Also can I just say something to the eejits who tend to react with a condescending “har har har that person mispronounced Word X, what a dumb shit” attitude towards mispronunciations…can you just shut the fuck up for a moment and think about why that person didn’t pronounce it correctly? Here are some plausible reasons:
1) they have a different accent (!!)
2) they didn’t have a teacher patient enough to “show them the way” thus made the effort to teach themselves and brave the attempt – this is something you should commend them on, not shame them for.
3) their lexicon, i.e. body of information is different to yours….no individual holds the key to all doors of perception and knowledge.
“Words, I think, are such unpredictable creatures.
No gun, no sword, no army or king will ever be more powerful than a sentence. Swords may cut and kill, but words will stab and stay, burying themselves in our bones to become corpses we carry into the future, all the time digging and failing to rip their skeletons from our flesh.”—Tahereh Mafi, Ignite Me (via sad-plath)
Kids are a never-ending source of joy – if not for their boundless energy and joy, then for the hilarious and obliviously inappropriate things that they say and do. These 22 images are hilarious because of the fact that the kids probably have no idea just how raunchy they’re being.
