I glanced at the television; some chat show was on. The graphic for their next segment fair lept* out at me:
BROOKE'S FŮRRY FILM
Next: Shields to star in family-friendly film
Didn't bother to wait for the interview. I'm pretty sure you can't have it both ways; either "family-friendly" or the yif brigade.
* "Lept" is a perfectly good word, which can be found in all the better lexicons; even "leapt" shows up. Firefox and Blogger, purveyors of Basic English, will have none of it. It's "leaped" as far as they're concerned, or you can go jump off a cliff.
