Are You a Word Criminal?

Postby Slava » Sat Sep 20, 2014 6:59 pm

Another fun post on how not to use words, this one from the Guardian: http://www.theguardian.com/media/mind-y ... ntence-you

I do like the being sentenced as a word criminal idea. It works well.

It may not be word crime, but one fun play on words I saw, in Russian, but it works in English, was the name of a kiosk that sold pest killers - The Last Supper.
