How To Speak English

This is a couple of weeks old, but as linguistic prescription seems to be the theme of the day, we might as well go with it: British comedian (and recent mugging victim) David Mitchell provides some instruction of proper usage. (If you are unfamiliar with Mitchell, he is one of the most interesting comedians working today. Co-star of the popular British sitcom “Peep Show” with his comedy partner Robert Webb, he is also responsible for “That Mitchell and Webb Look,” which can be seen on BBC America. I’m including my favorite skit from the show below as a bonus.) If you enjoy this, here’s the channel for “David Mitchell’s Soap Box.” [Via]
