Which is worse: the people who can’t write, or those who don’t know the difference?*
Thanks to the DVR, I literally did a double-take last night when I overheard this TV commercial. One feature of the product they extol is:
“The wholeness of cherry tomatoes.”
Given the setting and the product, I’d bet you that someone meant “wholesomeness”.
I’m pretty sure they didn’t mean “holeness” (if that’s even a word).
And I really don’t think they meant “wholeness” at all, since the tomatoes are clearly sliced.
Overall, this seems like we’re one step closer to the characters in Idiocracy.
