Unwise Words

From Britain’s Next Top Model on Monday night:

‘My stomach literally fell out of my body.’

I can’t remember who said it but I think it was chicken-lips Lauren. It wouldn’t have been so bad if she’d been talking about her first run-in with bulimia or the norovirus. But she wasn’t. She was talking about the length of some heels she had to walk in or something.


Stefanie to win.


And Karloff for Mayor.

When precisely did "literally" change it's meaning to become, literally, the opposite of what it used to mean? Eh?

Yay! Greengrocer's apostrophe! Respect, everyone.

Is it wrong that I find Boris Karloff more attractive than 'Stefanie'?

The best defence here is to brutally misuse the word yourself. I'm particularly fond of "I am literally over the moon".

Greengrocer's apostrophe! I'd never heard that before. How wry.

Yes, Kim, that's wrong. And please don't call her 'Stefanie'. Her name is Stefanie. Or, even better, Stefanie.

Emordino, you're right. By the way, your comment made me cough up my pelvis. Quite literally.
