Man Uses The Word ‘Literally’ Correctly

Search for the worst word in the English language

Andy Goldfarb, age 31, of Taos, New Mexico, accidentally used the word “literally” correctly in a sentence over the holiday season, thereby marking the first time that the word had been used correctly in America in more than twelve years.
Mr. Goldfarb had just finished unwrapping a present from his Christmas stocking when the event took place. The stocking-stuffer gift in question was a “joke” gift: a lump of coal, with a tag saying “Guess who’s been naughty this year.”


“Hey!” Mr. Goldfarb said. “This is literally a chuck of coal!”

    I’m actually surprised there are no comments here (unless this is one of those weird rando-pick-content sites)! I would just like to say that I have mental relationships (read mental in any way necessary…) way too often. It is, actually, quite sad. That being said, thanks for the advice, I think you’re way hilarious :)
