Hicks say and write the damnedest things...


MR. EXECTROLUX never fails to send me some truly hickish grammar and spelling from his frightening little corner of Pennsyltucky. Looks like someone out his way is selling a boat that peddles. What exactly do you think it peddles? Your guess is as good as mine is...

I'm pretty damn sure this person meant to write PEDAL BOAT, but this is from Pennsyltucky, after all. The word in question is two syllables long, and this obviously lengthy word causes confusion in the slightly inbred little brains of some of the folks out there. Sigh.

Maybe they meant to write "Paddle Boat." Pedal boat and paddle boat can mean the same thing.
Ooo! Perhaps they wanted to write "pedal," but then changed their minds to "paddle," then while typing, intermarried the two words to create a snaggletoothed offspring.
