I was a upset last night at the Apple advertisement that showed up in my Facebook feed:
“Funnest” was the latest buzzword introduced by Steve Jobs at the Let’s Rock Apple event. Grammar Girl rushed to put out a show about the validity of the word “funnest” as criticisms raced across the internet.
Steve Jobs, I accept that you enjoy having “funnest” as a new word. I hope you used it because you liked it and not because it sounds hip. But I won’t excuse the missing article between with and that, nor will I accept “and take the Internet in their pocket.” I don’t know what marketing intern won the bet and wrote the ad but please send them back to 6th grade to be re-taught grammar.
