  1. This is one of my favorite videos. I have to say that I came across several of these “filth-filters” myself while doing research. There was one shopping site that listed anything having a “circumference” measurement as having a “cirSEMENference” yes, the capitals are directly from the site in question. It did make me do a double and then a triple take as I thought that cirSEMENference was WAY WORSE than circumference. I wondered aloud when this senseless abuse of the English language was going to stop. Fortunately, I have not come across any of those filters lately and am quite glad. I did see one commenter who stated simply that the programmers were not quick witted enough, in fact, they were half-fast. (say it aloud).

  2. Oh my odgay (or is that my odhomosexual)! Cracked me up laughing too 🙂 even after all these years. Now I’m going to have to go through all the videos. :p
