What Kind Of Ignorant Shitbag Eats ‘Dinner’ At Night?

Annie’s Mailbox, 13 May 2013:

Dear Annie: Would you please address the distinction between “dinner” and “supper”? I’ve heard many people refer to the evening meal as dinner, but the definition of an evening meal is supper. I even heard a prominent newscaster refer to the president as sitting down with a guest at the White House for “dinner” tonight, but if they are sitting down at night, it is clearly supper. — Stickler in the South

Dear Stickler in the South:

You are right and everyone who doesn’t agree with you is wrong! Your cultural norms are truer than everyone else’s. Things you think and do are real and authentic and things other people think and do which are not the same things that you think and do are aberrant and incorrect.
