Facebook Lexicon: Knitting Beats Crochet Once Again!

Friday, June 13th, 2008

Facebook Lexicon

Facebook Lexicon is a lot like Google Trends in that it allows you to compare the use of two different words and consistently prove that Knitting is better than Crochet :D

See any orange? I sure don’t. More mentions must mean it’s better. (That’s sarcasm.) Take that, crochet!

Side Note: I’m very disappointed in the tone that this discussion has taken. There are some people who are making sober arguments in defense of crochet, but also some that are attacking me for this post. I’m deleting comments that are personal and unwarranted attacks on my intelligence and leaving up the ones that were in good spirit. If you have read my blog for a while, you would know that I crochet (not very well, but I’m trying) and that I have nothing against it. This joke was tongue in cheek, and I meant no offense by it. If my sarcasm wasn’t obvious enough, I apologize. I will attempt to be make my sarcasm clearer in the future. So please, if you can’t say nuthin’ nice or at least reasonable about this post, don’t say nuthin’ at all. And PLEASE, have a sense of humour when you go on the internet. Don’t assume you know everything about someone just by reading a single post on their blog. If I get another immature comment I will be shutting down the comments on this post, so please be considerate.

  1. I don’t quite see the point in this…because people use the word more, then it’s a better hobby? And why choose to designate one as “better” than the other. Seems just silly to me.

  2. If you meant your post as a joke, perhaps you should have said so in the beginning. There is no way to emphasize “tongue in cheek” in text unless the poster herself does it. And I get a lot of first time readers to my blog…..they dont have to KNOW me to comment on something I have said. And if I say something that sounds a bit on the anti-crochet side, UNLESS I explained it was a joke, I would expect to be called on it. So your joke didnt go over very well. I am sure you will do better next time :)

  3. I expected to be called on it. What I didn’t expect was that people would treat me with malice and call me stupid. As I said above, there is constructive criticism (which is fine) and there is aggressive and malevolent behaviour, which I will not abide.
