As a writer it's probably no surprise that I have a passionate interest in language. It's not as all-consuming as my love of Doctor Who or calling Men's Rights "Activists" terrible people, but yeah, it's up there. Lately, the thing that has been pricking at my brain are the little words and phrases that people hurl at you to tell you that you, yes you, are a mindless follower unworthy of the title of human.
And each one simply proves that the person throwing it at you is a misinformed ninny that has swallowed every wrong bit of trivia that has ever gutterballed into their ear canal before hawking it back at some poor person on Facebook like electric smoker's lung.
Allow me to explain.
