    Okay, I believe we have a slight misnomer in the mix of suffixes. IZE

    By definition "IZE" has 4 basic uses:
    1. forming verbs meaning
    2. make or become.....fossilize
    3. treat in a specified way.......pasteurize
    4. follow a specified practice......agonize

    So, what is it with "Colonize"? If everything is according to Hoyle in the word "colonize" then indeed the present resident in the White House has finished what the British, Spanish, French, Germans, Dutch, etc. couldn't accomplish. He has colon-ized the U.S.A.

    Yes, I think I will skip the lobotomize section of the program! It is just not something I am interested in at this point in time, regardless of how many people might think I am in need of one!

    Peanut'-ise yourself

    "Remember back when "The Simpsons" movie came out in 2007? Everybody you knew was making their own using the movie marketing site's character generator. The 2015 version of this phenomenon is peanutizeme.com, a place where you can make your own "Peanuts" character to match your physical characteristics".
