It’s good to know that we weren’t the only ones driven crazy by people who “axe” questions.

Fun fact! “Ask” was originally pronounced as “aks” [or “axe,” as it’s spelled in this picture] and changed over time through the process of metathesis. The word descends from the Old English verb 'acsian'. And then in some dialects it started to revert to the original “aks/axe.”Also interesting to note that the main dialect with which “aks/axe” is associated is AAVE - how funny that we shit on the language of black people in this ~~~”“”post-racial”“”~~~ society! Language bias is one of the last acceptable realms in which you can be unabashedly racist and still get away with - or even be praised for! - your prejudices.
