    vv @BobSacamano Two things: 1) it`s OK to agree with their `right to speak`, but still HOPE & PRAY that God "calls them to heaven" like, soon!
    And 2) there`s a lot worse than that here at IAB, I suggest you put some thicker skin on! lolz!

    Okay stonewar, I`ve got to know what 300-year-old example of this you`re citing. I`ve always figured misusing literally came about with sportscasters on ESPN. "He`s literally carried the whole team on his back, this season!" etc.

    It`s commonly used as hyperbole. How many friends do you think you`d make saying, "Do you realize you just suggested that you heard a joke that was so funny it caused a large urine stain to appear on your pants."? The Oatmeal is awesome and the gayroller looks way more fun than it should be, but move on people.
