FACEBOOK: Misused Adverbs

The words ‘randomly’ and ‘literally’ are two of the most grating adverbs in the English language by virtue of how frequently they are misused — even in print.

GET AN EFFING DICTIONARY. Ride a goddamned Alot over to the nearest Barnes & Noble if that’s what it takes, because I *personally guarantee* that the concepts you are struggling to convey will be listed under the respective forms ‘spontaneous’ and ‘figurative’.
