If you can patent life forms, why not words? Here’s my claim for the verb form of “Petrino.”

Petrino’s, um, grand exit from the Falcons has been well documented. We’ve made up better words—blog, for instance—and far less useful words—oh, say, wardrobe malfunction. I think the language is richer and more wonderful with this one in the lexicon.
