EDITORIAL COMMENT



All the word play on this page, and throughout
this entire website, was used intentionally
and deliberately.  It was included to show
the vagaries of the American language
and what can be accomplished
with this astounding medium, largely.
It is 'wonderful' to see and hear proper
American language used properly by Americans.
But lately, it is being 'butchered' unmercifully.

Both me and you know this is true; ya know?
But you and I should know better.



Please use the form, below,
to send your comments to me.
If there is a pun, or any odd use
of the American language,
that you would like to see included
on this page, please include it
with your comments.
Proper credit will be given when used.
Don't forget to include your name
or e-mail address.
