old-timey comedy: adventures in english II

Some guy was on Diane Rehm the other day talking about Charlie Chaplin, and a fellow called in to argue that Buster Keaton was a superior comedian, so already you know he's a special kind of dork, and then, in his refutation of the guest's argument, the caller used the non-word "irregardless." FAIL. What a lonely Venn diagram that must be, the people who will argue on the merits of Buster Keaton vs. Charlie Chaplin, and yet employ "irregardless."

I heard that too! Buster who? Irregardlesslinessification!

I just have to tell you that my word verification in order to leave my comment is "untion." Sometimes I think these should be real words and we should have a contest to define them.
