I do not think it means what you think it means.

From a forum I'm on which had a thread about fanfic complaints:

... pppffffaaaaahah AHAHAAAA YOU GUYS guess what I just fell accross

"(...) the owner himself, lying castrate on the carpeted floor" MY FUCKING GOD SO CLOSE

I mean. I'm assuming this is a mistake, as there is no mention of blood. I shall have to read further to confirm; as the fic is rated E I can narrow down authorial intent by seeing if the narrative goes on to describe the state of the above-mentioned character's testicles.

(My friend, in this particular case the word you were looking for was, in fact, "prostrate.")

From the website of a woodland burial facility: the canapé of the woodland was so thick that barely any light was able to shine through.

It sounds rather filling ...

My country, 'tis of thee ...

A person can still love their homeland if they're expatriate. However, that would be highly unlikely if they're ex-patriots.

Just sayin'. ^_~

I don't think these words mean what you think they mean ...

Vendetta ≠ agenda, and protégé ≠ prodigy.

Why the hell is it so hard for some people to look up a word in a dictionary, when they're either not sure about the exact meaning (vendetta) or the correct spelling (I'd grudgingly accept a misspelling on protégé, because the pronunciation is fairly close to prodigy ... if you squint and have never seen either written)?

The Slytherin House colors are green and silver. While there's a superficial similarity in appearance, I still doubt that a former member of that House would appreciate being called a "Slytherin Aluminum".

Maybe try a substitute?

Because that's what "Ersatz" means ... in German. It's NOT a rune in any alphabet known to man.

Well, that stinks ...

... if the villain of the story is reeking havoc, wouldn't you say?
