When speaking of the paper commonly used to decorate gifts, it is generally referred to as WRAPPING paper. It is in extremely poor taste to refer to it as RAPING paper, or to use that as a verb (eg. “Can’t talk, I’m RAPING some presents right now”).
If you do proceed with this misuse, understand that people will probably start avoiding making eye contact with you, and you may even see a drastic decrease in the number of holiday party invites you receive. Don’t say I didn’t warn you.
Merry Christmas, loyal readers!
PS. “Wrap” and “Rape” = not homonyms of one another, so this should be a non-issue. Alas, here we are…
Some others to watch out for:
“Marry Christmas!” -I don’t think holidays are included in the Sanctity of Marriage Act.
“Peas on Earth” – Yeah, I like peas too, but lets not get carried away, okay?
“Feed the Hungary this year” – I don’t know if I can feed a whole country.
“I’d like some new colon this year” – Not even going there.
“I can’t wait for Christmas mourning!” – Whoa, who are you planning to knock off?
