From Terry Teachout comes this quick Pet Peeves Meme:

Grammatical pet peeve. Their name is Legion. At the moment, however, I'm particularly sensitive to the increased misuse of "number" and "amount", about which I was ranting over at Kathy's just the other day.

Household pet peeve. "You girls! Flush! The Damn! Potty!"

Arts and entertainment pet peeve. Isn't that really what this blog is mostly about?

Liturgical pet peeve. Episcopalians singing trying to sing spirituals. It's preposterous. "Let My People Go?" Are you kidding me?

Wild card. People who run for the Metro. Another train will be along in a minute or two. And you're not that important. Besides, you look ridiculous, like big-butted lemmings.

Oh my! The big-butted lemmings caused an inordinately large amount of hot soup to go up my nose, thank you so much. :) Of course, that's the most accurate description I've ever heard.

It just kills me when people use "your" when they should have used "you're."
