I Never Told You the Answer!

I almost completely forgot! The answer to my little guessing game  last week about my tagline—although I assume the people who would know it knew it right away and the people who didn’t know it but cared to know it googled it (verbed!) and the people who still don’t know probably don’t particularly care to know at all—is Calvin and Hobbes. Here’s the context:

Calvin: I like to verb words.
Hobbes: What?

Calvin: I take nouns and adjectives and use them as verbs. Remember when “access” was a thing? Now it’s something we do. It got verbed.

Calvin (next frame): Verbing weirds language.

Hobbes: Maybe we can eventually make language a complete impediment to understanding.
