Throw Mama from the train a kiss …

Filed under: Language — furtherglory @ 12:30 pm

What is wrong with this recent newspaper headline:

Gwyneth Paltrow says Brad Pitt threatened to kill Harvey Weinstein after he allegedly sexually harassed her

Who allegedly sexually harassed whom? Did Brad Pitt allegedly sexually harass Gyneth Paltrow? After he threatened to kill Harvey Weinstein?

The title of my blog post is an old expression that was formerly used to teach students how to write and to speak properly. The title is incorrect. It should read “Throw a kiss to Mama from the train.”

  1. Pitt was probably high when he said that. Empty bravado if I’m asked…

    Funny to see how the words “alleged” and “allegedly” are intensively used when the perpetrator …er alleged perpetrator… of a crime (or of many crimes) is a Chosenite. 😉
