OFGEOGRAPHY’S REALLY FUCKING WEIRD NICOLAS CAGE PILLOWCASE GIVEAWAY!!!!!
this is a pillowcase. it is real. i really own it. it really is in my apartment all the time, waiting for me to come home from work, staring at me in the dark, thinking of ways that it can be a REAL DOUCHEBAG.
why do i own this pillowcase, you ask? a couple of reasons.
nicolas cage is my nemesis. why is he my nemesis? HE JUST IS. there is no rhyme or reason to it. sometimes you just look at a person’s face and think, “yeah, i’d punch it,” and you can’t explain that dark, ugly side of your character, but there it is, stealing the declaration of independence right under the u.s. government’s goddamn nose.

It’s a search of Google books, but the question still stands, what the Fuck happened in 1870
I CAN ANSWER THIS!!
In the Cornish dialect of English, Pokemon meant ‘clumsy’ (pure coincidence).
In the mid 1800s there was a surge of writing about the Cornish language and dialect in an attempt to preserve them with glossaries and dictionaries being written. I wrote about it HERE.
EDIT: The original NGram is a fake! So this makes Pokemon an even weirder coincidence.
Remember that time Neil thought he was just trollin’ the internet but then the “So Long As It’s Words” ladies pointed out that, in fact, he had accidentally chosen the exact moment when it was most likely that the word Pokemon had briefly (and completely coincidentally) been published in English literature?
