Twitter user Stephen Molloy recently had some concerns about the English language, and who better to consult than Merriam-Webster? The dictionary's social media team is well known for burning President Donald Trump whenever he makes a spelling mistake. Molloy's concern? It's all about the word "toothpaste."
No, it shouldn't be "teethpaste," Stephen. That's stupid and you deserve to be blocked.
The problem? Merriam-Webster didn't block Molloy for his question. And after seeing his tweet go viral, they decided to call him out on it...
Forgery! We'd never block anyone for asking questions about English. No matter how inane the question might be.— Merriam-Webster (@MerriamWebster) June 6, 2017
Notice the tabs that they had open on that screenshot? Because these users did.
That's got to sting.
In a very subtle way, they have the definitions of "haha" and "owned" on the bookmarks bar.. Touche! 😂😂— Naam M Kya Rakha Hai (@HaoBePakaMat) June 6, 2017
Merriam-Webster's social media team saw the Wendy's team and raised them $500 with this subtlety— Kyle Maycock (@ochodabomyo) June 7, 2017
We love you, Merriam-Webster.
