A man after my own heart

Posted on 05 September 2005

I’m not sure how it’s taken me so long to stumble across this, but I’ll take this opportunity to make the most of it and praise the genius that is Bad Gas. Whoever wrote this article about the misuse of the English language should be knighted immediately. Please allow me to quote:

“If I were asked to compile a list of crimes in order of seriousness, starting with the least serious, it would go something like this:

- Speeding

- Shoplifting

- Burglary

- Assault

- Armed robbery

- Rape

- Paedophilia

- Murder

- Misuse of the English language

Enough said. Click here to read the entry in its entirety, and – if you’re like me (which, let’s face it, you’re probably not) – bow down and worship!
