With apologies to Bill Watterson.


So, I’m reading Slashdot and come across this gem of a headline: PayPal Announces Intent to IPO. Um, did something change, or is an IPO now considered a verb? A company can issue or hold an IPO, or it can go public. You cannot IPO, just as you cannot do any of the other things that corporate America turns into verbs. Grrr!
