I always laugh when I see people who use the wrong word in a common phrase or think that it's made up of other words than it actually is. Seriously, so blessed! is great at using these, but lately I've just seen a bunch in my daily interactions with people that I know and thought it might be fun to catalog some of the ones that I come across. So today, I bring you the first in a series of "Laughing at Illiteracy". I was looking at some Facebook photos today and saw a picture of someone's hand with two fingers up in the peace sign. One of the comments said, "Haha! Special Shout out to JewBug for re and acting the Thing for us! lol" I had to read it twice to realize that this person thought that reenacting was actually made up of three words: "re and acting". Ah, illiteracy.
Update: Not quite as funny, but another comment on this same photo said, "It's 'Thing' from 'Adam's Family!'" Who is this Adam guy?
