English as an unbearable language.

A flyer was just posted on a door at my place of work. Said flyer advertised an upcoming Webinar, which resulted in English suffering another completely humiliating defeat.

In case you haven't been paying attention, English is losing a far-reaching, lengthy battle against marketers, presidents and other morons. You don't believe it? Take, for example...
  • snail mail
  • guesstimate
  • Must-See TV
  • scrapbooking
  • deplane
  • Ground Zero
  • 24/7
  • irregardless
  • blog
And now, lest we forget...
  • Webinar, as in, Please come down to the third-floor conference room for a Webinar regarding your lack of medical insurance. (Though, seriously, if it's some kind of new alcoholic beverage, let me know ASAP so I don't miss it.)
