That way of writing a headline where it goes:

The adjective noun of subject

as in, The Eternal Lightness of Being,

but it's just some bullshit 500 word thinkpiece:

The genre-defying radicalism of the new Camilla Cabello single

The soaring emotional peaks of buying a packet of polo mints.

The life-affirming joy of watching the Late Late Toy Show.

The stunning emotional climax of this epic Trump clapback.



You can probably add "is everything" to the end of all of them, but I think we already moaned about that one

"Roadside assist" - I don't even drive, and this drives me mad every time I hear it on an ad - surely it should be "roadside assistance"?!? victormeldrew.jpg

Not a phrase but I a FB friend, with a PHD mind, who likes to bait people with political stuff.

He uses several exclamation marks in every post. Not like "!!!!!", he just exclaims a lot.

Then he puts a space between the last word of his exclamation and the exclamation mark. Like This !

Then he puts a full stop after the exclamation mark. Like This !.

Every time. Marks for sticking to your style book I suppose, but it's wrong !.

For shits and giggles, if I could I'd review every bands' "sophomore album" as their "penultimate album".
