Here at the hot pink palace of Bitchery, fuckwittery does not ever go unrewarded. With the jaw-dropping hubris of Cook’s Source editor Judith Griggs’ assertions that Godecookery author Monica should feel pleased that Cook’s Source plagiarized her and should think about compensating them for editing her original article, it’s time for some hot steaming Google bombing.
I propose the following redefinition of Judith Griggs’ name:
Inflected Form(s): griggs’d
Pronunciation: gr i gz
1. To use content on the web without permission, then request payment from original author for rewrites and editing.
2. To remain ignorant of plagiarism, ethics, copyright, and asshat behavior.
Etymology: From Cook’s Source editor Judith Griggs’ use of Monica’s article from GodeCookery without attribution or permission, and from Griggs’ subsequent rejection and ridicule of Monica’s request for compensation.
Example of usage: “Why’d you get an F on that essay?”
“I griggs’d the professor’s doctoral thesis from her website, and I even cleaned it up for her and told her she should give me an A, but she failed me anyway.”
Alternate usage: “For tomorrow’s deadline, I’m going to griggs some article from LiveJournal but edit it to remove the humor and interestingness.”
Now, to Google Bomb, you follow these very simple steps to help popularize the new definition.
First, I created this page for the definition “griggs”. LINK TO THIS URL:
http://www.smartbitchestrashybooks.com/judithgriggs with “Judith Griggs” as the anchor text. The link should look like this:
This is friendly and effective Google-bombing. The more people that create a link to that page, the higher up in the search results the new definition will appear. See: Bill Napoli.
Any questions, please send them over or list them in the comments.
And if you decide to use and republish this article for profit, please know that I will come down on your ass like a cloud of raging grackle birds. The internet may be for porn and pictures of cats, but it is not public domain. Plagiarism sucks.
