Yeah, who puts an unnecessary "u" in words like color?
The same people who pronounce it colour!

Oy. Let's not get this started again.

I have relatives who already chased a bunch of these guys across New England and the Tidewater.

They probably are unaware that 'I'll knock you up in the morning" is a peferctly innocuous wake-up call!

Ironic, isn't it? You'd think the British would be able to speak the King's English, wouldn't you?

EDIT: This just occurred to me: Is there a British version of Sesame Street? If so, is one of the characters named Biscuit Monster?
Just asking............

The Bible was written in the King's spoken English long before it became fashionable to brew tea in the salt-water of Boston Harbour. If it was good enough for God, you would think it should be acceptable to an American.

That's Harbor. Boston Harbor. (If you're from Boston, it's pronounced hahbah.)

I thought that the K-3 was supposed to be a hot new product, but I just read that the LCD display can freeze. Hot cameras are not supposed to freeze. This is all being caused by the Ricoh logo. Can the destruction of Tokyo be far away?
