I saw this one while I was reading a story about the upcoming NASCAR season.  Apparently it’s news when Danica Patrick isn’t running the Indy 500.  Well, I’m not running it, either.  Interested reporters please leave me contact information.

Anyway, that is what the first part of the comment is about.  The second part is about the rest of the story, the upcoming Daytona 500.

The section of the comment that interests me, the real story, is the two-fer, getting to editorialize about two incorrect words in one phrase.

wetting my pallet

 

I do believe that Mr. Rexroat meant whetting my palate.  The words are almost homonyms, pronounced the same, but they sure ain’t synonyms.

Speaking of which, I really like synonym on my toast, with butter.
