usually for totally irrelevant reasons should be punced in the face repeatedly.

Giggled like a schoolgirl.
striking down mildly irritating things people do?

'Ugh! That's ram!'

I can forgive anything.
most of the time they mean "arbitrary", though I perhaps overuse arbitrary. People who misuse "literally" as well really annoy me. I saw Jo Whiley on TV the other day saying that "this song literally punches you in the chest". Does it Jo, does it fucking really?
but it was a Girls Aloud song, so the punce didn't hurt.
They lead to fantastic imagery. I occasionally misuse it on purpose to see if anyone comments. They don't.
i always comment on people who misuse that, i think the last time was someone who said a friend's 'face was literally falling off his head', awesome.
My friend said "I literally, physically, completely couldn't move!". I commented. Didn't scream though.
But physically is not emphatic, dammit!
Or just bearable. I couldn't move would suffice. I believe you, stop emphasising!
