Ranty Friday — The Best This Year

It isn’t even the end of January yet and already I have heard the following:

The movie event of the year


Surely the best goal we will see this year

which was uttered on NEW YEAR’S DAY FOR GOD’S SAKE


Best book I have read this year

IT’ WAS JANUARY 9th.  HOW MANY HAVE YOU READ?!!!!   The best of two?  Maybe three?  Well what does that say?  I could have said today:

Dinner of the year, last night

Because it is the only one I have cooked so far.   It is a pointless statement.   Of course it was dinner of the year,  there haven’t been any others.

Last week I heard a film trailed as:

Thriller of the year

Followed this week in a magazine with

It will be the wedding of the year

Despite the fact it is happening in February.

What utter nonsense all these declarations are.  I want to outlaw them.   The phrase “Best this year” cannot be used before December 1st.  Using it in January is wrong.   Several shades of wrong.

What do you think?



It’s Ranty Friday.   Do click through the blogs that have linked up below and see what others are ranting about this week
