Wet Stuff

In the past few hours I’ve discovered some poor writing skills in “mainstream” media. First it was this review of the Beautiful Losers show in the OC Weekly where “vagina” and “skater boy” were used rampantly and now I find this when looking at ABC News for the scoop on the weather:

…The wet stuff began falling in the Los Angeles area about 1:20 p.m.

I’m including the screen shot image to prove that they did say “wet stuff” (which I do I believe is actually called rain) because as soon as I went to link it, they already changed it to this. Maybe someone was paying attention after all – maybe Hal Fishman. Oh wait, that’s K-CAL.

  1. This makes me think of one of the strangest conversations I’ve ever overheard.

    Girl 1: “Oh, look, it’s starting to rain.”

    Girl 2 (not joking, as far as I could tell): “No, it’s not. It’s just water falling from the sky.”

    Maybe for some people, there’s a difference between “wet stuff” and rain?
