God Damn That Stupid Dr. Phil!

I have always hated Dr. Phil, even without seeing his show. It’s just unconscious knowledge that he is a jerk.

This week, everyone on TV is talking about him because of his interview with Casey Anthony‘s parents.   He’s been pimping his show with the Anthonys everywhere. And in one discussion, he agreed that the Anthonys had “a menagerie of excuses” for their daughter’s conduct.


Menagerie is a collection of animals, you fucking idiot Dr. Phil! You can find some online dictionaries that say you can also use it to mean a diverse group of things, BUT YOU CAN”T BECAUSE IT MEANS ANIMALS.

Words matter, remember?

Have you heard anyone  misuse  a word recently but you couldn’t kill them? Feel free to share your pain.

    @annemarie: AHAHAHAHAHA I almost pissed my pants with the larnyx thing, that’s hilarious! I’ve never heard that before but I bet you that now it’ll start coming up everywhere.

    kate, I really hope you are wrong about “could of” being acceptable speech. Jesus! I only recently found out that people did that and I was speechless… HOW?!?!

    Aja – Nothing is too low for that bastard.

    Debbie – I LOVE ‘vocal point.’

    Cricket9 – This gave me chills: ‘You can taste the different.’

    Julie and Suspended – People actually say ‘walla?!?”

    I just got an Anonymous blog comment on my post “Mummy Time” asking if I was wrapped in bandages and living in an Egyptian Tomb. Please tell me that the majority of Americans do realise that there are other dialects?!?

    One of the oddest/funniest ones I’ve heard recently was when one of my favorite people in the world, who is known for her misuse of the english language, used the word “travesty” instead of “tragedy” when referring to 9/11. I cringed.
    I agree with all of the above, especially “supposably” and “anyways”. Hate the misuse of the word “myself”. Many people seem to think that word is just a fancier way of saying “I”! Don’t get me started on stupid things like “they’re”, “their”, and “there”. And then there is grammar…
    Sorry, too much stupid for one day!

    SW – I’m afraid so; I’ve seen ‘wala’ more than once.

    There’s a lot of ignorance around the spelling and pronunciation of French words, I find.
    Here’s one that’s haunted me for nigh on twenty years. My boss sent the team a memo in which she wrote that we were for the ‘gillateen’ if targets weren’t met.
    Gillateen. Could’ve gone with chop. She went with gillateen.

    Another annoyance is when people insert ‘go ahead’ unnecessarily into sentences.

    “(Go ahead and) Take a seat over there.”
    “I (went ahead and) told him to go to hell.”

    ‘Turned around’ is another one.

    “I turned around and said that she didn’t know what she was talking about.”
    “She turned around and said I could leave early if I had finished all my assignments.”

    I turned around, she turned around, they all turned around. Are these people spinning like fucking tops or what?

  7. Julie says:

    I loathe people who overuse emoticons, but a special circle of hell is reserved for those who type out the words “happy face” or “sad face”.

    “I didn’t get what I wanted for my birthday, even though I’m an adult. Sad face.”

  8. Julie says:

    Writing ‘yanno’ instead of ‘you know’.

  9. Ur an idiot says:

    Your a fuckan moron cuz your trying to hard to make him look like an idiot it sounds like you jus sit there and watch his show to look for reasons he’s a idiot. Which I think he’s a complete fuckan retard and if I’d see him I’d punch him in te fuckan face. The real reason he’s an idiot is cuz he doesn’t help and just criticizes people, THAT’S ALL. Like did you see the one about the flasher, he was smart and trying to get over it and Dr. Dick kept telling him how wrong it is…and he’s like I know but at the time..and he keeps interrupting him SAY IT’S WRONG! Then the girl who got kidnaped for a decade he couldn’t help or say anything about!!

    Oh fuck. Thank you for asking. First, thank you for another hysterically funny entry on shit that must be said.

    This shit pisses me off: “I seen” (I seen you at the trailer park), “A whole nother” (when I seen you at the trailer park with my boo, it took consummate betrayal to a whole nother level), “to the fullest” (It’s my life and I wanna live it to the fullest), expecially (I was expecially pissed when I found out I was pregnant two weeks after group sex) and “mute point”. I have no way to use this as an example. Perhaps you can help?

    Dr Phil is a moron. He is supposed to be so educated and if he wasn’t allowed to use the word ah when he spoke, he would not be able to speak.
    I guess he gets paid by each word so he uses ah a lot.
    When he is using adjectives he goes on and on until I finally mute him.
    I hate him.
