Word? Word.

I like today's Word of the Day from Merriam-Webster:
quidnunc \KWID-nunk\ noun

: a person who seeks to know all the latest news or gossip : busybody

..."What's new?" That's a question every busybody wants answered. Latin-speaking Nosey Parkers might have used some version of the expression “quid nunc,” literally "what now," to ask the same question...
"Quidnunc" should be the name of a band. Maybe it'd be like Art Brut.
