No, actually, it’s “Pathetically Pathologically Eclectic Rubbish Lister.”

Although after your rant, it will probably have to become known as “Perverted English, Ruined Language.”

    Agh! Speaking of Perverted and Ruined, why do people insist on tranmogrifying "Pathologically" into "Pathetically"? Some deep linguistic reason, no doubt--there's probably a PHD waiting for whoever figures it out... :-)

      Agh! I can’t believe I did that, nor do I know why. I suppose I miss my opportunity at a PhD then. But I want to at least know what I missed – would that be a PhD in psychology or one in linguistics?
