    Ha, one of my favorite parts of Friends was when Joey calls it a "moo point." Then explains it by saying "it's a cow's opinion, so it doesn't matter, it's moo."  And Rachel says, "Have I been living with Joey for too long or does that actually make sense?"I watch Friends a lot.

    Too often I see it spelled "mute point."And I'm really not so sure if they know what they're trying to say.

    Fishy sucks is another one. I mean, sucks and awesome are pretty close, so I can see how it gets misconstrued, but yeah.

    What? Brazil is next to Spain? When did it move? Are they now on the same continent? I hate that my 33 year old coworker who writes congradulations instead of congratulations all the time.  he thinks since you say it to Graduates, its has grad in the middle.

    Since we see so many of these mistakes on the boards, do you guys ever wonder if the people who make those mistakes read posts like this and get embarrassed?  Are we making a difference anywhere?   Maybe this is the new way to teach grammar.

    Lady at work: "mines" instead of "mine" College Professor: "unavaidable" instead of "unavailable" I hate when people say "adver-tiss-ment" when they are from GA. You're not British!!   My husband gets phrases wrong ALL THE TIME, but it's cute when he does it.

    [i]Mind-bottling is from that Will Ferrell movie, Blades of Glory with Jon Heder. [/i] Sadly I don't know that FI has ever seen that movie. At least that would explain things.

    My godmother says "fustrating," which I find very frustrating. Oh, and back when I had to take a medical terminology class, the instructor kept saying "congenial" instead of "congenital".  I constantly asked her about it, and she kept claiming she pronounced it differently due to regional differences.  Lady, we're from the same place, and the flipping 't' is NOT silent!!

    I did have a girl who was a year behind me in HS message me on FB shortly after we moved here to say "Wow, you're in Italy, huh? At least you're on the same continent as my husband!"He was in Iraq.

    In high school, my mother caught me fighting with my best guy friend in the back yard.  We were throwing punches and just generally being idiots. My mother yelled at us to stop and then announced:"It's all fun and games until someone loses a hymen."I almost peed myself laughing and she was serious.

    I also hate when people say "wind shield" instead of "wind chill." I don't even know where wind shield came from. It doesn't make sense.My windshield is on the front of my car, up near the top. It's clear so I can see through it to drive.

    Yeah, my current boss says "irregardless."  People say "cut and dry" a lot, but it's really "cut and dried."  I thought it was the "dry" too until I saw it written somewhere.

    My grandma can't pronounce certain words.  It's the "valcum" cleaner, and the "Bill Crosby" show.  And she always calls them "cellamaphones".Noodle pronounces double T sounds as double D sounds.  So "buttons" becomes "buddons", and "Daytons" becomes "Daydons".
