Murder most foul

Watching an American programme about the “World’s Deadliest Animals” (95% of which were American wildlife because what’s the point in scaring people with something that lives far away) I heard this most incredibly articulate wildlife expert and his well-expressed opinion that:-

“Prevention is the best method of not getting stung by a scorpion”

Which brings up the old argument. As a tool of communication, such language manages to get its message across not by content alone, but (arguably mainly) by context. Therefore it is doing its job used in the medium it was employed, the spoken word. But it just annoys me when people dem doan speak propah.

  3. Perhaps these people who have trouble speaking are being influenced by George Dubyah and his ‘nucular’ policies. 🙂
