An unpleasant-sounding shortened version of the term "weB LOG", or journal kept online.

Blog's found on the net,
it's easy to get,
and read by every swab;
More precious than booty
and not high-faluty,
it's blog, blog, blog!

It's blog, blog
It's made out of pixels, not wood!
It's blog, blog,
It's better than bad, it's good!

Meaning no disrespect Gaea, but the term "blog" has turned my stomach since it entered the general parlance back in the 90's, and no amount of repeating it now is likely to do what ten years or more of hearing that term hasn't.

It's awkward, it's clunky, it sounds like a combination of "blight" and "slog" or even worse. I can't stand it.

(Maybe it's because I was never a Ren and Stimpy fan? I much preferred "Two Stupid Dogs". Much less gross-out graphics.)

At any rate, I have nothing against the "b" things themselves. Just... the name.

Not to worry. What's in a name, after all? I dislike certain words myself - rhododendron, for one.

I knew a woman named Rhododendron once. I was sympethetic except that she named her daugher Clover, which while shorter, isn't much better.

Clover is better than "Geranium".

Well, just because you like flowers doesn't mean you have to like what your newb subjects* named them.

I'd totally forgotten about this one till I hit random after looking at today's. I want to see a youtube video of this commercial though.

I thought "blog" was just a portmanteau form of "blue grog", the popular pirate drink served ever year on St. Columba's Day?
