Why am I even answering that anyway, you're just asking to satisfy your own pedantic OCD mind that I use the correct term.


You read too much into that one - it was just a silly riddle!

No I didn't. Will you direct me to it, or just repeat it?

- People who use the word "retard"
- People who think my accent is "cute"
- People who try and copy things I say in my "cute" accent and end up sounding like massive knob'eads, but think they're getting it spot-on

Bumper stickers - NOBODY CARES if your kid is honor student of the bloody century, you love you Chevy or that you think Sarah Palin is great.
People that move to the US and 5 minutes later start speaking with a weird accent that they think sounds American.
Starbucks - Shit coffee is still shit coffee even if you gave me half a gallon of it for 3 bucks.

You left out:
Slugs - eeewwwwww!
Wasps - shriek and ouch!
Drivers entering the interstate highway at 40 mph with no turn signal to indicate they plan to merge, completely oblivious to traffic coming from their left because their CELL PHONE IS IN THE WAY!

And you're right - who gives a rat's ass if your kid is smarter than a toadstool! Or your beloved Yorkie?
Also, what about the Americans who, after spending 10 minutes drooling over the British accent they've been listening to, start speaking with what they think sounds like a British accent??????? aaaaAAAAARRRRGH!

(Personally, the only bumper sticker I ever saw that I thought was really clever was the inverted "W" with "the moron" printed underneath. When I saw that one, ILMAO!!)
Triple ditto on the Starbuck's thing.
