Participles and nouns, get 'em while they're hot!

One of the sponsored ads that turned up on my Google search just now was seriously weird:

"Looking for verbal suffixes? Auctions on verbal suffixes ending soon! Buy your verbal suffixes, get our best deal!"

I wonder if they have a mint-condition Sumerian subordination marker?

Was it Haig who said, "Senator, there is no noun that can't be verbed"?

Normally I avoid giving those google ad sites the satisfaction, but I would have clicked on that one. Did you see what they were really offering? (Or maybe you were scared it was p0rn.)

After Geekman infected our computer with NINE viruses the other day (after googling for a cracked version of Mathmatica), I am terrified of clicking on these sorts of things. Porn wouldn't have freaked me out too much, but weird Eastern European virus-machines do.
