Following on from my recent post on how stupid Americans are, and why the world laughs at them, I thought I’d mention something that’s been bugging me for a while.
It all started when I was editing an article submitted by someone who was, shall we say, American focused. They mentioned the season ‘Autumn’, though referred to it as ‘The Fall’. The fall, as we all know, is an American term (yes, I know it originated in England but we ditched in favour of a proper name). However this article writer, while not being from America, was so enchanted with Uncle Sam that he kept slipping Americanisms (or as I call them, Twatisms) into his work.
Now, why in the name of all that is glazed in sugar do the Yanks insist on calling a season after the most obvious thing that happens at that time of year? Is it because ‘Autumn’ is too hard for them to understand, learn and spell? Perhaps. Why then don’t they take it further and rename the other seasons?
They could have The Fall, The Sunny Bit. The Snow and… the other one.
Wouldn’t this be simpler for their tiny, rather simplistic minds?
We’ll wait and see if they adopt this new naming convention.
