    I try not to get too worked up about stuff like this, but for some reason this one just crawls under my skin. I find myself saying things like "Paddles are for boats!" and "Oh, would you rather be kayaking?"

    I recognize that it is entirely possible that this is just me, but I feel the need to find out.

    Edit: I just searched Marco's for "Paddle", and most of what came back were diverter paddles, nothing associated with a flipper, so I don't think I'm completely wrong about my predicate assumption.

    Quoted from jwilson:

    I’m more irritated by “table”.

    Unfortunately, I feel I have to give up on this one. Mr. Townshend did us no favors here.

    "Even on my favorite game, he can beat my best" would have worked just fine, IMHO.
