A page from Tsuwm...

Tsuwm's wonderful Worthless Word for the Day site had a interesting word the other day: mountweazel. Have you heard it? It is a bogus entry into a reference, for the purpose of being a copyright trap. Isn't that a great word? I can't say that I've ever found one, though. It is similar to what I've heard some college students do with papers: they insert red font with a profane word, or whatever, to see if the professor actually read the paper. I'd have been worried that the professor would read it...and then give me an F! [I never have been much of a risk-taker.]

BTW, thanks to those of you who commented on my Blog when I was feeling down about getting no comments. It's always good to read a comment or two!
