Susie Rushton’s asshole
I read Susie Rushton in the Independent today on the decline of the X-Factor, opining that the problem with the show is the judges – the panel is missing an ‘asshole’. Now, Susie Rushton may be American. But I don’t think she is. So why didn’t she say ‘arsehole’? (Perhaps she did and a sub hyper-corrected it, of course). I’ve commented on the unthinking confusion between US ‘ass’ and GB ‘arse’ before, but I am going to re-post it, as I think this needs maximum exposure.
