Tongue ~~ A "Grammar Nazi" Mini-Post

Okay, fellow babies, fill in the missing letters:

The woman in the above photo is sticking out her t o _ _ _ e.

If you said "n," "g," and "u," in that order, you're right!

If you said "u," "n," and "g," in that order, you should be ashamed of yourself!

Why, oh why, do so many people spell "tongue" as "tounge?!?"

I just had to get that out of my system. I've seen it a lot lately.

Thanks for your time.

P.S. ~~ Coming Soon: Another tribute post with multiple dead celebrities! You've been warned.


  1. I am happy to report I spelled tongue correctly.

    1. Congratulations. Somehow, I think all of my readers would.

  2. Alas, I am guilty of being rather hypocritical about the subject. For I have become very irritated over someone correcting my grammar when I did not see anything wrong with what I was trying to say while becoming even more irritated over reading/hearing people say things like, I could care less," instead of, "I could NOT care less," using your instead of you're and till instead of 'til. Sigh.

    1. Back in my high school days, I had the irritating habit of correcting everybody. Now I only do it on an occasional "Grammar Nazi" blog post

    2. Yeah, nobody likes a KnowItAll. Well, at least that is what I have heard--not told. Sigh.

  3. I've never had a problem with that one.
