Neil D BS: Language Pet Peeves (487* d) RE: BS: Language Pet Peeves 31 May 19


Mrrzy said: "People are hanged. Pictures are hung."
Reminds me of the scene from "Blazing Saddles" when Bart, who had recently been spared hanging and appointed sheriff, runs into an old acquaintance who says : "Bart, they told me you was hung". Bart responds "and they was right".

My pet peeve is intentionally misspelled word in products or company names. When I used to make meat deliveries in Cleveland, the two big grocery chains on the East Side were Bi-Rite and Sav-Mor. It drove me to distraction.
