Last week I tweeted:

I’m forever googling ridiculous things to prove Victor wrong in our debates. I need a website that just says: “YOU’RE WRONG, VICTOR.”

It would save me so much time. And I could use that time to plant articles on the internet proving my incorrect ideas. Everyone wins.

Within minutes I got these from Doug, Jason, Nancy and Trevor: 


And that is why I love the internet.

PS. Our current argument is whether I should be able to introduce myself to strangers at dinner parties as a “real-life were-woman” since technically a “were-wolf” means you’re now a wolf but you were a person, and so (using logic) “were-woman” would imply that I am a woman and also that I was a woman.  Victor disagreed and so I pulled up the Is-Victor-Wrong websites to use as scientific proof, but Victor said that there’s nothing scientifically valid about any of those websites.

I briefly considered that he might have a point, but then looked it up on the internet and turns out that Victor is wrong.

Who knew?

  14. Sorry to burst your bubble a bit Jenny, but the “were” on werewolf actually means “man” so you are trying to call yourself man-woman.

  22. Victor is just one y away from a victory. And that’s gotta hurt. So close. On his knees in the rain in the prison yard, Victor bellows. The other inmates hear “WHY?” but really, Victor is begging the universe to just give him that “Y.” That one letter that’s all the difference.

  23. Gotta side with Victor on this one – the ‘were’ in werewolf has nothing to do with the verb ‘to be;’ it comes from the Anglo-Saxon ‘wer’, which means man. So it’s literally a man-wolf, a being that is both man and wolf.
    HOWEVER, this is clearly sexist because women can be werewolves, too, and therefore maybe it’s time to re-evaluate the word and come up with a new etymology. I’ll probably accept yours because I don’t know the Anglo-Saxon word for woman.

  27. We are the greatest fans there ever were.

  28. Before we were married I made my now-husband memorize three short phrases: 1. I was wrong. 2. I’m sorry. and 3. I’ll never do it again. It’s kept us going for nearly seventeen years. Now I need to find some Davidiswrong websites to bolster my argument.

  29. Were-Woman? There, there woman.
    Alright, suit yourself.

  30. The prefix ‘wer’ actually means ‘man’ (in the sense of human,regardless of gender), so a werewolf is literally a human-wolf. A wer-woman would be a human-woman. I hope this is useful to you.

  31. I never remember it correctly.

  32. JennyWren [and The Bloggess, if she cares]: the Anglo-Saxon for “woman” is [wait for it]: wif, wifmann. Could it BE any more sexist?! [/Chandler channeling]

  33. The prefix ‘wer’ means ‘man’ (in the sense of human, regardless of gender), so a werewolf is a human-wolf. A wer-woman would literally be a human-woman. I hope this is useful.

  34. Good to know! Yep, that’s pretty sexist. Although I guess I would not have expected a high level of gender parity from the Anglo-Saxons

  52. Don’t forget the Tumblr!

  53. JennyWren has a valid point regarding were/wer in Anglo-Saxon. Now, interestingly fréowíf is the noun for free woman (as opposed to slave or indentured) and is sounds rather like free-wolf so I think you should use that!

    Also, Victor is wrong.

  54. 56
    Rachel CrazyMum

    I just found the Old English Translator (shouldn’t that be ‘Ye Olde English Translator’?) and JennyWren and others are correct that ‘Wer’ means “man’. so I entered “woman” into the search.
    Options are as follows:

    cwén Strong Feminine Noun
    Meaning: woman wife consort queen empress royal princess virgin mary

    fréo Strong Feminine Noun
    Meaning: woman lady

    Or my personal fave:
    sigewíf Strong Neuter Noun
    Meaning: victorious woman grimm supposes this word may be a GENERAL DENOMINATION OF WISE WOMEN

    So, Jenny, you could be a Cwén-Jenny, Fréo-Jenny or Sigewif-Jenny.
    Which do you prefer?

  55. If he’s always wrong, it’s deeply ironic that his name is Victor.

    Janet Coburn recently posted Light Crumbs and Muffin Bones.

    So, what is Ye Olde English pronounciation of Sigewif?? Siggy-wiff? Siggy-wife? Sigh-wiff? Maybe it’s not pronounced as it looks and it’s JENNY-wolf??

  67. In one Peanuts cartoon Lucy said, “I thought I was wrong once but I was mistaken.” My fav quote ever and I use it a lot.

  72. If a man says something in the forest, and no woman hears him, is he still wrong?

  73. I…what else would were-woman mean? Somebody who turns into a woman in the dark of the moon? Or just for shark week perhaps?

  74. JennyWren, frogman et al: The trick with Old Saxon is that ‘man’ meant ‘person’, ‘were’ meant ‘male person’, and ‘wif’ meant ‘female person’ (also ‘clothweaver’, apparently). The sources are pretty sketchy but it seems like Anglo-Saxon women might have had it pretty good for the time, at least until the Normans invaded and were appalled at all these women owning property and making decisions. (Also thank the Normans for fucking up our pronouns.)

    (So if I got infected by a werewolf I’d become a wifwolf? That’s horrific. And also sort of fun to say. ~ Jenny)

  75. Sadly, I hadn’t followed your blog for a while, and then today I somehow landed on your Wikipedia page. I knew something was amiss once I read the last sentence (and most recent edit) –

    “In arguments and discussions with her husband, Victor, she is right and he is wrong.[15]”

  76. Hilarious work!!! You’re too funny!! Check out my blog?

  77. I want to use that introduction some time…makes so much sense to me!!!

  80. As the wife of a presumably completely different Victor, I hope you won’t mind if I make use of these myself. He, too, is often wrong, for example in insisting that Curious George’s friend wears a yellow sombrero. Just no. It is a yellow hat.

  81. Hahaha. I once had an argument with my husband about whether a pterodactyl is a dinosaur or not. I said it wasn’t. All hell broke loose. Google told us it’s a pterosaur. So I totally understand your need for a website.

    (Comments are only monitored if you’re new or do something to trigger the automated moderation system so this was approved as soon as you submitted it. I’m so sorry this upset you and that you’re suffering from the aftermath of violence. Please rest assured that Victor is not controlling me. In fact, the very idea that he’s supportive of me writing silly things about websites made to prove me right even when I’m wrong is a fairly good indication that he’s really pretty easy-going compared to most people. That said, if it bothers you I understand completely if you need to not read here because self-care is way more important than humor blogs. Take care and come back when you feel ready. ~ Jenny)

    1. When in doubt, Victor is right.
