    Similarly, if you're a comedian who prides himself on his intellect and semantic wizardry, wouldn't ya think he'd use the word 'syntax' correctly?! :roll:
    Like me his job is to be funny, not to be some book learned english teacher.
    His 'shtick' is to appear erudite and then ridicule The Great Unwashed - not to just 'be funny'. He is hoist on his own petard (to cite a pedantic cliche) if he appears 'uneducated', as he chides those who are ignorant.
    Man with big beard and big words, he funny man. Not to be taken seriously.

    This thread (and others) were designed to be political. Either remove them or permit them.

    This gets a pass? Be consistent.

    Dennis Miller addressed this very question on his great 1988 (20 years ago?!!! aiyeee!!!) release, The Off-White Album:

    <<Is it nuclear or new-koo-ler? You know, I've actually heard U.S. Senators on C-SPAN as new-koo-ler. Now consider me reactionary, but I don't think you should vote on this shit until you learn how to pronounce it.

    I mean, can we get a consensus on this one way or another before they do drop the bomb? I'd hate to spend my last few moments on the planet mired in a syntax discrepancy....>>
