Title: Ian and "We" did this or "we" did that . . .

I just heard him mentioning again how inaccurate the "we" thing is and I agree totally.

I've gotten away from it in recent years, and I always use the word "Washington," instead of the longer, clumsier, "U.S. government."

When you say "Washington," any English-speaking person in the world likely knows who -- and what -- you are referring to.

What if they mistakenly think you're talking about George Washington? or Denzel Washington?

If they're that stupid, then they deserve to die! (http://i175.photobucket.com/albums/w121/branlin2007/machinegun.gif)

The royal We is presumptuous, and very rarely appropriate.

If there is a mushroom cloud blooming on the horizon, you may use it, in conjunction with the word "fucked".

I think WE can agree on that.

Yes, or like when sniffing around some hot, red-headed, radio show co-host, I might ask "Are WE ready to get naked?" (http://i175.photobucket.com/albums/w121/branlin2007/branlin%20current/rubcunt.gif) (http://img32.imageshack.us/img32/5858/jerkingsmiley.gif)

Now Mark & Ian (& all the rest who do not think wise the use of "we") should work on their use of "they".
