English manglage: Would you like some fries with your McSand?

English manglage: Would you like some fries with your McSand?

Not every new item McDonald's has rolled out in its long and storied history has been a winner. Something tells me this will take its place next to the McDLT, McPizza, and the McLean Deluxe. Now I know why I never liked the McFlurry. Sure it's cold and creamy, but it's got that certain grit I just don't need in a chilled treat.

I think this is the first time an episode description from a DVR has broken the fourth wall.  The paint fumes in question for this episode of Yes, Dear on TBS seem to have actually affected the writer of this little gem. It starts off well enough, but right around the third line it starts to jump the tracks.  By line six it's clear someone is breathing dangerous fumes, and it ain't Kim or Greg.

I can only imagine that the only thing worse than being hit in the eyes by the venom of a spitting cobra would be being hit in the eyes by the venom of a spitting cobra and then having to try to edit an article about said cobra.  That's the only explanation I can think of for the gaffes in this recent article from Yahoo!  (courtesy LiveScience.com): Man that's gotta suck.  Not only does the cobra nail you with some venom but it shouts at you too.  "HAVE A FACEFUL OF THIS, JERKOFF!!!#!@  WOOO!$!!@#"
