I have to admit, however, that I enjoy the fail-blog, even though it's grammatically (and sometimes even politically) incorrect.
Actually, the English language has always been pretty flexible when it comes to nouning verbs. Or verbing nouns.

Re: Changing Language Usage

Same here. In German you can noun every verb and most adjectives. Funnily, you can't verb every noun.
Hmm.. wouldn't nounify and verbify be more correct, at least gramatically?
