This thread started with a list of "Nooryisms." Here's another one. (Apologies if something similar has been noted before)
Saith Georgie: Six people dead is a "disaster of Biblical proportions."
Georgie had Kelly Sweeney on to opine about the grounded / capsized Italian cruise ship. Re-capping the facts, they reported that six (at that time) were known dead, and Georgie blurted "it's a disyaster of Bibluhkul pruh-pWAUR-shuns!"
I thought to be a disaster / catastrophe "of Biblical proportions," it had to be like a couple of cities getting blasted with fire and brimstone, or the whole world getting flooded, or a whole nation getting multiple plagues.
But no; in Georgie World, a tipped-over ship and 6 known deaths fit the bill. Overstate much, Georgie..?
Maybe understandable though if we remember the big picture. Georgie doesn't like to (euphemism for "can't") read, so if he ever actually has skimmed through the Bible, it may have only been the Cliff's Notes, or "Bible for Dummies."
Or, because Georgie is only about being "positive," the only Bible he ever skimmed might have been some very New-Agey, feel-good-y, sweetness-and-light version. In that, Adam and Eve merely got downsized from their Edenic condo; the flood was a 15-minute shower and the global population got rainchecks; YHWH gave the inhabitants of Sodom and Gomorrah a collective "time out;" and Moses cast only 1 plague on Egypt: making all the pharaonic eye-liner clumpy.
