One for the Word Court

Once again I Googled something completely innocent, and got back “adult” sites: “latex patent.” See, Latex is a typesetting system that I use to write my papers, and I wanted to site a patent as a reference. There must be a word for this occurance, so perhaps I should write to Barbara Wallraff at the Atlantic Monthly’s Word Court.

In other news, apparently Prozac has been found in tap water in England. And in an unconnected finding, more Brits think about tea when waking up than they do sex. Hmm.
