Not my cup of tea either, but sportaholic DP was watching and laughing and I was just 'glancing' and it wound me up so much! Had completely forgotten about it until I saw this come back up in TIO and it has totally reinstated my rage! It's not an in-joke - it's not bloody funny. They don't stand for anything. Well, not except for E(fucking)diots.
Watching Question of Sport earlier with DP (I know, I know!), when I noticed something so incredibly annoying I felt like exploding! The team captains names were spelt like the following... Bill BEaumont Phil TufnEll
I nearly burst I was so irritated - do you think I could email someone to explain why the e was in capitals when none of the others were?
Is this what Pedants corner is all about? I've never really ventured over here, not being much of a spelling or grammar queen, but I was so wound up that DP called me a pedant, and I instantly knew where to come with my irrational problem!
