I *Think* That Was in English ...

I was just asked if I'm still a notarary republic.  I almost replied, "Nope, never have been."


There's a line in My Fair Lady, in the song "Why Can't the English Learn to Speak?", where a character follows that question with "In America, they haven't spoken it in years."

Word.

As Earl Potts would say, "We speak 'Merican here."

Rev. Paul said...

joated ... yes, that. At least kinda sorta.

Oh man... pathetic...

Rev. Paul said...

Cathy, you're welcome. :)

NFO, I could tell the caller was struggling to remember the words, but ... wow.

'Word'
REALLY?
I don't know what's worse in today's world, Ebonics or geekspeak?

Whenever someone says OUT LOUD 'LOL' or 'irregardless', I become concerned.
'Suposably' really bothers me!
Or "Are you coming with?'. minus the 'me'.

Word.

Guffaw, I agree with you on all counts (and probably others). I was trying to be clever. Obviously, it didn't work; however, I was mainly referring to the caller's turning five syllables into eight. :)
