    Gus also loves saying team X "are on tilt here" when one team has defended 3 or 4 sets in a row...

    And all commentators love, absolutely LOVE, the phrase "they're out on their feet here"....

    Some more film related shit....

    "Shot on location" - where else would it be shot? In an alternate universe?

    "Fast tracked from the US" - we could watch the same TV show at the same time as the US with all the technology available now.

    Filming can take place in a studio, rather than on location.

    Another favorite is "World Premier" when referring to a shitty local TV show airing for the first time.

    So are we in agreeance?

    Arrrrrrgghh f**k.

    The word agreeance went out of use in the 18th Century - there is no need to bring it back to life
    We don't feel the need to use doth and verily, so why agreeance?

    Is it because you're a f**king twat and don't remember how to pronounce AGREEMENT?

    I see this and raise you 'formulise' - the merging of formalise & formula.
    This beauty was first brought to my attention by the state manager from my previous job at our annual team launch. He was fired within 3 months of this presentation.

    on premise

    This does not mean on premises. Premises is not a plural

    George Carlin (above) mentions one of my favourites. The concept of "sour grapes". This term is often used incorrectly on LU by those not familiar with the original fable.

    Americanisation of the English language.

    Replacing "s" with "z" so that the first word of this post becomes "americanization". There's a valid reason why "z" is tucked down at the bottom left hand corner of the keyboard with its lonely mate "x". Don't touch it unless the word begins with "z" in most cases.

    Same could be said for replacing "c" with "s" so that "offence" becomes "offense".

    Pronounciation of certain words to place emphasis on one part of the word. E.g. defence (or defense) is pronounced DEE-fence and semi becomes SEE-my. See my what?
