» The B3TA Confessional

While on a holiday travelling around Ireland with some friends, in one of the pubs we stopped at for lunch I went to the lavatory only to notice that someone had written "PIRA" on the back of the door.

Now, I'm usually a thoroughly law-abiding chap who wouldn't vandalise anything, but given this mark of support for a terrorist organisation, just this once I couldn't resist.

Assuming it's still there, the door now reads "ARR, PIRATES!"

» Irrational Hatred

People who use the word "addicting".
This word didn't even exist a few years ago, and then it got taken up by certain gaming sites - there's even one with it in the website title for christ's sake!

"Oh you should play this game, it's very addicting."


It isn't.

Unless it's addicting you to it right this second then the word you're looking for is addictive. That is the adjective. "Addicting" would be the verb - if it even exists as a word, which is doubtful.

Do you say "he was very talkating?" "He felt very apprehensing?" "The artist was very creating?" No, you don't, because you'd sound like a twat.

"Addicting" is no exception. Stop using it.

» Famous people I hate

I rewrote some verse about everyone's favourite media mogul a few years ago.

'twas rumour from the slimy toad
Did wire and mumble through airwaves
All flimsy was the evidence
Yet the toad's wrath outflamed

Beware the murmurdoch my son!
The scoop that bites; the story's cash
Beware the hubbub heard and shun
The immigrant job snatch

He took his writing pad in hand
Long time the ministers he sought
So rest'd his feet, on Downing Street
And stood a while in thought

And as in plaintive thought he stood
The slimy toad, with eyes of flame
Came striding down the street of fame
And chose gov'ment again

One two! one two! and then a speech
The camera flash went snicker-snack
They left him fed, and had his head
Emblazoned on the rag

And hast thou chos'n the government?
Come to my arms, my beamish hack
And in five years, or so't appears
We'll have the Tories back

'twas rumour from the slimy toad
Did wire and mumble through airwaves
All flimsy was the evidence
Yet the toad's wrath outflamed

Apologies for length, etc.

As defined.


Definitely not "definately". If you let it be spelled "definately", you soon end up with people spelling it "defiantly", which is a different word altogether, and where would that leave us?

Spelling and grammar are there for a reason: they try to leave us mutually intelligible. If you start arsing around with them as you see fit, don't blame the rest of us when you come across as a gibbering idiot.

(See also: "could of", "should of"...)
