Mighty Quinn (no relation to MRP) had this to say about the recent post about the redundant FedEx Express:
It’s rare that I can actually offer anything of note to your blog – even rarer that I can correct you. FedEx is the actual name of the company. . . . (For the record, I am leaving out the difference in Ground v. Express v. Air, etc., b/c there’s only so much trucker talk I am required to explain in a day.)
In short, the truck name on the blog isn’t actually redundant. It’s just you don’t want to accept their new proper name.
Mighty Quinn is right on one thing: well documented that MRP does not like to be wrong. However, in this case, MRP will stand by the assertion that even though FedEx is now the actual name of the company (which, for the record, I knew), FedEx is short for Federal Express, therefore FedEx Express is redundant.
They just sort of painted themselves into a corner there, didn’t they?
Sort of like what’s going to happen now that Total Request Live (TRL) is pretaping some of their episodes. Eventually, they will have to have a very special TRL Live. It’s just bound to happen.
In the meantime, I’m going to the ATM machine to use my PIN number to get some cash out.
