    I thought you’d made a cute pun and were linking to a piece on the garment industry. It’s “s-o-w”. 🙂

    What’s surprising about this to me is that Gonzo’s DOJ – part of it at least – was so aggressively investigating a powerful GOP Senator. I assume that either Al didn’t know about it or he forgot it was going on.

    I’ve been known to rip what I sew (am not exactly a wizard with a needle and thread).

  3. I thought it was sow, had it spelled that way, then decided it looked wrong, Googled it and found multiple instances of other illiterates using sew in that context. Damn you Google!

    Al has three words… “I don’t recall.”

  4. Ok, editorial question then. Do I change the mistake, put a strike through in and make it six words, or ignore and move on?

    Michael: Well, it’s a Biblical quote and English-language Bibles have had “sow” for about 500 years, give or take. Also, standard English dictionaries do not identify “sew” as an agricultural term, which “sow” has been for, oh, 1000 years or so. *groan* (I’ll do it first.) My guess is that Google got it wrong. It may not, contrary to popular belief, be the Final Word in words.

    Just a thought.

    Just change the “e” to an “o”. Nobody but me cares anyway.

  7. For anyone other than Mick that might care, this post has now been changed to reflect the obvious. 😉

  8. You reap what you female pig?

    This is why English is such fun. It makes no sense.

  10. Yes, a language that doesn’t even follow its own rules. No room for confusion there.
