@TilleyWink,
Is that anything like, "I yam what I yam?"

Once a friend and I were working away on a job remodeling a part of a church. As I frequently do, I imitated a cartoon voice, in this instance, Popeye. "I yam what I yam." The friend became very angry. He thought I was mocking the Bible, in which God tells Moses, "I am that I am." We had a nice little argument, then went back to work.

Some folks are just so over-sensitive about anything religeous, are they, Edgar?

I guess the guy thought my irreverence extended to going into their building and attacking them. Normally, I live and let live. (Even if I am a Texan).

@edgarblythe,
Watch it! There is a Church of I AM out there, and it's been around for a long time. They have a somewhat checkered past that includes violence.

"No problem." This might be just a regional phrase? I do not know for sure? "Hey, no problem."

@Foofie,
Crap. People around here say 'no problem' when all they mean is 'you're welcome'. Sounds like they've just given you their right leg, but hey, don't feel obligated, or anything.

The resident genius( or so he says) on these threads, is Setanta ( aided, no doubt, by his bitch dog).

Setanta wrote:

I want to scream everytime i hear a news reader or commentator use the word iconic. Iconic means formulaic, following a convention (as was the case with the religious paintings known as icons). I almost never hear it properly used, but more than that, i hear it used ad nauseum. A commentator referred to a musician's new CD as "icnonic,"

******************************************

End of quote

I don't think that the Genius Setanta got it right. NO commentator referred to a musician's new CD as "icnonic".

Is it the Genius Setanta's vision that is going? Or is he into premature Alzheimer's?

I think it is the latter because he seems to be unable to write more than one or two paragraphs coherently.

I presciently nominate the following words:

Phased Withdrawl( the abortive attempt by BO to assure the voters who wanted the US to leave IRAQ, that we are indeed doing so but it will be in PHASES.

Under Insured(the ploy to convince the rabble that no one has enough health insurance and we all need more--courtesy of increased taxes, of course.

The English language is full of words to express feelings so why do women have to say "OOOH MY GOOOD" several times when someone is telling them a story about what happened.

@saab,
One more word I think is being misused.
There are no politician in modern western world who can be compared with the Nazis no matter how much we dislike that person.
There is no Holocaust, there is no dictator like Hitler in our modern western world.
Calling a politician Nazi makes the real Nazis seem much more innocent than they were.
There is close to two generations who did not live during WWII and know very little about it. Then there are the denyers of Holocaust, for them it is just water on their mill." Look this politician is a nazi and there is no Holocaust, which proves there was none during WWII".
There is a so many wonderful four-letter words which even better can express our dislike about someone.
