Irrespective and regardless

Earlier today, sitting in the kitchen, talking with Jessica, I heard myself use the word "irregardless" in conversation.


Despite what some might say, "irregardless" is not a word.

I need to watch what I say from now on.

Bar room fall and the pork chop shoes

The first sentence of this news story is just plain weird.

"A man who broke his arm when he slipped on a bar floor made greasy by a drinker wearing pork chops taped to his feet has won £23,000 compensation."

All is explained in the course of the article but it’s still just plain weird.
