BlowhardDear English Blowhards,

Thanks for your ever-vigilant quest to correct every single grammar faux-pas or mis-pronunciation in the world. Nothing is more refreshing than when you interrupt an entire train of thought to remind us that, “Actually, it’s pronounced nu-clear.”

Really, thanks. You’ve truly demonstrated your intelligence. Meanwhile, I will continue saying “RBIs” even if there are no such thing as “Runs batted ins.” Because I’m not as smart as you.

In case you were wondering, it’s pronounced “hippofuckyoumus.”
