Local Yokels

It's pretty sad when even the local news can't spell Phoenix properly.

Survey Says ...

It seems to me that if you're going to spell Phoenix phonetically, you'd start with an F, but that's just me.

Their prerogative

VH1 doesn't need permission, it makes its own decisions. Including the decision to forgo any kind of proofreading.

TGI ...T

At first glance, there's nothing wrong with this one. Except that this year, August 11th was a Tuesday. Friday was the 14th.

I'm assuming the game was on Friday the 14th, but I can't be sure.

I think they mean "cleavage"

They must. Because as far as I know, "cleavitch" is not a word.

Not for the "feint" of heart

Manticore's Moustache is a blog I check fairly often. It features odd and random pictures and videos. I like that sort of thing. I did not, however, like what I saw on one post:

I don't know how well that picture's going to show up, but in case you can't see it very well (curse you, screenshot!), I'll tell you what jumped out of the blog and choked me. The blog author says the woman in the video feints. F-e-i-n-t-s. To the best of my knowledge, to feint is to fake someone out. I'm pretty sure that the woman in the video fainted, f-a-i-n-t-e-d. Unless she was faking. In which case she feinted a faint.
