An online journal in which members of The Society for the Promotion of Good Grammar document their noble efforts.
«We hereby challenge you all to find worse fake marketing words than “babyz.”»“Grrlz”?Maybe it's not “marketing”, but I’m sure it’s been used to market stuff. Maybe at Target, or some such.
I'm not sure which made me puke in my mouth more, the word "babyz," or the fact that there is a video game where you dress up babies. Jeez, people, can't we all just play Mario Kart and get along?
I'm not so fond of grrlz either, Barry. A Facebook reader suggested "creme" as a deeply offensive substitute. I think they have to use it, though, for non-dairy "cremes."Kate, I think we should make the babies play Mario Kart while we take naps.
I like the naps idea. :)I also am okay with "creme," if only because it reminds me of Cadbury Creme Eggs. "Creme" can't be all bad. ;)
Nintendo DS has a lot of ridiculous titles:Petz Dogz FamilyPetz Hamsterz FamilyPetz KittensHello FlowerzBut, the worst I found so far was Foto Showdown. I was hoping that "Foto" was a fighting style or something, but no, it's about taking PHOTOS. Misspelling can be interesting and creative (for example: Rytmik), but in this case I feel it's probably teaching at least a small percentage of users that the correct spelling is with an "f" and not a "ph" -- yikes!
I nominate Rhapsody music with their excellent use of the word "awesomer" to describe how great their service is.
My kid goes to Kicking Kids Kamp, which I think is a poor purposefully misspelled word choice.
