Let's Enlargen and Embiggen the Soul

SURFING the net I came across this little gem.

Enlargen? Seriously?

I think the writer has been watching too many episodes of The Simpsons. Written on the statue of Jebediah Springfield are the words: "A noble spirit embiggens the smallest man." When teacher Edna Krabappel questioned the word embiggen, fellow teacher Miss Hoover replied: "I don't know why; it's a perfectly cromulent word." Made me laugh.

Far too many people who write for the internet write in Simpsons-ese (see, I've made up another word!).

But as Ralph Wiggum said: "Me fail English? That's unpossible!"
