    Why the **** use of "would of" instead of "would have" these days gaining popularity?

    Because it sounds like "would've" and teenagers are too ****ing stupid to tell the difference.

    just like the abomination that is "I brang"

    What's with "We're versing so-and-so on the weekend"? Really ****s me to tears. Are you sitting down writing poetry with the other team or something? It's an expression I had never heard until about 5-10 years ago, and it's used widely these days.

    Mixing up "then" and "than" does it for me. I find it ****ing ridiculous.
