Are You Using The Word ‘Literally’ Wrong? There Are Consequences.

Inspired by the fable commonly know as ‘The Boy Who Cried Wolf’, this clip by College Humour tells the story of a man who uses the word incorrectly all the time, yet by the time he uses it correctly it’s too late. The video depicts a harsh lesson, but the use of ‘literally’ in a statement where it is unnecessary and incorrect is extremely irritating to some people — for example, people who speak English well — so if you take anything from this story let it be that: “if you keep saying ‘literally’ when you mean ‘figuratively,’ you will be stabbed by a vagrant and die.” You have been warned.
