There are now more than 110 websites loaded into my “Black Blogosphere” search engine. (Look to your right.) We’re talking about tens of thousands of posts.
Wanna have some fun with it?
Try to think of a word – a single word in the English language – that does NOT appear in any of the thousands of posts on all those black blogs.
A word like watercress. That one only turns up twice... on Bossip and Crunk & Disorderly.
How about haberdasher? That also turns up twice... including Bossip again.
Hurdy-gurdy? It seems yours truly has been the only one to mention that word in a blog post. (By the way, did you see when Amy Poehler strapped on a hurdy-gurdy in her Dakota Fanning sketch last week?)
Mes Deux Cents is the only one to have mentioned parthenogenesis.
I did stump my search engine with crantini (a cranberry martini), but that’s a bullshit word. So I tried homunculus.
Stumped! More than 110 black bloggers... none who’ve ever used the word “homunculus.” Until today!
Give it a try. And let me know if you stump my search engine.
