In recent years Flippism (aka Flipism) has exploded on the public consciousness. When I started this Sisyphean enterprise sixteen years ago, there were very few references to the term (besides this blog) on the internet.

No longer. Here are a few ways the term has been commercialized:

Flipburger restaurant chain in Indonesia has a Flipism page on their website:

The online fashion site Lulu’s has a Flipism tote:

For a fee you can buy a research paper on Flipism from New York Essays:

Merchandising of Flipism just wouldn’t be complete without this T-Shirt from Teepublic:

In this litigious society the answer might be to sue the bastards. It just might be your ticket to easy street. Even if it were a suit just to ask for acknowledgement of the word and idea it would get you the recognition you deserve for your writing. Then you would be propelled to the top! Of something. Maybe.
