Separated at Birth: 02-04-2008


The goofy "Urban Dictionary" feature (the thingee with George Feyer at the whiteboard) that appears on the sidebar here doesn't usually relate to anything in particular – they're just curious bits of faddish argot that I find amusing – but sometimes serenditipity makes itself felt. Such is the case today, where the word posted yesterday afternoon was "Hackdiggery" (def: "Any action executed half-heartedly, incompetently or without necessary precautions leading to unwanted or undesirable results. It is used as an expletive or descriptive term of actions past.") and lo, this morning, we have a perfect instance of "hackdiggery" at the Ministry of Public Works. Ain't life a constant source of wonder?
