  1. The Shield - The Wallflower Collection

    As infovore describes it: “A spreadsheet cataloguing all of “wallflower“‘s episode-by-episode guide to The Shield - his writing on it is so, so good.”

    @wonderlandblog Have you watched ‘The Shield’? Good, tense.

    @tomcoates Indeed. I was patient.

    @benburry @iamseb I’ve never noticed that being weird. Fetch me an American! Is it different to how Estuary/Essex type accents drop the t’s?

    @pkqk I saw it written that way (again) this morning. I assume these people have never read anything and hear it as “ut-oh”. Idiots.

    @mildlydiverting *squeeze*

    Still wrong to add the ’t’ into written ‘uh-oh’, but maybe culprits only deserve lengthy re-education rather than anything more drastic.

    Re “ut-oh”, @iamseb points me at en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Glottal_s… which mentions the glottal stop in “uh-oh” for American English and RP speakers.

    @iamseb Interesting, ta, makes some sense! Seems odd to me to add a ’t’ into the written spelling though.

    @beekernortham I see people write it a fair bit (e.g. .someone on a Slack channel just now) but no one *says* it, which is what’s weird.

  • philgyford’s avatar

    Is it “uh oh” or “ut oh”?
    Also, “oops” or “ops”?
    Obviously, the first is correct in each case ’cos I’m right, but why are the others common?

    @alruii @infovore @denisewilton I’m not a designer, but I can’t help thinking that “UBER WHITE” isn’t white. Maybe I’m old fashioned.
