Bonus MRP moments

  • What’s the most embarrassing typo you can make from “herniated disk”? Yeah, that happened (via Bill Walsh).
  • Check out the American Dialect Society’s 2011 Word of the Year nominees, in such categories as “Most Creative,” “Most Unnecessary,” and “Most Euphemistic.” I’m sure it’s not giving anything away to reveal that occupy took the top honors, although I was kind of partial to kardash and mellencamp.
