“Wrong” / Memorable Fancies #1037

[“It was impossible to tell who was wrong, when we had finished.” – Donald Barthelme]

     The Supreme Council has decided to outlaw the word “wrong” unless a clearly defined and important moral imperative has been violated. Using “wrong” to accuse one of such things as the use of Wisteria Crayola when Asparagus Crayola was called for, or reciting “The Night Before Christmas” when “Casey at the Bat” was listed on the PTA program, must be given a more appropriate designation than “wrong,” one less worthy of opprobrium and consignment to head-hanging and a weepingly abject confession.
