In Iain Sinclair's book The Last London, he says of a report on a new
Banksy artwork - "The only way I could hear the word
iconic without grimacing was to immediately subsitute moronic. Then it worked. Then it
made perfect sense."
I thought I'd turn that grouchy thought into a bookmarklet.
Drag the link below to your bookmarks bar, and give it a click whenever you get annoyed by the word iconic being misused on the web. It will replace iconic with moronic, saving you the effort of having to do that in your mind.
Live data from Google News' RSS feed about
iconic moronic things. As always with generating content
from live data, some may be accidentally tasteless. Apologies in advance.
Props to bullshit.js, who also inspired this.
