Fun with Words and Sociology

Posted in Uncategorized at 9:44 am by rosecarnival

Introducing a new blog feature, in which every week I will take 2 titles or events from history or literature and change them into new verbs or other grammer phrases.

1. Bolshevik- to bolsheviked/bolsheviking- verb- means to succeed in overthrowing a tradition or a long-standing rule.

ex. Can you believe she bolsheviked her mom into letting her get her nose pierced?

Pertaining to the October 1917 Russian Revolution, where Vladimer Ilyich Lenin and the Bolsheviks succeeded in overthrowing the czarist regime and establishing a communist one.

2. Bergeron- to bergeroned- verb- meaning to bring someone down to the average or basic level.

ex. This school just bergeroned me!

Petaining to the short story Harrison Bergeron by Kurt Vonnegut, in which the future has become “completely equal” as in no one can be better then anyone else, and the government will take measures into stopping others from using their abilities.

Also, my new social theory-

In most social relationships, we do not “tire” or “leave” people, they are being constantly replaced by others who we deem more suitable. Basically, we change out people in our lives for new ones that we think are better or we like more. Remember the age-old story in which two girls are best friends, until on gets a boyfriend and the other girl no longer seems as important as she did before? Well, it’s exactly like that. We interchange people in our lives for new ones, constantly, and often without realizing it, until we think, “Hey, I haven’t spoken to ______ in a while.”

I don’t know if a social theory like this exists, so if you know, tell me, okay.

P.S: I know this blog is getting views…. so please drop me a comment. There are approx. 42 views for the “Valentine’s Day” post. Leave comments, please!
