Wednesdays' Weirdos: Etymologists

Wed-nes-day. What a stupid word. And Colonial. Also stupid.

Who decided to give in to these stupid spellings?
Blah, blah, blah French people. Blah, blah, blah people in the dark ages writing with charcoal in the dust with their little finger nubbins. Blah, blah, blah. Muthaspellas! This week's Wednesday's Weirdo: Etymologists.

Its Whensday and Kernal. And I might have to even change it to Whensdays' Weirdos.

Take that, you stupid word freaks.

I first read etymologist as entomologists and thought they ARE weird for studying bugs. Then I thought about enterologist and THAT'S pretty weird too. And for some reason the intestine docs make me think of otolaryngologist and the ENT docs bring me to ontologist ('cause it's shorter and easier to spell) who could be puzzled by the whole damn circuitous route to actually *getting* that you were ranting about the spelling of words. How about winds day? I'll quit before I end up on your blog as a weirdo. :)

I'm listening to a conversation in the next cube over, and it sounds like somebody thinks that someone changed it to Lie Berry.

I know more about summer programs at the Lie Berry than any girl ever should.
