WHAT I HATE TODAY: Your daily dose of negative energy (Super Bowl Edition!)

Today I hate it when people spell it "Superbowl." It's the "Super Bowl*," dammit -- you don't write "Rosebowl," or "Chickfilabowl," or "Worldseries," do you?

* Explanatory note for Canadian readers: The "Super Bowl" is the championship game of the National Football League, an organization that promotes exhibitions of professional American football -- a sport not unlike your "Australian Rules Football." What's that? Australia and Canada are different places? Forgive me, my mistake. I thought they were different names for the same country, like "Holland" and "The Netherlands." You have to admit it's pretty confusing when you all put Queen Victoria on your money.


  1. Queen Victoria on our money, good one. Queen Elizabeth II might be offended, mighten she? -- Christine

  2. I thought Freddy Mercury from Queen was on all their money.

  3. The difference is Australian money is waterproof.
