“Enquiring minds need to know™”
I had to look that up because I’m never sure if its “enquiring” or “inquiring” – Well, it turns out it’s Enquiring (but it probably should be inquiring) and it turns out its Trademarked. Pbbbbfffftt to you National Enquirer, and the trademark you rode in on. Your trademark has become a generally accepted, albeit grammatically incorrect, phrase like Kleenex, Aspirin and Xerox, not to mention Tupperware, Band-aid, Scotch tape, Styrofoam and Sharpie – Although, I’m holding Sharpie by its fingertips as it’s about to fall over the precipice. To me, Sharpie means “A Sharpie marker” and nothing else will do. I’m sure there was a time when people only reached for a Kleenex.
Anyway, I was looking because more than a few grammar nerds follow this blog, not to mention my lovely editor, and they all would be happy to point out an error. Thank…
