If you look at the source you will see that they are just quoting Julie Birchill, I think she deserves some credit for saying it. Polarpanda 23:07, 8 February 2010 (UTC)

You're right. -- WikiPedant 06:02, 9 February 2010 (UTC)

quote as adjective[edit]

The quote given here corresponds to the past tense of pussywhip, IMHO, and not the adjective. --SixTwo 16:35, 11 November 2010 (UTC)

Always an interesting question, the point at which a past participle graduates into a full-fledged adjective. I've left both POS's. But, you're right, this quotation, with "pussywhipped" followed by "by", should be treated a verb form. -- Ghost of WikiPedant 20:23, 11 November 2010 (UTC)
