I honestly had no idea really. How's it supposed to be spelled? Now I have to search it hahaha!

I always thought it had to do with both what it means and the fact you work at an ad company.

Yep. That's exactly right. Unfortunately, I don't work in the proofreading department. :)

It could be worse. You could have named your band Sig Transit Gloria like...um...the band Sig Transit Gloria, and have everyone constantly reminded by Google: "Did you mean: sic transit gloria?"

Pwned, as the kiddies say, by Merriam and Webster.

Because

A) Didn't notice, and

B) If I had noticed, I probably would have thought you were going for irony based on the "writing wrongs" subtitle.

B.

P.S. How were you spelling it before, because my Random House dictionary is spelling it "ad nauseam."

Matt Wieringo said...

I was spelling it "ad nauseUm." With a "u". 'Cause I'm stoopid.

Hey Matt,

Yer mizpelling Ad Nauseum. U writ it now Ad Nauseam.


[Actually, I hadn't noticed the mistake...]

Brian said...

Well then, there you go. The "um" ending is a lot more common in latin - at least that's the way I remember my high school latin - than "am" so I would have looked at it and not given it a second thought.

renecarol said...

Yeah I have to say I thought you spelled it wrong on purpose as well.

Ah so you goofed, it happens. =) To take a quote of sorts from Bad Santa: 'Shit happens when you party naked!'
