Are you kidding me H&R Block? The tag-line for their new ad campaign is “you got people”! I might slaughter the English language from time to time. I don’t claim to have proper grammar in all of my writing, but at least I can say that I didn’t do it on purpose.
Who sat in a room when coming up with a campaign for H&R Block this tax season and decided that it would be a good idea to butcher the English language just because it was something that could be branded and trademarked? Was it something that they wanted others to talk about? Was this a “brilliant marketing ploy” as Leo Laporte might suggest.
I suppose you know you are getting old when these things bother you.
