Henry Blodget Gets Enshrined In The Urban Dictionary

Posted: Updated:

The Village Voice's Foster Kamer points out today that some of the apparent collateral damage from the recent Henry Blodget-on-Felix Salmon Twitter Folderol Of 2010 is that Blodget has ended up in the cruel and mocking embrace of the Urban Dictionary:

to Blodgetize (v): to proclaim something as fact even though the information stated originates from deep inside one's ass. Most appropriate when making predictions of a company's stock price, earning estimates, or other financial related facts. Henry Blodget, the disgraced internet analyst, is known to have perfected the technique of passing off complete bullshit stock estimates as fact in the late 1990s and early 2000s.

I think this goes to show that on a long enough timeline, every single one of us eventually becomes part of some sex joke, on the Internet.
