The origin of the word "blog"

Blog

My crack research team, laboring in the interstices of the internet, has returned with something wonderful.

In a 1953 story entitled "Scrambled Eggs Super," Dr. Seuss wrote:

    I went for the kind that were mellow and sweet

    And the world's sweetest eggs are the eggs of the Kweet

    Which is due to those very sweet trout which they eat

    And those trout ... well, they're sweet 'cause they only eat Blogs

    And Blogs, after all, are the world's sweetest frogs

    And the reason they're sweet is, whenever they lunch

    It's always the world's sweetest bees that they munch

    And the reason no bees can be sweeter than these...

    They only eat blossoms off Beezlenut Trees

    And those Beezlenut Blossoms are sweeter than sweet

    And that's why I nabbed several eggs from the Kweet.
