#5 Plethora: I was complaining that we had a plethora of cats at our house and my nephew guffawed and asked if I knew what plethora really meant. I wasn't saying we had Many: I was saying we had WAY too many. I gave him the hairy eyeball and he swallowed hard and mumbled something like "oh, right, I guess you do." Grammar Cop Career squashed. SQUASHED!
 
Altho if you want to get really nitpicky, a plethora refers to stuff like bodily fluids and meant some quack was about to cut on you to get 'em out.  Maybe that's what he was getting at tho. 
 
And just because I'm careful, I checked the dictionary and it lists the "wrong" definition as being so prevalent that it must be considered a correct usage.

Here's a translation for you:

We may be a big-time national tile supplier, but we haven't considered it important to upgrade our computer systems from Windows 98, regardless what those over-caffeinated IT propeller-head geeks have to say.

Ok, I fixed the original post. Where did all that code crap come from? All I did was copy and paste from Outlook v.2007. {#Crashcomp}

I can't even figure out where you would make sense of it with a comma.
