Literally fun

Oooh, I just found a blog about the misuse of the word "literally". I just submitted my favourite to them. It was on a local newscast (not CBC) where one of the reporters was standing on a wharf in rural Newfoundland. People were joyously celebrating the fact that a boat and crew they had thought had been lost, had instead been found and everyone was safe. The reporter said "People are literally jumping out of their skin here..." Ewwww, imagine the pictures of that. I laugh every time I think of it.
