BEHOLD! The Ambivalent Weimaraner!
Weimaraner was the overwhelming winner this week, but ambivalent held its own.
Online, ambivalence is depicted with the usual “Am I ambivalent? Yes and no” buttons, billboards, and posters. Clever the first time, predictable thereafter. There is evidently a German singer called Ambivalent who looks fully male to me. This stock photo is meant to explain ambivalence:
(I think she’s German as well.)
Having met the great Weimaraner photographer William Wegman not too long ago, I feel ambivalent about using one of his images without permission. But hey, they’re fab so why not?
You realize of course that the weimaraner gets its name from the Weimar republic in Germany. I got my name from Germany too.
Now onto the other thing:
Being the disciplined [from the German side] contest provider (as opposed to content provider) that I mean to be, as I was trolling both Facebook pages to count the entries, I found that all mentions of this week’s Word of the Week had evaporated!!! It took a number of attempts to forage in the history of mentions to find them. WHAT THE HELL, ZUCKERBERG?
Has this happened to you? Oh Facebook, sometimes I just want to quit you.
Let me know if you want more Word Of the Weeks. The numbers of participants is growing, but the technical part is wearying. Post here or on FB.
