Increase Your Watercooler Power

Having seen the video we posted earlier, we're wondering if we haven't been aiming a tad high with this series.

Don't get us wrong. We're not anti-American. We're anti-ignorance. Studies in the UK have found that 8 out of 10 British citizens could not identify the British Isles on a map of the World.

Perhaps we should start by correcting a few common errors.

1 - The London Underground is not a terrorist organisation.

2 - Karl Marx was not one of Groucho's brothers.

3 - It is not alright to make new words by adding 'ability' or 'ise' onto perfectly good words.

4 - The Bermuda Triangle is not the area concealed by Bermuda Shorts.

5 - 'At the present time' means 'now'.

6 - A Freudian Slip, isn't an undergarment worn by the mother you loved so very much.

7 - That guy in West Wing isn't the real U.S. President. He's an actor - like Reagan.

8 - The term 'marital relations' does not refer to your parents in-law.

9 - Evolution is not a theory. It's happening right now - it's just missed a few of you.

10 - Chaos theory does not explain why your life is a mess.

We hope that helped.

If we've left you confused, we're sorry.
Come back tomorrow for more enlightenment or even better, subscribe to our excellent feed from Feedburner.

If you're not confused, it just means you haven't noticed what's going on in the World.

If this is still too much, we'll try and find you a video of a fat guinea pig skateboarding.

Until that happy day,
Here to help you help yourself.

Really disappointed to hear about the Bermuda Triangle. Are you sure about this?

P.S. Reagan wasn't a very good actor either.
