Looks like somebody made it their news years resolution to patrol and correct my blog.  I am beyond flattered (plus it makes for easy posting, thanks!):

Your comment on the word “Sock Puppet” being new:
Sock puppet: “a puppet made with a sock.” Interesting. Maybe this could have been inducted back in the 1950’s. I’m pretty sure everyone knows what a sock puppet is these days. Perhaps “Wii” would have been a more apt entry, but I presume Merriam will get that in sometime around 2032.”

Wrong.
Read the second part of the def.

Main Entry: sock puppet
Function: noun
Date: 1959
1 : a hand puppet made with a sock
2 : a false online identity used for deceptive purposes

Obviously that IS a new defintion for the word.”

Fine.  All I’m saying is throw up a new date by the new definition; it’s misleading as is (and yes I know “online” did not exist in 1959 but it still needs clarification in case the aliens don’t understand or know the backstory).  I would also like to point out that this person’s email address indicates that they are Canadian.  Just sayin.
