I am not a pedant. I am a twit.
But that does not work does it?

Can a day be humble?

I reckon he doesn't feel the least bit humble, but has been told to use some words which suggest he might be if you don't examine them too carefully.....

Should it be 'the most humbling day'??

the language made my teeth itch.

So did the man, and his son.

'humiliating' would have been a better choice of word wink

It made no sense.
And he had had it written down for him.
A man with 53000 employees who write copy and braodcast our language across several continents.
This alone is enough to grapple our language to safety and dismantle his media empire.

it was the way he said this via interrupting....

and even then, declared it as a warcry.

very odd.
