Pedantry Time!

If there are two things I love in this world it's pedantry and showing up Joe, so I'm combining the two by pointing out a mistake in the Chronicle! In the 'Random Facts to make your day!' section it was stated that no word in the English language rhymes with purple, orange, silver or month. COMMON MISCONCEPTION. 'Month' rhymes with 'Granth' as in the Guru Granth Sahib - the holy text of Sikhism. That's all for now, and if anyone else spots any slip-ups I would love to aid you in publicising them!

  1. Orange rhymes with Borange
    Borange: Tedious details, objects, tasks or concepts. Always plural. Reference to single items requires helpers as in "just a bit of borange", "a piece of borange", etc.

  2. Ottawa is actually the capital of Canada where it said in the quiz Toronto was.

  3. It's all coming out now! This is how to get people involved in the PC, ask them to criticise us!
