SOMEBODY needs to vet the correct spelling of EVERYTHING ... ' Pour' is French for 'for'; n'est pas?
I'm a huge fan or MeTv, and a Canadian (BC) to boot ... naynay 'aboot'
Let's try to catch these things early (Nip it in the bud!)

Missed the same one many others did. I guess I wasn't the only one that didn't watch the show with one of the most annoying laughs and voices in TV history. So annoying that Seinfeld had an episode with a similar sounding laugher and couldn't date because...he's a COMEDIAN. I think he described her as "Elmer Fudd ( or Woody Woodpecker ) sitting on a juicer."
