Too much Venture Bros on the brain. I saw Guild and immediately wondered what the Guild of Calamitous Intent had to do with it all.

Oh! A crossing guard! You Brits and you're mangled Englishing. I was this close to axing my co-worker what a lollipop patrol man was.

am i missing something here?

some retired guy gets hit by a car and dies. that's very sad. unfortunately, we all know that this kind of stuff happens.

here's the response:

arrest the driver (with no allegation of fault) before appealing for witnesses and plead for an MP and city counsel member to comment on the tragedy and community. 

/ these folks would never get anything done if they lived in florida. old people are dying by car like mice on a cat farm.

I agree, he was/is feigning ignorance. I figure that jumping up and saying "OMFG, How have you not seen the Wizard of Oz?" would be feeding the troll, so to speak. So I was trying to be coy.

I prefer to bludgeon the deliberately ignorant, and, on the off chance he really couldn't figure out the context, would give him the actual title to google.

It took me halfway through the article to realize a lollipop patrol man was a crossing guard.
From Wiki: "In Australia and the United Kingdom, a school crossing supervisor or school crossing patrol officer is colloquially known as a lollipop man, and lollipop woman/lady, because of the modified circular stop sign he or she carries, which resembles a large lollipop."
The question I have is: Why the fark can't British journalists refrain from using slang is serious stories? They are officially called "school crossing patrol officers". Is it so hard to use the correct terminology so the rest of the world knows what you are talking about?

Trying to educated every moron with an internet connection is a sisyphean task. Take a deep breath and repeat after me: "It's not my responsibility to educate every moron on the internet."

Don't recall Guilds being a part of the Wizard of Oz. Remember Munchkins and a Witch and a Tornado and a guy behind a curtain but not Guilds. Did the Munchkins form a Guild?
