I, too, shall now make every effort ...

... to promote the meme of Dr. Escalate Embuggerance and Dr. Holistic Feisty.

That link's from Language Log, and I'm quoting the commenter called Mertseger. How this accident happened is explained here.

I don't know why, but I feel that Holistic is a female name, like “Holly”, and Escalate is probably, but not necessarily, male. It could be one of those crossover names, like “Evelyn”.

Please do! Maybe Google's metadata software has got mixed up with their word verification software. I'm always intrigued by the verbal curios it comes up with, and wonder about a novel that begins: 'Numat wored in my amette, quilo grasped between indumens and feeling ingly, I nooly squiess a mentsbe to Dencona...' 'Quilo' is wonderful: a quill/biro.
