Fun With Americanisms

On the bus, there were a lot of school kids. And one of them had a copy of Cosmopolitan.

Let's not talk about why a girl, all of twelve, had a magazine famous for its sex-tips. That's a different rant.

What cracked me up was that this "Denim Issue" proudly proclaimed its article on:

"Jeans to make your ass look awesome."

That's right, ladies! With the right pair of hipsters, the donkey (or even mule) in your life can be truly inspiring of awe and admiration!

The word has a LONG A!!! A LONG A... Everyone, open your mouth wide, and say "Aaaah".

How the hell does that become A-S-S? I'm cool with Americans spelling it that way, because they pronounce it that way. Whatever they want, it's fine.

But if it's got a long A, bloody well spell it that way! A-R-S-E!

You hear me?

*whaps the editors of Cosmo*

Oh Kayt! I am forever shouting at people when they spell it as Ass instead of Arse. Sorry guys, but an ass is a donkey and an arse is a bottom. End of story.

And yes... wtf is she doing with Cosmo!? We read Dolly and Girlfriend at those ages and didn't move to Cosmo till 17 or 18 I think, but 12? *sigh*
