I have a love/hate relationship with Facebook, which leans more toward hate. The controls are unintuitive, the settings change all the time, and it's full of social stupidity made worse by the fact that all your relatives and people who teased you in high school are there. In my frustrations, I've taken to calling it "Facebutt." Some of my friends started calling it Facebutt, too. At first, I was amused. "They think I'm funny! Awesome!" Then, I started having doubts. What if their friends started saying it? And their friends? How will I feel when the word is just out there in the wild, and I hear it spoken by a total stranger? Horrors!

I found myself becoming possessive of the word. I imagine a lot of writers have this problem, becoming attached to words they coin. Then again, maybe not. I've always been strange that way. Is it ridiculous? Absolutely! I still want to plant my flag on the word, anyway. Facebutt is mine.

I also totally came up with "dooter."

It's a new month, and that means a new vote incentive! Get KT into the top 100 of Top Web Comics for a day, and there will be a bonus comic Monday, May 31. I already have an idea, and it's a doozy! Also, be sure to check this week's auctions. Lots of good stuff ending today, and more going up!

I totally know how you guys feel. I'd be possessive of words like that too. Then when you say, I made that up! no one ever believes you.

As an aside, I used to call those "beepbeeps" or "chirpy" depending on which one I was using. So no worries, Minty, I won't steal your name.

That's exactly it! I'd say I came up with it, and no one would believe me. So I'm using the Interwebs as my billboard. XD

You can call it a dooter! :D

My most recent word for it is "p'duh", pronouncing the letters PDA. Everyone seems to find that one even more amusing.
May. 5th, 2010 05:39 am (UTC)
Oh, see... that's a little dooter! The regular dooters are those kiosks where you can scan an item yourself.
May. 5th, 2010 05:41 am (UTC)
Ohhh, those! I just cal those "scanny" or sometimes "scannyscanny" or Scanny-san. X3

See, I have to find ways to amuse myself at work. >>

I call it "Facebork" because it never works properly.
May. 5th, 2010 02:13 pm (UTC)
LOL! Good one!
May. 5th, 2010 01:05 pm (UTC)
At least Minty didn't pull a Paris Hilton.

I know how she feels though, I totally came up with "Don Kings" for these general purpose brushes (for Binning, rough outside work) we use to paint houses.

Hahaa! Sometimes a word or phrase is too good, and you just have to set it free. I feel the same way when someone uses "Princess Rinse 'n' Spit" like it's the actual name of that fakie.

I've officially credited you for "Facebutt" in my userpic notes, though! ;D
May. 5th, 2010 05:57 pm (UTC)
I'm releasing the word into the world! It's the first step in my quest for linguistic domination. XD

I feel the same way when someone uses "Princess Rinse 'n' Spit" like it's the actual name of that fakie.

LOL! I see it so often at The Arena, too. I think of you every time I see it. ^_^

Gawd, I love that icon so much!
May. 5th, 2010 07:26 pm (UTC)
Hahaa! It amuses me that the name still comes up.

Someone should design actual Facebutt underwear based on this icon.
May. 5th, 2010 09:50 pm (UTC)
If you designed some for CafePress, how long do you think we'd have before they were taken down? *tents fingers*
May. 5th, 2010 09:55 pm (UTC)
Sadly, Cafepoop doesn't have any blue undies. I already checked. XD
May. 5th, 2010 10:29 pm (UTC)
Maybe tighty whities with the design on one cheek? :D
May. 6th, 2010 03:56 am (UTC)
I wish you'd revive the fakie tour. With such a renewed interest (and a spin-off forum) in fakies, it would be well-received. <3
May. 5th, 2010 08:23 pm (UTC)
I've invented a word too. Boop. We use it to refer how much power a battery indicator shows. Like when your Wii remote has only half power left, it has only two battery "boops" left.

My cell phone is fully charged so it shows three battery "boops."

When such a device is nearly dead, we tend to say, "hey, looks like you're low on boop-age."


*puts up a billboard claiming the word "boop"*

May. 5th, 2010 09:48 pm (UTC)
I use boop, but it's a cutesy married couple thing. I press my husband's nose like a button and say, "Boop!"
May. 5th, 2010 09:51 pm (UTC)
I like that usage too. ^^ Cute. Boop just seems like a multi-purpose word. XD
May. 6th, 2010 05:32 am (UTC)
That is the cutest darn icon!
May. 5th, 2010 08:43 pm (UTC)
I used to know a guy who was obsessive about a word he created. It was "sintologist" (what he called scientologists.) And if anyone else on that particular forum used the word, he'd freak out and start saying it was his word and he "owned" it, so no one else could use it. He actually threatened to sue people if they didn't stop using it. I was just thinking, "Um, words don't work that way..."
May. 5th, 2010 09:49 pm (UTC)
OMGLOL! I don't mind at all if someone uses my words. I just kinda wish there were some way to verbalize a trademark. "I'm going to Facebutt (word by Dava)!" XD
May. 6th, 2010 04:03 am (UTC)
Um, hello? Language? Ridiculously powerful evolution fart of the human species? Reason we have culture? Literature? Art? Webcomics? Dudes and dudettes, this must NOT be threatened.

Only that people should be happy when their words fly free. Language evolves.
May. 7th, 2010 06:37 am (UTC)
...you DO realize you're arguing semantics with a small mint-green equinoid techie, right? -X3
May. 6th, 2010 04:53 pm (UTC)
I am completely convinced I came up with -fest. As in Quiz-fest. The adding of fest to words is MY THING....

How do I know this?

When I was a kid, like a really little kid, so little I don't remember doing it, they taught me to breathe through my nose and make grabby motions with my hands at the same time, cuz they thought it was funny.

In turn I taught my littlest sister to do the same, and when she did it we used to call out "Nose-fest" and thus it was named Nose-fest

About 6 months or later I heard something called quiz-fest, and then it seemed everything was something-fest. BUT never untill the invention of Nose-fest had I heard it.... therefore I INVENTED IT!!!


Unlike Minty, I want royalties... since you can totally trademark words.
May. 7th, 2010 06:36 am (UTC)
If you hear someone ask "how are you?", and the response is "it's another day on the planet", that's mine...came up with it as a catch-all complaint about it being the 21st Century and we're STILL ALL STUCK ON EARTH. Where's my asteroid mining job?! -XD
May. 8th, 2010 03:25 am (UTC)
lol i know how she feel. once a school i made a word up (or maybe not the first person to made up the word) but a day after i said that word people started to use it!!. and i said "there using my word! now!"
