I hate it when HE says the wrong word.

As Richard Hershberger says in his recent comment about the banned words list it's pretty sad that Lake Superior State University is cashing in on snide opinions. They really should just publicize their excellent hockey program.

These peevefests don't change the language. They just encourage similar rants by other grouches. Follow this link to The Conversation on KUOW. The call-in episode is mostly about language peeves.

Or just click on one of these links to listen:

The payoff comes pretty early. Listen very carefully around the 5:30 mark to Jodi's complaint.

If you don't feel like listening then just go read TStT's post about the show. This is hilarious.
