Things you have been slow to realise


#1942

The word pitch has now lost all meaning.


#1943

how is that a pun? it’s like calling a film about football ‘first touch’

there’s no double meaning. pitch perfect is necessary to sing acapella. the film is about acapella. where’s the pun?


#1944

Isn’t that like saying the Great Escape is a pun on Great Escapes?


#1945

yes it is. thank you.


#1946

Fucking hyg, eh?


#1947

Pitch perfect, as your Mirriam Webstering shows, is a broader term about things being correct or well judged.

Homebase is also a pun.


#1948

but in this case the only thing that could be correct or well judged is an acapella performance.


#1949

Also their charming friendships


#1950

no.


#1951

No.


#1952


#1953

also no one has ever used the term ‘pitch perfect’ otherwise. find me an example of that in journalism or lit, HYG. go on!


#1954

You mean no one has ever used “pitch perfect” expect to refer to a correct musical note?


#1955

i do.


#1956

this is definitely not true. I’ve heard it a lot for other meanings


#1957

Like, for example, from the dictionary page you screenshotted earlier?


#1958

two sheds, my dear hyg


#1959

Maybe all their speeches were in A flat minor, idk


#1960

I often think about this as it still absolutely baffles me how it could in any way be considered a pun.


#1961

Never mind North Macedonia, Swaziland changed its name?!
