do I have to google it?

OK, Googled it.

Corporate brand names are not verbs. Just like a piece of tissue paper is not called Kleenex.
Defeat the brainwashing. It is called doing a web search, not googling it.

But yea, I guess this was funny.


To Google

Actually it is considered a transitive verb.





Look up google in Wiktionary, the free dictionary.
As a result of the increasing popularity and dominance of the Google search engine,[1] usage of the transitive verb[2] to google (also spelled Google) grew ubiquitously. The neologism commonly refers to searching for information on the World Wide Web, regardless of which search engine is used.[3] The American Dialect Society chose it as the "most useful word of 2002."[4] It was added to the Oxford English Dictionary on June 15, 2006,[5] and to the eleventh edition of the Merriam-Webster Collegiate Dictionary in July 2006.[6]

Your referencing a user built online dictionary. That does not count it is not recognized internationally by official institutions, unless they of course start getting money from Google to say so.
