EVOO.. it rocks

But saying 'extra virgin olive oil' isn't all that hard. First world problems people.

I got into it with someone about this just today. I got about halfway into my explanation of the prefix ir- and the suffix -less having the same connotation and being redundant when used in the same word before I realized that I was speaking to a stupid person.

My wife and I used to get annoyed by Rachel Ray's insistence on saying 'EVOO' for extra virgin olive oil. I mean, really, just say olive oil.
Ah, but only EVOO is actually worthy of being used. There are plenty of other olive oils out there, some with very little actual olive oil in them. So when you use the good stuff (EVOO) you need to announce it to all present.

By the way, the ONLY olive oil I'll use is the extra virgin. Standard virgins just can't handle me. They need to be EXTRA virgins. I also use it in almost everything I cook. It's that or buttah. Only things I don't use either of those in are things like brownies where the flavor of great olive oil just doesn't make sense.

Most of us are pretty stupid. Irregardless off what you think.

It has been three years since I read How to Brew and I'm just starting today, FML. But I like this forum and I'll have some homebrew'd brew in a few weeks, FTW.

How long were you talking before you realized you might as well have been talking to a stone wall??

Of course Dan, these are just petty annoyances that I find amusing.

I just timed myself saying EVOO and extra virgin olive oil and it turns out that it takes about a half a second longer to prevent people from scratching their heads. Of course, you could say it once and then just say oil since everyone knows what you mean at that point.

She also substitutes sandwich with 'sammy' and uses the expression 'yum-o'. I could go on but I'll spare you.

So what? Why with all the problems in life would we be worried about expressions? I'm not preaching, just wondering. I understand this thread is lighthearted and I shouldn't take it out of context.

There's just so much other stuff to get upset about, how people speak is not one of them.


I'm a hypocritical a$$ by the way.
