Newbie Steroid Users Can’t Spell “Steroid”
Colorado Springs, CO. In a disturbing development reported to be occurring at many internet discussion forums, novice steroids users are misspelling the word "steroid."
"It's not that you have to be a good speller to use steroids in a safe manner," said a moderator for the Testosterone drug forum, "but it's disturbing to think that some guys can't even spell the stuff they're putting into their bodies. I mean, you'd think they'd catch on to the proper spelling if they'd done enough research."
The usual misspelling causing the uproar, "steriod", has been spotted in numerous bodybuilding related chat rooms and forums. "I worry about the age and overall intelligence of the person posting if he misspells such easy words," says Tony Knotts, a frequent contributor to many internet discussion sites. "Are these guys smart enough to be self-medicating with steroids if they can't even spell the word? I see misspelling like that and I think 'dumb 14 year old on daddy's computer', you know?"
The controversy doesn't end with misspellings either. Grammatically correct forum members are also up in arms about the words "lose" and "loose" which they maintain are not interchangeable. "This isn't rocket science," says Bob Turner, forum user and grammar cop, "'Loose' is like something isn't tight. 'Lose' is the present tense of lost. Here's a sample sentence using both words correctly: I always lose bets I make with loose women in bars. Now, is that so fricking difficult? If I see someone wanting to 'loose weight' one more time I'll kill myself."
Citing freedom of expression, chronic misspellers, bad punctuators and run-on sentence users are standing up for their rights. "I can spel any fuckin way I want two," says Dave Peabody, a steroid novice who insisted we spell his statements this way, "It deosn?t reflect poorlly on my intelligance. This ain't english clas!"
"I just don't want the public to get the wrong impression of those who lift weights. We're not all meatheads who can't spell. Sure, we wear funny pants and sometimes shave our arms, but we're not stupid," said Knotts.
"Yea, well, skrew yu, budy! Speek for youself!" added Peabody ironically.
