There goes that stray X again...

Blosxom


First Sxoop, now Blosxom.

Adding X's at the beginning or end of the word is so passé ("xtreme!" this and that), so let's throw them right in the middle of the word! Note that it's Blosxom not Bloxsom, the latter would be more easily pronounced.

I know this is really geek or me...but with english rules, an x after an s is just pronounced like sz, so it'd be like SZoop, or Bloszom, which just sounds like blossom anyways, just with a little oophm

What's with the X? X after S is not so clever to look at anyway, they are just read as both "S"

They are just trying to play off the X-games success with the younger generation.
