blog that...

Neil was organizing his thoughts as he spoke out loud. As he talked, he referred to someone as an "escape goat". Without looking up, i muttered, "scapegoat".
"What??" he asked sharply.
"It's not an escape goat. The term you are referring to is a scapegoat."
"No it's not." he argued.
i grabbed the computer on the bed between us and googled "escape goat" - all the results changed the phrase to scapegoat. Except one.
"Ha!" He pointed to the lone result that kept the phrase as i had typed it in the search box.
Quickly we scanned the accompanying description. It was from the Urban Dictionary, and gave this definition for escape goat:
"A slang used by idiots who do not realize the term is scapegoat."
"Dare you to blog that tomorrow..." he said when we stopped laughing.
Done and done...
