So I’m Probably As Guilty But What The Hell

Via Jeremy Keith’s Adactio blog (again!) one of my new favourite blogs, GrammarBlog—a feeling greatly enhanced because they took on one of my greatest dislikes, the phrase “could care less” (that should be “couldn’t care less), which is right up there with legos for me.

Thanks for checking out GrammarBlog. As you are from Gateshead, I thought you might like to know that our name was inspired by the annoying marketing habit of conjoining two words while maintaining capital letters in order to turn a “thing” into a “product”, as in NewcastleGateshead.

I had notice the numerous northern based references in GrammerBlog. And yes, NewcastleGateshead is annoying
