Currently I’m experimenting with crowdsourcing to see if I can complete my project sooner by taking advantage of other resources.

Is it possible to crowdsource the content of this website? I think it will be much more efficient.

factoid

  1. a brief trivial item of news or information

  3. supposedly a “fact”, but is not entirely true which can then be used to embellish a story
  4. an invented fact that is believed to be true
Usage

You need to validate that factoid of yours, bro. We need to settle this once and for all.

What is the difference between a fact and a factoid? There seems to be a very thin line between the two.

The BFG’s instruction to Sophie: “Don’t gobblefunk around with words.”

As Roald Dahl fans around the globe gear up for the author’s celebration of life event, which also sees some of his invented words being added to the dictionary, many will expectedly be brushing up on their gobblefunk: that unmistakably “Dahlesque” language full of gloriumptiously jumpsquiffling and wondercrump words.
