PizzaJedi81: Gunny Highway: I disagreee.

You really must, what with the extra e there.

Don't mind that you disagree, but the whole Frankenstein's Monster thing is a bit of a button for me. It's one of the first books I remember reading.

I believe the accepted term for them is "Shelley-Americans".

Gunny Highway: That is okay and we dont need to be reminded of the source material every time someone uses the name.

It is NOT okay, and yes, we do have to remind people. It's not like Kleenix and Q-Tip.

This isn't some product that people use, it's a literary reference. Sometimes, pedantry is a good thing.

No, the monster is missing somewhere in Pennsylvania. Frankenstein is the doctor who created it.
