  1. Oh, while we are talking about “Indian Musical Films”:

    The worst is “Dr. John Smith, PhD” because it’s not only the extra word but the mentality of many doctors.
    Naan bread doesn’t bother me , maybe because it’s delicious and everytime I hear it I start thinking how good it is and don’t have time to think about how it’s said.

    Another example : Chai tea

    • “Charming Shahrukh” maybe not, but “Sexy Shahrukh Khan Movie/Picture/Interview/Song” is just silly. Why repeat yourself?

      Also, why does no one ever say “AT Machine”? Or “OM System”?

    • From a comment above, I can offer the counter “Sexy Shahrukh Film”.

      But of course, you are the person Who Doesn’t Like Shahrukh, so you may not agree.

  3. I always stumble over “Pin number”. Even p(ersonal) i(dentification) n(umber) code is kind of weird. But then recently someone asked me whether I had a pin for changing the card in a phone. She actually meant the physical pin you push in…

    • OH! PIN Number!!! Yes! That is so terrible. Why can’t we just say “PIN Code”?
