Wit and Wisdom for a One Party State

A handbook for government by wishful thinking

Friday, August 12, 2005

Countless, adj. A number that, being higher than the author reckons the reader is able to count, naturally invites hysterical calumny and gives rise to a general sense of exasperation.

Because accuracy is of utmost importance in the preparation of a standard reference work of this kind, I have undertaken a survey to confirm that the unlikely word "countless" is in actual use in modern discourse. I am happy to confirm that this is in fact the case. A search of four randomly selected websites produced the following results:

littlegreenfootballs.com (3,420)
rushlimbaugh.com (213 hits)
michaelmoore.com (139 hits)
digbysblog.blogspot.com (8 hits)

On behalf of the entire staff here at Wit and Wisdom for a One Party State, I would like to take this opportunity to thank Charles Johnson and his friends for their countless contributions to the English language.
