  1. Worser.

    Same thing, the Better Half was using it, I said it’s not a proper word. Even now, as I’m typing, the spell checker is agreeing with me. Check the Webster dictionary and it’s there. Archaic English, but it’s there. Complete with a quote from Shakespeare.


  2. “Nice holiday but the place was very touristic.”

    Laughed my ass off at the time, then got hit on the head with the dictionary.
