I was listening to the radio this morning and there was a commerical on for some health plan. It had the supposed CEO of a dot-com startup talking about running her business and being careful with money, and included her saying she was “counting pennies like they’re manhole covers.” Huh? The saying is supposed to be “he throws around nickels like they’re manhole covers,” and I don’t think it’s supposed to be complimentary.

Literary education, especially apparently among marketing majors, isn’t what it used to be.
