What's with the word 'rediculous'?

I can't tell if it is some 'new' thing where people spell ridiculous this way....or if there are just a LOT of people who don't know how to spell it correctly. Anyone know?

  • It's not knowing how to spell it. I spelled it that way too (because that's how I pronounce it) until some bitch threw it in my face and called me stupid for it. Uh, notice how everything else in my post is spelled correctly? Proper punctuation? Then it's obvious that I'm human and made a spelling error, so STFU lol.

  • I don't care about spelling, really, or proper pronunciation, blah-blah-blah.......just saw an opening to share my thoughts on the comment, "Those donuts are reDONKculous" off of Survivor. Maybe I should've spelled it "riDONKculous?" lol!

  • "RidicERous" - from Seinfeld..lol. I say it that way a lot, but only cause I think it's fun to make people go "Huh?" ha. But yeah..there's NO "e" in ridiculous.

  • Maybe I should've said "proper punctuation", lol, since clearly reDONKulous is a pronunciation thing, lol! Oops!

    Ajtherad: I love Seinfeld!! Ah, "ridicERous", hahaha!

  • Awesome, Windy! I don't see or meet many Seinfeld fans these days. I grew up watching the show..Festivus is my kind of holiday! And that's where I learned a lot of stuff I shouldn't have know about yet. haha.
