A public service announcement came on, urging the usage of condoms. The announcer said, "Don't be laissez faire about using them."
My brother and I both erupted with laughter. I said, "Perhaps he doesn't know that the laissez faire system means not interfering; obviously he shouldn't be telling people what to do."
My brother, as usual, topped me by saying, "He's just concerned with the ECONOMICS; he wants FREE MARKET condoms!"
I asked, "What can you expect from a station that misuses the word ICONIC?"
Read my old BLOG article titled IRONIC/MORONIC about the misuse of the word ICON:
I nearly screak every time I hear an UN-ICONIC object, person, or thing described as ICONIC.
