I Don't Think That Word Means What You Think It Does (a continuing series)


So, buried in this Times review of what promises to be an utterly unwatchable television series is buried this little gem:

Though the pilot was directed by the accomplished film director Taylor Hackford (“An Officer and a Gentleman,” “Ray”), “E-Ring” incorporates the rah-rah quality of last year’s movie “Team America,” but here it tries to be serious, not satyrical.

Emphasis added.


The copy editing at the Times has been shocking lately. I saw some real stinkers in some of David Pogue's columns, too.

Nice! I appreciate misspellings that reveal too much knowledge, even though the correct spelling would have been better in the first place.
