You Learn Something New Every Day.

So, I'm writing lots of back cover copy today. There's a very limited amount of language that's applicable to the backs of medical (specifically radiology) texts, so I've had to use Thesaurus.com quite a bit to keep from saying the same exact things on every book.

According to this particular resource, an acceptable synonym for "information" is "hot poop."

This is how the world would be different if this were true:

Can I please have your contact hot poop?
Dial "Hot Poop" for directory assistance.
I work in Hot Poop technology.
Freedom of Hot Poop Act.

The Hot Poop Superhighway!

i call shenannigans. "hot poop" is no synonym for "information". some trickster sneaked that into the thesaurus to see if anyone was paying attention. sort of like how revisionists did with the King James Bible....

I'd have a whole entry. Synonyms for Kathy include: awesome, cool, awesomely cool, super genius, awesomely cool super genius, Ms. Cacace if you're nasty.

Is "God" another synonym for Kathy, or is that your reaction?
