I've hereby declared a moratorium on the use of the word "fail."

Now, I'm not prohibiting anyone from saying they've failed a test or failed to take the dog for a walk.

I'm declaring the use of the word "fail" in any title -- movie, song, blog -- obsolete, old-fashioned, uncool and completely last year.

What does this mean?

It means no more agentfail, queryfail, bossfail, employeefail, childfail, Bushfail, Senatefail, dogfail or catfail.

Any use of this word will result in cynical expressions from your friends, rolling of the eyes from the general public and possible ostracism and excommunication from everyone else.

This moratorium goes into effect immediately and will continue until further notice.

Thank you for the interuption. Now, please, continue with your day.

Ditto that, girl. WOW, all this negative "fail" stuff is really going nuts, huh? LOL.

I'll go back into my quiet little happy place until it all blows over.

LOL! This shows how bad my eyes are getting. I'm not a user of Twitter (and I refuse to even promote the other form of the verb), but I thought all these things were called: ___FALL.

You mean the whole time it has been FAIL?

I just joined the dorksati.

I fail to see the relevance here. . .

JK JK JK lol. . .I know a cynical expression and rolling of the eyes will come in the near future and, of course, thoughts of you and your beautiful humor!

You all crack me up!

Rosslyn, I'm literally out of my chair and on the floor laughing. And I'm so glad you're now a member of the dorksati.

It's open enrollment. Anyone else who would like to join is welcome.
