Words mean things. As editors we know this – reading a free newspaper yesterday I was actually annoyed by a restaurant review which stated that when Dorothy said, “There’s no place like home,” they were SURE she meant a restaurant in the San Fernando Valley named “Home.” Really? You’re sure of that? Not a moment of doubt that Judy Garland had that specific motivation when she uttered the line on camera?
But sometimes we lose. “Literally” doesn’t entirely mean what it used to…and CollegeHumor is very angry about that, it seems. Behold “The Boy Who Cried ‘Literally.'”
Sorry, guys. The dictionary says we lose this one. The late Gorilla Monsoon looks down from Heaven and approves.
