HELP I’VE BEEN EVACUATED!!!

The definition of evacuated is “to be emptied out.” It is one of the most commonly misused words in journalism. It’s most common misuse starts with “X # of people were evacuated….”

The discerning verbivore gets a little nauseous at this statement. While it is humourous it is also pretty gross when you think about it.
