One does not simply or into dord

Från Memebase precis nyligen:
Och skulle någon nu undra över worm-ursprunget så finns etymologin här. Ovanstående process lade dock grunden till åtminstone ett ord - från Wikipedia:
On July 31, 1931, Austin M. Patterson, Webster's chemistry editor, sent in a slip reading "D or d, cont./density." This was intended to add "density" to the existing list of words that the letter "D" can abbreviate. The slip somehow went astray, and the phrase "D or d" was misinterpreted as a single, run-together word: Dord.
