    Perhaps this guy would join me in starting some sort of an organization. Finally, I have an explanation.


    It appears that they do trace it to a Simpsons character.

    That should'nt come as much of a surprise. I mean, can't everything now be traced to a Simpsons character?

    I'll add this one to your list:

    Joe Blow? Not so much. As in: Drew Brees was a great signing. Daunte Culpepper? Not so much.

    It also bugs me when people say, "I know. Right?"

    Then again, lots of things bug me, which is why I have so few friends.

    Does anyone else watch or listen to sportscasters on a pleasant Saturday or Sunday and end up shouting at the sportscasters? I know that commentating on live TV or radio cannot be an easy job. And I know I've said things during media interviews that were probably not grammatically correct. But the way these people screw with the English language and make up their own words is just scary.

    I wish I could think of a good example right now. Last night, I did hear "Funnily enough, ..."

    I've heard some stuff that's made me say "Wow. Just. Wow." Funnily? Not so much.

    To be fair, if you use "Wow. Just Wow." You obviously need some kind of punctuation after the first wow.

    Shouldn't it be "Wow. Just, wow."?

    Using "would" after the fact, as in, "and he would make the basket." instead of the correct tense. -- Vern Lundquist
    Every gobstomping one of them using the passive voice instead of an active voice just so they can fill the fucking air with their sound.
    Ironic, because it never is. A million others. Literally! (See what I mean?)

    Misuse of "literally" just KILLS me. :mad:

    "He was literally puking his guts out." Really? His stomach and intestines were on the floor?

    There's a reference to it the second Austin Powers when Dr. Evil's chair goes nutso.
