Quote of the day

by Volker Weber

I heard about a woman giving birth on a pavement on the side of the street. It's amazing what people do to stay alive.
—Female (!) reporter on CNN


LOL! All those people in need, hungry, tired! That is so funny that a reporter, watching a horrified woman giving birth on a road overpass, make a grammar mistake... bawahaha! what American Idiots!

"What American Idiots" - you or the reporter, Justin?
I had to smile at this quote.

Maybe cutting back on sex education was not a terribly good idea.

I've never heard an American refer to a "paveway." And Justin, I've never quite seen grammar like yours -- British, or American.

Eric, that should have been pavement? What bothers me more: Is there really nobody out there that understands the irony of what has been reported?
