A ridiculous misspelling...


How many times do I have to mention that this word should be spelled ridiculous? The only way that rediculous could ever be a word is if something was diculous* once and then was diculous again. That would be rediculous...right? Sigh.

Thanks to DAVE for finding this mistake. It has something to do with Fallout 3, this video game that apparently he's really good at (the game looks way too complicated for little ol' me...although my video game knowledge and abilities are limited and I can't decently play anything more advanced than Super Mario Bros. 1, 2, 3, or Super Mario World, please know that I am crazy good at those games and could kick your ass at them no matter how sober or drunk I might be. Just sayin').

And on a semi-related note...happy, happy, happy birthday to Dave! (I hope it's a
great day and that you aren't stuck at work all night!)

* Diculous is totally not even a word. Obviously.

hahaha Diculous good post! BTW Nuka Cola Quantum has twice the flavor, twice the kick, twice the calories and over 2 times as much Strontium 238 as the original Nuka Cola! You made my day totally awesome with this post!

Ponders the possible definitions of the word diculous.

THE GRAMMARPHILE said...

I've thought of a few definitions for it, too...not surprisingly, most of mine are kinda dirty. ;)

Holy shit! I don't think I've ever seen it mispelled that way!

This is the second time I've seen it misspelled that way. I giggle every time I see it spelled like that! :)

Oh lil' Miss Grammarphile, it is on like Donkey Kong if you ever come to Nashville. I will fire up Super Mario World, and you will know become intimately familiar with defeat.

I mean that in the friendliest way possible, of course. ;)

Oh, no no NO, EVula. I am the reigning queen of Super Mario Brothers. And I still remember all the little tricks to the game. Nobody's gonna beat me in those games! (Yes, I am totally cocky about it.) And I can beat 'em sober, drunk, and anywhere in between. You're cool, EVula, and I'd actually feel really guilty when I'd pretty much wipe the floor with you in that game! ;)
