Sorry, but this headline just made me chuckle: Animal linguistics: In Racine, pets are still 'owned' If you've hung out with gamers, or with people who have hung out with them, you know that "owned" (or more properly, "pwned") is a synonym for "defeated" or "bested." The hed gives me the image of a guy playing checkers with his dog, and upon winning, jumping up, dancing and pointing at the dog, saying "Haaaa!!! OWNED!!!!!"
