General mispronunciations do irritate me immensely

Ian Collins on Talksport pronounces pronunciation as proNOUNciation.  It'd be funny if it was a gag, but it isn't, he's serious!

In the Boots round the corner from my work the girls never stops asking me if i have a boots's card.


As in Bootzizz? Yeah, that one sucks. It's the verbal equivalent of people pluralising with apostrophies.

In fact, I think any time I hear someone mispronounce or use poor grammar in the future, I will whip out a big red marker and draw a large cross over their face.

If we start talking about pronunciation on Talksport we'll be here all night.  I enjoy the way Mike Parry tries to suggest he is more intelligent than his listeners by pronouncing any foreign country, name, footy player in an entirely obscure and incorrect manner.

What do you mean you want examples?!  Don't be silly.  If you know, you know.

Muppet. When not referring to bits of cloth on sticks.


Why do people use the word "muppet" as an insult despite the fact that the Muppets are great?

I really hate it when people go "Mmmmmmm!" when they're describing food they like, especially if they're doing it with their mouths full. That's just plain ill-mannered.

Minging. Since when does that word mean an ugly person? Minging always meant something smelly when I were a lad.
And people who say "He/she's horny" to describe someone they find attractive. What, how do you know they're horny? Huh? Eh? Wha?
