First off, I’d like to thank everyone for their contributions to yesterday’s discussion. Here in Boston, we love to talk about driving in the city, and we take great joy in using the word “douche”.
I’m proud to say that between the post and comments, we managed to use the word “douche” 67 times at the time of writing this. While I’m particularly happy about my own contributions to the English language–”douche lane” and “douchecraft”–there were many more uses of the word that entered my lexicon for the first time. (Thanks to Margaret Ann for teaching me the word “neologism“.) Here were a few of my favorites:
“Douchebaggery” is not one of my favorites, but it should get honorable mention here as it is thrown around a lot in the Dig and in many Boston-area blogs. It seemed to have crashed into Boston’s blogosphere a few years back, and the word appears to have some legs.
I look forward to sharing more of my rants (with you douchebags) soon.
