This is quite possibly the best thing I've read in at least the last 38 hours. My hat's off to you. I'm quickly becoming a fan of your wordaliciouness.

Finally! The long-awaited 'licious post. I'm honored! Even though I don't think I'll ever be able consume the Chililiciously Hot Sriracha sauce, I can't wait to dig in to some of these links.

I've never told anyone this before, but the inspiration for my business name was actually the rap group Blackalicious. I saw them perform 4 years ago in San Francisco, right around the time I was brainstorming names. Yep, I owe it all to rap!


@Boothism and @Copylicious: Glad you enjoyed the liciouspalooza!

Not quite a brand name, but remember that Furby toy which was the big thing about a decade ago? When you "fed" one(by pressing its tongue switch) it would sometimes say "Furbalicious!"-- or possibly "Furbylicious", I'm not sure how it was meant to be spelled.

Attempting to search that, however, turns up references to a dog grooming studio called "Furbelicious".

"licious" is so delightfully productive! And you can even sometimes tack further suffixes onto it-- if you're trying to be maybe a tad silly, that is. :) One of my type-1-diabetic Twitter cohorts writes at Diabetesaliciousness: http://diabetesaliciousness.blogspot.com/. (@diabetesalic on Twitter, which I wonder, is it pronounced "diabetes alice" or "diabetes alec"?)
