Babies and Grammar

Apparently it is very difficult for celebrities to speak grammatically once they have conceived and/or borne children. Christina Aguilera's people issued a news release last week with an I/me error. Matthew McConaughey did the same thing earlier this week.

Here he is on the miracle of parenthood (and kids, let this be a warning to you—this is your mind on nude bongo playing after consuming copious amounts of marijuana):

"Wish us the best, keep us in your prayers, and God bless evolution. Thanks for being fans of me and my work and now this new and miraculous chapter in my life, as me and Camila and our child do our best to just keep living.”

We're all for evolution here at SPOGG, even if we oppose letting language evolve so much that "I" and "me" become interchangeable.
