    Can I get a personal reference to why this word needed its own blog entry? Let us (the readers) in to your world and give us some better context, which will intern allow us to be empathetic to your plight which would cause you to sully such a pretty mouth with such a dirty phrase.

    ZUT ALOURS!

      Pardon the typo. That should be “in turn” and not what Bill Clinton likes to do in his free time…..

      ZUT ALOURS!!!

      IN-CRAY-AB-LAY!!!!!

    Tyler always spells it damnit. I spell it dammit. And for 5 years I’ve been meaning to look up who was right. LONGER BLOG ON IT’S WAY. But not about words. About zombies.

        I to have always spelled it “damnit”, now of course this will be misconstrued as my always siding with Tyler and trying to curry amorous favor with Mazzie Sharp.

    The dictionary is stupid, and wrong. Damn + it = Damnit. Why would you arbitrarily change the n to a second m? Ludicrous.
