I'm gonna LITERALLY kill someone

If I hear one more idiot misuse literally, all hell is going to break loose. On the news an elected public official said; not once, not twice, but THREE times..."I literally died." Well hell, doesn't that make you a freaking ghost????

I literally laughed literally out literally loud.

There was this woman on TV who said "I literaly had butterflies in my stomach...". Huh?

Ahhh...dontcha love it? That's one of my peeves too.

Why doens't anyone abuse figuratively? You could be a lot more creative that way ;-)

I dislike the use of the word "tout." The original English meaning was to spy on racehorses. Headline writers seem to be fond of it, though.
