Flummox Should Be Destroyed and Removed From the English Language

The headline in the sports section of today's paper is "Bucks Flummox Spurs".

A search on google for the word "flummox "results in about 90,000 page hits.

If a word only appears 90,000 times in google's index, it should be removed from the English language.

Where do I file the paperwork to get that done?

"Greg Lange" is a proper name. "Flummox" is a word. : )

The word "flummoxed" appears 400,000 times. It is more common to say that one is flummoxed (about or by something.)

You are obviously flummoxed about the word flummox, Greg.

That's a good point, Nels. I didn't think about that. Maybe "flummox" will be allowed to live.
