"If The Britannica Has Taught Me Anything, It's To Be More Careful. I Don't Want To Turn Into An Unseemly Noun Or Verb Or Adjective Someday. I Don't Want To Be Like Charles Boycott, The Landlord In Ireland Who Refused To Lower Rents During A Famine, Leading To The Original Boycott. I Don't Want To Be Like Charles Lynch, Who Headed An Irregular Court That Hung Loyalists During The Revolutionary War. I Can't Have "Jacobs" Be A Verb That Means Staying Home All The Time Or Washing Your Hands Too Frequently."
