Lingo Log

Language Log calls the above "an ursine crash blossom." I read the crash blossom description, and I submit that most of the instances I’ve seen since the coining of this ursine term have been way worse than the original. The original should have been understood in context [ that’s what the editor was thinking -Ed.]. That said, they’d have a field day with our archives.

It’s a fun place to spend some time.
