conclusion to the battle of epic pronunciation...

Okay folks...the results are in from The Scallop Poll of 2009. Yep...that's right you can all take a deep breath and know that proper pronunciation has won out and Vanessa, you can keep your faith in the English language!

As I said before I am counting some of my real-life friends and families votes...as well as my blog-buds!

So let me break it down for you all....

My good buddy Jil, her mom and dad, and my two dumb brothers all voted for option #2 (if you don't remember which option was which go here)...adding up to a total of 5 votes!

Jen (who was a member of the original scallop disagreement, along with Jil and myself), my mama, her friend Connie, my brothers girlfriend Bastina, Krista's husband Kyle, friends of the blog Vanessa and Amanda, and myself all voted for option #1...adding to a whopping total of 8 votes! What does that mean?

Option #1 kicked some serious boo-tay! (yes...only by three votes but c'mon...I only have four followers! that's as high as the numbers can get!)

Everyone can rest assured that even though the English language has taken some blows recently (like eliminating hyphens, adding bootylicious to the dictionary, and my own abuse of ellipses) there are still aspects of it that remain proper...such as the pronunciation of the word 'scallop'.

Word...
