Words Matter 2012-Day 3 Blog Challenge

Here’s the blog challenge question for Wednesday, March 7, 2012.
Words are, of course, the most powerful drug used by mankind. Rudyard Kipling for Words Matter Week 2012

Communication breaks down when words are misused.  What is the funniest or worst breakdown you’ve ever observed?

Background: In honor of
Words Matter Week, a holiday
that is celebrated annually the
first full week in March, the
National Association of
Independent Writers and Editors (NAIWE) is hosting a Blog Challenge with a specific daily topic Monday through Friday.

Each blogger who posts responses to all five questions will be entered into a random drawing for a $25 gift card from Amazon (nothing better than books for a word-lover!). The winner will be announced in the next issue of The Edge, NAIWE’s e-mail newsletter (if you don’t receive it yet, you may subscribe at NAIWE.com.

When you compose your challenge post, remember to write it on your own blog, and include a link to the post with the specific question. When you publish your post, come back to this site and leave the title of your blog response and a link to your blog in the comments section of the post you are answering. As always, we look forward to reading your responses.

 Speak clearly, if you speak at all; carve every word before you let it fall.

Oliver Wendell Holmes
