Being simultaneously comical and tragic, perhaps nothing reflects our descent into Idiocracy more than millennials wholl insist their misspellings of words are correct. Just yesterday I read an eyebrow-raising story about this that was quite timely, as Id experienced millennial spelling moronity just the day prior.
My case involved a leftist who emailed me with some deep, substantive criticism: He said I was insane, nuttier than a fruitcake and f*****g nuts. I responded to him. While I generally dont play the spelling Nazi, leftists characteristic superciliousness inspired me to mention to him, kindly, that hed written youre as your three times in six sentences. His response?
I am under 40, he wrote. Your vs youre is interchangeable.
But on to the far more interesting and dramatic story I mentioned earlier. According to The Fellowship of the Minds (FOTM) blog, its from a series of July tweets by a Georgetown University adjunct professor of public relations and journalism named Carol Blymire; it relates something shed witnessed. As the blog presents it:
In office space near a client, a young woman was meeting with her boss. She was (by my estimation) in her late 20s.
The boss (also a woman) was giving her feedback and reviewing edits she had made on something this young woman wrote.
They had been speaking in low tones, but their volume got louder toward the end of the conversation because the young woman was getting agitated about a particular edit.
That particular edit was correcting the spelling of hampster to hamster. [sic] Apparently she had used the phrase like spinning in a hamster wheel in this draft (presumably) speech or op-ed.

Cripes - talk about very old news.
Millennials feel that they can do whatever they want. Their motto is “Live free or die”, which is also the motto of the state of New Hampster.
Their motto is Live free or die
= = =
‘Live free’ has morphed into EBT cards, welfare, etc.
But they don’t want the ‘or die’ part.
Unless they mean
I live free or you die.
As a Society, we have done a terrible disservice to ‘Da Yutes’ of today! ;)
Yep, this is old dirty laundry. Throw it in the clothes hampster.
I remember Kris Kristofferson “hampster diving” for his cleanest dirty shirt. Sunday Morning Coming Down.
Kristofferson could spell and write great songs but he couldn’t sing worth a damn.
I found your hamster in the hamper. You’re going to love what it did to your laundry.
This thing reads a bit too well.
Has anyone actually confirmed that this was real?

Remember in The Wire when all the learned drug runners were so happy to get their own area to sell their wares free of police patrols in Hampsterdam? One of the best scenes in the series.
I’m glad she just spelled it with a p. I was afraid she might have out of habit put an x in front of it.
