with object) to attack (a candidate or public figure) systematically, especially in the media.
There are lots of non words in WFF. I personally don’t play but my wife does.
I think Hagle(d) is an English word too. Hyping fake news to think you are going to make a presidential run for office and a the hyped announcement you don’t run.

You can't just snag a favorite picture from a desktop folder...it has to be hosted someplace on line to be posted here.
Best bet is to save the image to an image hosting service, I used to use Photobucket. In Firefox right click and select "Copy image location", in Safari right click and select "Open image in new tab" and copy the address in the address bar. Other browsers have similar tricks.

You can pre-cue a YouTube video by adding a t parameter to the link. Like so:
