To be honest, I don’t even remember writing about a donkey party.

So apparently there’s this thing called Wordle where you can type in your blog url and they give you an artistic rendering of what your blog’s all about.  Mine is awesome unsurprising insulting a cry for help.

PS.  I think it’s weird that “fisting” didn’t make it on the list.

PPS. Wait.  I just read that they automatically exclude any super common words, like “the” and “of”.  Fisting is totally the new ampersand. 

PPPS.  Until the spellcheck just caught this I honestly thought that word was spelled and pronounced “ANDpersand”.  And I use it all the time to sound all sophisticated.   Like, all the fucking time.



PPPPS.  Oh fuck.  I just found “fisting” hiding in the corner.  This entire post was a waste of time and I feel like I owe you all a dollar.  Come back next week and I’ll have exciting news about how I’ve been using the word “nonplussed” incorrectly for the last 8 years.

  5. My favorite word cluster up there…HIGH NEVER JESUS METH EVEN GOOD KIDS. I think that is totally some kind of cryptic message. I’ll get back to you once I figure it out.

  7. Well at least Jesus is on there to balance out the f bombs.

  8. Just wasted five minutes looking for fisted in that mess. Five minutes. And I still haven’t found it. The sad thing is that I’m fighting the urge to go look again. GAH.

  12. As in all things, too much “like” and not enough “donkey”.

    slag’s last blog post..Dear President Obama,

  13. Seems like most other things, ‘fisting’ is always hardest to find whenever yer actually *looking* fer it.

    […err, not that I’d know *anything* aboot that (of course, of course…)]

    (…and don’t feel too bad aboot that whole “andpersand” biznez: I’ve been told I’ve pronounsticated “aluminum” with *6* syllables fer *years*…)

    fidget’s last blog post..Whoa Daddy!

  16. If that Wordle is a cry for help, consider this my answer: Your blog’s Wordle and the Wordle of my twenties indicate we are soulmates.

    Jen’s last blog post..BLOGWORLD: WHAT WOULD YOU DO??

  17. I immediately started looking and totally found Fisting, so now I feel like I have accomplished something today, and I’m going back to lying on the couch and watching cooking competitions. Hey, I EARNED IT.

  25. Yeah … I totally went and wordled. There’s no fisting on my wordle, it’s all about food. BORING!!!

    SweetPeaSurry’s last blog post..Among the Narcissi

  26. I’m so ashamed because your wordle is so much more kickass than mine, and I’m a fucking derby girl, for fuck’s sake!!!


    Julia’s last blog post..My Husband is Strange

  28. I ran my latest short story through this thing. Looks pretty good! I might even prefer this version.

  29. You want pathetic? I don’t even know what ampersand means.

  30. Why isn’t vagina in big letters somewhere? Wordle – what’s up with that, homes?

    deidre’s last blog post..For the first time today, I’m not on the verge of tears. Celebrate!

  31. You only owe me 50¢, I just skimmed it.

    Whit’s last blog post..Quick on the UpTake and Why I Can’t Wear Business Socks

  32. “Ampersand” is a fucked up word. Don’t feel bad about it. “Nonplussed” isn’t much better.

    Fisting you do owe me a dollar.

    Diane Whiddon-Brown’s last blog post..Writing Every Day

  33. File this under information that you probably don’t care about:

    Ampersand was originally the last letter of the alphabet, except back THEN, it was “and, per se, and.” But when kids were saying it quickly they would just mumble it all together and it eventually became “ampersand.” So really, your misspelling and mispronunciation is almost more accurate than the real spelling. If anyone tries to give you crap, just tell them that you’re trying to be true to the roots of the word.

    And as long as i’m being geeky, i think that you should totally try Wordle again in a week, because it looks mostly at the most recent couple of posts, so it’s heavily influenced by Nancy’s letters. You need a more true-to-the-bloggess-alone Wordle for your very own.

  34. I love how ‘Need Fucking’ is front and center. Subliminal? Perhaps. Or I waas able to zig-zag the sentence ‘motherfucking like fucking jesus’. You naughty girl you!

    So Not Mom-a-licious’s last blog post..Be expecting something…

  35. Bah, it doesn’t scan the whole site, it just grabs the latest from the RSS feed. I tried it with my blog and it’s all “creature” this and “flying” that.

    Steve’s last blog post..Darth-Vadolia

  36. I’m pretty sure that no matter what you’re talking about (unless it’s “Eyes Wide Shut”), fisting always has to hide in the corner, whether you’re using “Blog Butter” or not.

    And I’m pretty sure all this fisting talk is why “Middle Babies Also Go Hell”.

    P.S. “Need Fucking? Oh, Take Everyone” because “Talking Pootananny Actually Got Done.”

    LiteralDan’s last blog post..A conversation with D-: The story of sugar

  37. You could probably market your own magnetic refrigerator poetry based on your Wordle. I would buy it. Hell, I would buy it just for the little piece that says Pootananny.

    Silvergirl’s last blog post..Won’t You Beat My Neighbors?

  38. Lady, you are so funny. When I did my wordle, I had ‘Houston’ prominently featured, because I’d just written about being confused about the whole “Houston, we have a problem” phrase – thinking it meant “headquarters” and not, you know, *Houston.*

    Lady M’s last blog post..Is It Wrong to Celebrate Getting Back Into Pre-Pregnancy Jeans By Getting Cupcakes?

  39. Look for Drugs. Right after that comes a little head. Fisting is right after that.

    Well that just sounds like the recipe for an entertaining evening—and that’s just the foreplay!

    I should probably write a program that bars me from posting this long after my bedtime…

  40. I feel good that “Meth” is just a teensy bit bigger than “Jesus.”

    Actually, I don’t think “good” is the right word, maybe “nonplussed” is a better choice.

    What do you think?

    califmom’s last blog post..Olives Under Your Pillow? Blame Your Brother

  41. If you were looking for fisting, I could have told you where to start looking, if you know what I mean.

    Besides I call B.S. on this thing. After all, where is “giant squid” in all of this?

  42. I love how “kitten” and “mittens” is hidden there on the bottom, so sweet. But, where it hell is chickens?

    Don’t feel too badly: I used to think the word was “voluMptuous” and thought I was so smart when I used that big word. I still think the “m” should be in there so when I say it now, I have to tell everyone I know the right way to say it but that I think the word needs and “m” b/c it is a nice visual reminder of what the word means. No one agrees.

    Fairly Odd Mother’s last blog post..Need to laugh about something?

  43. Fisting is for lovers. Like Virginia.

  44. I dig that you owe me a dollar. Then I can be all “Hey. Can I borrow a dollar?” and you’ll be all “Here. I owed it to you, anyway(s).” and that will be the greatest day in the world.

    Also, the only people who use “ampersand” correctly are andmateurs. You’re All-Pro.

    Kurt’s last blog post..This Is Pretty Much The Dumbest Thing I’ve Ever Written

  45. Wow! A cryptograph. Okay, it’s gonna take me a few to solve this one…

  46. Thank goodness “butter” is on there too.

  47. It’s too bad that you couldn’t use something like this as a book cover. You know, because of “censors” and “the man”.


    I *dare* you to use something like this as your book cover.

  48. Awesome Wordle is…as Yoda would say.

    WTF? I don’t even like Star Wars.

  49. As soon as you mentioned it I started searching for “fisting” in your Wordle. I really shouldn’t be interested in fisting at all.

  50. Pretty accurate.

    Kyla’s last blog post..Pssst…

  51. This is pure awesomeness.

  53. Speaking of fisting, my husband and I were watching Underworld 3 the other night, and we totally fisted right there in the middle of the theatre. And then we thought of you. Just thought you should know.

  54. This is the Bloggess’ mind… on drugs.


    Ed T.’s last blog post..A pretty picture, and a lesson in how camera lenses work

  55. Of course, this means I am gonna *have* to try this myself.


    Ed T.’s last blog post..Group shot

  56. Oh for Christ’s sake. My largest word — and I mean it’s fucking HUGE compared to every other word there — is “like.” Second largest is “really.” I guess this means that my blog is super-rich with relevant content.

    Johnny Truant’s last blog post..Unfortunately, pants

  57. At first glance I totally read: Shit, Nancy think just now get fuck. So, i think it’s pretty cool. You don’t have to send me a dollar.

    MommyNamedApril’s last blog post..He’s Cute. But a Little Weird Too.

  58. 58
    Just A. Reader

    Wait, what’s your blog all about? I never knew it was about something. Have I been missing the point all this time?

  59. So I totally didn’t notice that your biggest word is LIKE too. Shit, I’m really observant. Here I thought I was being all original.

    Johnny Truant’s last blog post..Unfortunately, pants

  60. I think it’s good that “Jesus” and “Christ” are listed on there in such close proximity to “Drugs” and “Fucking.” I remember a lot of what I learned in Catholic school from Sister-Mary-Frozen-Holy-Water had to do with tying those aspects of life together. Or maybe that was in rehab….

    Maddie’s last blog post..Oh, the things you can get from eBay…..

  61. Great find! I’ll be using that site for brainstorming ideas for articles.

    C.B.Jones’s last blog post..Lakers Forefiet season, Bobcats no longer cursed

  62. That’s just scary. I think I will pass on giving this a try myself.

    annie’s last blog post..And the Blog Award Goes to…

  63. XD You can fist me any day, Jenny. I hope by fisting you mean fist-bumping- and I’m not completely oblivious to the actual connotations of the sentence I’m saying, but, OH WELL. These things are to be expected.

  64. I did this and LOVE mine, but I can’t figure out how to get it on my blog. HELP please!?!??!

    I love how FUCK is right out there for all to see LOL

    Lea’s last blog post..I forgot to mention..

  65. i would be more worried if i actually remembered the donkey party!

  66. “Basically homeless feel mean.”

    That’s the greatest word cluster, I think.

    Erik’s last blog post..So I was bored.

  67. “Nancy, Shit, just fuck like fuckin Jesus!” It sounds like someone exasperated at Nancy. I love it.

    Farrah’s last blog post..Welcome to my blog!

  68. Can we discuss the fact that the word “fuck” appears in four different forms? Seriously, there is no better curse word.

    Stephanie’s last blog post..And I’d thought the worst things the Hiltons had done was giving birth to Paris…

  69. I so want to do this!!!

    Debbi’s last blog post..Six Word Saturday

    Rhea’s last blog post..A Unique Frog

  71. OMFG, I have never heard of this Wordle?! Hey, where the hell is
    your VAGINA on this Wordle thingy? We need to see it….or am I just missing it, damnit?!

  72. Middle Babies Also Fuck, Apparently. XDD

  73. “Think Pootananny”

    I’m having the bumper sticker made up now.

  74. I’m sure there’s an easier way to do it but I just did a screen print (cntrl/alt/printscreen), pasted it into image broadway and saved it as a jpeg. I’m sure I did it the most complicated way possible.

  75. Bad Spatula tried meth Goddamned sure gets baby.

    Who knew?

    Mr Farty’s last blog post..Computer Terms Illustrated #21

  76. I like the Think Pootananny, Talk Pootananny, Get Pootananny, Going Pootananny cluster. Ya, gotta admit, anything pootananny tops fisting any day.

    Dingo’s last blog post..I Should’ve Used A Car Wash

  77. I love how “kitten mittens” are right there together in the same color. This is great – it’s totally the Where’s Waldo of the best of The Bloggess – which completely suits my ADD brain.

    Gretchen’s last blog post..Some Guys Have All The Luck

  78. Plus – all of that stuff sounds like an email from Nancy.

    Jenn’s last blog post..The Lost Weekend

  85. I put the whole mess into my Freudian BlendaMatic (with optional Cathartic Puree Function)and it made some very strange and disturbing noises for about half an hour.

    Then it printed: “Convent bound.”

    I was, and remain, dumfounded.

  86. Just fuck trucker, motherfucker.

  87. OMG this is the most annoying “Where’s Waldo” game ever. I just spent way too much time looking for “zombies” and “squid.”

    Really, this is more Kappes than it is you.

    mrtl’s last blog post..Bringin’ ‘Em Up Right

    Lea’s last blog post..Wordle

  92. This WOULD be an awesome poster.

    Kylie’s last blog post..Tales of the Religion Class

  93. Apparently I need to write about something more interesting, or swear more or something because the biggest word on mine was CHEESE and somehow I don’t think one post about cheese really calls for that being the focal point of my freaking blog. But what do I know?

    Erin’s last blog post..Painting is Fun

    Nancy’s last blog post..Book lust, fairy dust (or is it fairy lust?)

    Dani’s last blog post..Everyone knows cube-shaped containers are for non-organic materials…

  97. That’s this blog: Totally Like Fucking. (but more satisfying)

  99. Jesus, fucking, meth, pootananny and spatula. You just can’t mess with that.

    Anna Russell’s last blog post..Your Vote Counts!

  100. Every single time I look at this I see the first word I see is pootananny.

    AmyAnne’s last blog post..Thanks Anyways

  101. Who knew profanity could be so pretty!

  102. The fact that Kappes Paralegal are bold letters in the middle makes me believe that it’s ok that I’m commenting 4 days late on the Nancy W. Kappes post. I felt as though I needed some time to digest all the information that you gave us….needed some time to sleep on it. I think I’ve come up with a solution to some of your problems. I can’t help you with the current Meth problem you seem to have – but I do feel that if you hire Nancy as your Ad Manager – she would do a fine job of scary the absolute fuckin’ shit out of everyone…and I’m sure that Chipotle will sign on to run ads on your site in no time.

    kerrie’s last blog post..It Means Special

  103. Nonplussed is a dumb-ass word.
    Have to go Wordle my blog. One main theme is, dumb-ass stuff I do because I’m a time-crazed mom with a day job. Like, walk into my boss’s office with spaghetti on my shirt.

    Ellen’s last blog post..Monday Morning Confessional: So, this woman walks into her boss’s office with spaghetti on her shirt…

  104. […] down to. I can honestly say I’m thrilled that the biggest word here is L-O-V-E. My thanks to The Bloggess for the heads up (hers is completely ridiculous and […]

  105. That’s pure art. Surely worthy of framing and giving to your parents for Christmas

    WM’s last blog post..Things that should never be Tweeted

  106. I keep totally seeing “Make Kappspara legal” I want some of this Kappspara; sounds like it has a kick.

  107. You need to circle fisting because I can’t find it. And I literally looked for like 10 minutes. Proving I am way bigger asshole than you.

    Aimee Greeblemonkey’s last blog post..God Talk With A 6 Year Old

  108. Love the wordle things. Mine is much more boring – neither ‘fucking’ nor ‘fisting’ – but I have a big fat ‘neanderthal’.

    A Free Man’s last blog post..I’ve always kept a unicorn and I sometimes sing in tune

  109. I like how Victor is surrounded by words like Used, Ass and Hell. It’s like they know you already 🙂

  110. For the first day in a week I didn’t think about fisting, and then I found my way back to you.

    clickmom’s last blog post..It’s my 4 year bog-iversary!

  111. It’s amazing how pretty this looks, despite all the fuck and fucking and so on. In fact, I’d make a poster of it. Or a bumper sticker. Or an ad of some sort. And if you like any of these ideas feel free to use them, no need to offer fisting as payment(ugh).

    Elisa’s last blog post..Oversharing and overbitching

  112. Thank you for sharing this – I love it and will have to post about it, as well. Except, I’m really disappointed that fuck or fucking isn’t as big on mine. Wait…it’s not even there! Boo.

  113. How funny! I love wordle I am going to re wordle my blog now and see what I come up with.

    Jenna @ Newlyweds’s last blog post..Goodbye Sable

  114. mine came blank. I thought, damn, wadda looooser.

    then I read “firewall” causes issues.

    I guess that means I should be working not reading Jenny’s blog. sux to have to work

    reeky’s last blog post..Giving It Away For Free

  115. I have to revise my opinion. It just occurred to me that there is not one single Sasquatch or Ninja mention. Or maybe the Ninja is there…I just can’t SEE it. Hmmmmm…but still…no midget…no dwarf…no giant squid. They really don’t know you at all, do they? You can’t just skim The Bloggess. It’s like skimming the Bible. You really just don’t get it.

  116. […] to the Bloggess for infecting my brain with her kind of […]

  117. Mine was so sad that the largest words were Blog and Post.

    I hate Wordle now, just because I need something to blame.

    Diana’s last blog post..Kindle 2 and The Simple Dollar

  118. Mine sucks! It took all the worst words like “racist,” “redneck,” “country,” and “white.” What the hell!

    Dawn’s last blog post..Winter in Louisiana is over (I hope)

  119. I don’t even wanna know what my Wordle looks like.

    Who the hell am I kidding. Yes I do!

    Auds at Barking Mad’s last blog post..Some Days I Wish My Brain Had an Off Switch

  120. […] To be honest, I don’t even remember writing about a donkey party. at The Bloggess […]

  121. So I just wordle-d my own blog. Consider me slitting my blogging wrists now. Either I a).talk like a fucking idiot(which is extremely possible) b).have the worst blog ever or c). wordle exists just to fuck with peoples heads and make them feel super insecure about the words that would define their blogs.

    Seriously gasoline/gas pops up at least twice on there. REALLY?

  122. Apparently I say “now” more than I say my son’s name on my blog. Which is primarily about my son.
