The Google. The phenomenoun.

Its funny. Not funny haha, but funny peculiar, that someone would turn a phenomenal website into a new noun.

The other day a client phoned to ask if they were on the Google.

"Yes, you're rated number one if you do a search for yourself." I said quickly typing the name into Google, just to check. I breathed a little sigh of relief as we made some small talk and then we said our goodbyes.

Now correct me if Im wrong, but my client had unexpectedly turned Google into a phenomenoun. How funny I thought. But maybe, how true. Google is like a knowledge tree, and a tree would of course be a noun.

So it is with some humour and some truth that we studio geeks sometimes like to refer to our favourite websites as, the Facebook, the YouTube, and lets not forget, the Google.

Oh, wait, now this is funny. I just found this while looking for the Google typeface.

I just found this gem of George Bush using the same turn of phrase "The Google" in a television interview. Oh yes, he's so on it!
