very much enjoyed a sketch by a comedian (cannot remember who) about redundant letters and getting the back row to stand up spelling out the word Queue and asking people to sit down if they thought their letters were redundant 😁 Then did a phonetic rendition of the Owl and Pussy Cat!

I’m a bit of a spelling and grammar facist anyway but the level of literacy on things like Facebook etc is absolutely appalling.

a no (since when is it quicker to write ‘a’ instead of ‘I’)

are dog is missing

And if criticised about it, they’ll argue fiercely that it doesn’t matter. More ons.

My head literally exploded reading this thread.

Figuratively speaking, I dislike how people say literally when they mean metaphorically.

Must admit I always thought "Trump Pence" sounded more like a currency than a campaign slogan.
