Hump Day Grammar: February 16, 2011


So a girlfriend invited me to a Passion Party type of thing...and I, being the snarky bitch that I am, had a feeling that the website associated with this party might, just might, have a couple Hump Day-related errors for me.  So I searched that website...and found that I was right.

I didn't think testicles was that tough of a word to spell, but apparently these folks can't spell it.  I was going to make the argument that if they'd just said balls instead, they'd probably have spelled that just fine--but balls just doesn't have the same ring that testicles does, huh?

And what the hell is that ling doing there?  What is that even supposed to be?  I haven't figured it out...

The moral of the story: Invite a Grammarphile to a Passion Party, and she might just get all nerdy on you.  Happy Hump Day, folks...treat (and spell) those testicles well!  :)

In other news, I've been writing my ass off lately.  I don't always just write about makeup (although hey, this is a really fun article about Urban Decay's 24/7 Glide-On Shadow Pencils--complete with photos!)...I sometimes write about fashion, too.  I got to write about the Betsey Johnson fashion show on Monday night...check it out here!

Yeah, Testicles just give a party a classier feel, unlike the ball, scrotum, or nutsack stag parties...hahahaha!

Plus, "testicles" is just a fun and funny-sounding word to say! Much more fun than plain ol' "balls."

It is, it sounds like the name of a forgotten Greek God!
