You said what?


My friend was leaving work the other day and relayed this to me.

Two women were speaking as she past. The only phrase she caught was “Well, you know a leper can’t shed it’s spots.”

Buzzawhat?! Actually a leper can shed all sorts of stuff including spots and skin and a toe or finger, but a “leopard can’t change his spots.” We had the biggest laugh over this in a sick, sad sort of way.

Please know your analogies before you spout them off in public. The walls have ears and now eyes. This reminds me of Lewis Black’s bit about phrases that get stuck in your head and cause a cerebral aneurysm, “If it weren’t for my horse, I never would have gotten into college.” Buzzahubba?!

Watch your words. At least engage your brain in the conversation.

  1. I believe that should be, “If it weren’t for my horse, I never would’ve spent that year in college.”

  2. When did you become a bigger nerd than your dad, Jenn? I stand corrected on pop-culture trivial pursuit. Gaaah!

  3. Oh funny.

    My hubby laughs at me ’cause I thought the expression was “my bag” instead of “my bad”.
