JABBERWOCKY

Bebo, Badoo, Yahoo, Capazoo, Woophy, Twitter, Google…

Have you ever thought that there are hundreds of social media terms that sound like something out of Jabberwocky?! That’s exactly what Brendan Cooper thought and he has created an ingenious ‘jabber-mocky’!

He has cleverly kept his version as close to the original rhyming and scansion, and where it isn’t possible he has used some creative poetic license!

`Twas Twitter, and the MySpace Mixx
Did Pownce and Plaxo on the web:
All Woophy were the DotNetKicks,
And the socialogs Friendfed.

“Beware the YahooMash, my son!
The jaws that Joost, the claws that Cloob!
Beware the Qoolsqool bird, and shun
The CouchSurfing DailyHub!”

He took his Xanga sword in hand:
Long time the Blogmeme foe he sought –
So rested he by the Bebo tree,
And stood awhile in thought.

And, as in ThisNext thought he stood,
The YahooMash, with FARK of flame,
Came Xing through the Nettby wood,
And LinkedIn as it came!

BlipooBadoo! And through and through
The Buzzflash blade went ZigaZoga!
He left it dead, and with its head
He went a-googling back.

“And, has thou slain the YahooMash?
Come to my arms, my blogger boy!
Phanfare day! KaiooKazaa!’
He jaiku in his joy.

`Twas Twitter, and the MySpace Mixx
Did Pownce and Plaxo on the web:
All Woophy were the DotNetKicks,
And the socialogs Friendfed.
