English

OK, I know that English is a living language. It changes as our culture changes. I'm OK with "email" and "fax" and "bungee". Really.

However, Facebook is not a verb. Sorry, kids, it's not, and it never will be.

You don't taco, you eat a taco.

You don't magazine, you read a magazine.

Hell, pick any verb - you can read, check, use, post on, devour, obsess over, avoid, follow, or accept Facebook, but you cannot Facebook Facebook.

Thank you.

Ha. Rob's coworkers now tell him to Cruztime. As in: "just Cruztime me".

Aaack!
