I’d like to buy an “ed!”

Call me persnickety, but not only does “butter popcorn” sounds excessively greasy, but how on earth do you get it to pop? Tack on an “ed” and you’re looking at at my favorite snack (although I prefer homemade and not too much butter.)

    I have to agree with this –

  2. When your brain notices little details like that it tends to conjure up all the wrong imagery, doesn’t it? 🀣

  3. Your English teachers would be proud. πŸ™‚

    • πŸ™‚ I grew up this way and can’t help seeing or hearing when something is wrong. One thing I’ve noticed on TV is that many announcers leave of “ly”, as in “That happened really quick” instead of “quickly.” People for the Ethical Treatment of Adverbs are NOT happy! πŸ™‚

    Ran out of room? I think I’d like it with the ‘ed’ as well.

    Yeah, that’s as bad as Smoke meat. Does that mean you roll it up and try to light the bloody end?

    Attention to detail goes a long way most of the time!

  7. I read a wonderful article once, detailing the tremendously competitiveness between popcorn people on how to get the biggest “pop” from a kernel of popcorn. It has to do with the amount of water they can get into each kernel that explodes into popcorn. Fascinating.

    Sometimes I laugh at all the misspelling and shortening of words and words left out…but sometimes I only get tired. What is it with people? This one was almost OK though….

  9. Haha Yes, you are persnickety and what a lovely word that is. Almost as delicious as buttered popcorn. πŸ˜…

    I’m totally with you on this Janet.

    Popcorn is my favorite as well!

What do you think? I'd love to hear your thoughts on this, that or the other thing.
