Public service announcement

August 15th, 2010

I overheard someone saying the “coupe de grass” recently. At the extreme risk of appearing scornfully arrogant, I thought I would offer up some clarification which, at the very least, would have benefitted me at times in the past:

  • Coup de gras == “coo-de-gra” && !”coupe-de-grass”
  • For all intents and purposes != “For all intensive purposes”
  • Dog eat dog world != “Doggy-dog world”
  • I couldn’t care less != “I could care less”
  • Peruse == To go over something in great detail.
