Wonderful. It immediately reminded me of George Carlin’s ideas. Honest, simple, direct language versus more syllables to make something sound more important or to make it more politically correct. One hilarious example of how this gets worse over time is in the videos below, “Poor people used to live in slums. Now, the economically disadvantaged occupy sub-standard housing in the inner cities.”

Here are some of his videos on language:

I’ll tell you, these haters make me want to vomit. Well, maybe not vomit. They make me want to engage in an involuntary personal protein spill.

One clap, two clap, three clap, forty?

By clapping more or less, you can signal to us which stories really stand out.
