The first shameless linkjacking post of the new year

Metalli-kazoo (via The Fire Wire)

Also found at The Fire Wire (who I am really going to have to steal from keep my eye on more often in 2009), and having nothing to do with kazoos, or Metallica, or even kazoo-lica. It's a New York Times piece on The Buzzwords of 2008 by linguist Grant Barrett, who hosts a language-related public radio show "A Way With Words" along with cohost Martha Barnette. The article is great fun, but maybe even more so for the knockout graphical representations for each of the words.

I was waiting for the angry stare-er to join in, and boy was I not disappointed. Hilarious!!
