Malapropisms and the Media.

Being concerned for the priestess’s welfare, I typed ‘Sydney tycoon’ into Google.

Whoops. Rewind…

‘Sydney typhoon.’

What surprised me was that most news reports called it a tornado. Tornadoes and typhoons are completely different phenomena, so which is it?  The media are really crap, aren’t they? Bastions of slackness and ignorance.

Fortunately, both typhoons and tornadoes are rather less destructive than Rupert Murdoch, who controls large swathes of the media. I hope his Rolls was going backwards.
