    The phrase
    "It is what it is...."
    Makes me want to yell "No shxt?"
    at the top of my lungs,
    and punch the offender in the throat.
    I hear They call him Flipper. Yes... yes, I'm serious.

    News reporters, when referring to a defendant in court seem all use the term 'pleaded' these days. That really grates on my ear.
    I grew up hearing the word 'pled' in such instances. Both are technically acceptable, but 'pleaded' just sounds wrong or lacking in verbal elegance to me.

    Interesting. I guess I'm with you on this, but grammarians are not.
    Pleaded is the standard past-tense and past-participial form of the verb plea. Pled has always been considered incorrect by usage authorities, but itís so common that we have to accept it. Ö But because pleaded is much more common and is unanimously accepted by all dictionaries and usage authorities, it is safer than pled. And it should be noted that pleaded is preferred by an especially wide margin in publications known for high editorial standards.

    Well I was really wrong then. I always thought "pled" was spelled "plead", but pronounced like "bread".

    That this is their position does not make it correct.

    At my work the word "Super" amplifies every adjective - Super excited, super thankful, super pleased, super, super super.

    The other one that makes me cringe is "irregardless" which (1) was never really a word and (2) is always used incorrectly.

    Win-Win
    Had a boss once who used Win-Win-Win, except he couldn't explain why the third Win (which was us) wasn't really a Lose.
