"Prolly" on Ghost Hunters...

Did anyone see the 100th episode of Ghost Hunters tonight? Besides being completely cool, did you catch the first question? The person actually said, "prolly," for "probably." Really???? How in the world does someone actually get through highschool and "God forbid," college thinking PROLLY is a word?????

The only reason I bring it up here is, because I see it soooooo much on CM. Are people actually no longer being taught simple grammar, or do they just don't care?

  • Maybe it was his accent. I say certain words like instead of saying you all I say Y'ALL. I know to write you all.

  • I think people just don't care anymore. And saying something with an accent is different than saying PROLLY. I hate that word. I'm not a grammar nazi but I had a friend who pronounced sandwhich "sang-which" and that drove me nuts!

  • It had nothing to do with an accent. The question was written out. The person reading the question actually spelled it, and everyone on stage LAUGHED at it. It's not accent. It's also not using "texting grammar." That has a place in texting, NOT when writing a question to be read, or trying to make an intelligent answer to something. All it does then is make you look stupid.
