wikiduction

I noticed at the Swank Parties all last week you'd be sitting at a table at a bar and someone would walk past and say "Hey guys, let me introduce you to C. Bixby Blatherskythe III" and half the table would go "Wow!" and the other half would slip their hand under the table and type "wiki C. Bixby Blatherskythe III" with one thumb on their iPhones and then go "Wow!"

It's like Wikipedia is the new social register....


Wikiduction (wiki-duc-tion):
noun
Looking someone up on Wikipedia the moment you meet them to see if you ought to know who they are.
