    1. It often seems to me that many people, even on JPR, have voluntarily given up

    on using many verbs, nouns, adjectives, and adverbs and replaced them with four letter words that mostly begin with f and end with k.

      2. I don't begrudge vulgarity

      as I see that as reality. One reason I posted this was because it was hilarious. The other reason was due to how American society seems content to turn grammar inside-out because it’s hip and cool.

      The only example that comes to mind, even though I love the channel, is TCM’s “Let’s Movie.”

      No, “Let’s watch movies.” It’s still a short sentence and still catchy ;)

      "You! Cake or death?" "Uh, cake for me, too, please." "Very well! Give him cake, too! We're gonna run out of cake at this rate. You! Cake or death?" "Uh, death, please. No, cake! Cake! Cake, sorry. Sorry..." "You said death first, uh-uh, death first!" "Well, I meant cake!" "Oh, all right. You're lucky I'm Church of England!" Eddie Izzard, Dress To Kill

            5. just an offhand comment because of "japalish" — where it's not uncommon to

            see things like “Let’s sushi!” on packaging, etc.
