Adverbs – Usage

Common knowledge readers find news articles informative, bothersome, rhetoric

and on occasion humorous.

The first three categories from different printed publications constitute the

abundance of news selections.

It’s quite obvious to the average daily reader how little humor is found betwixt

penned lines unless the cartoon section is their first choice.

Laughter is good for the soul and I managed a few chuckles over the weekend

when I brought up an article beginning with the adverb ‘allegedly’.

I wonder if the layout editor of the popular newspaper created space for

this unbelievable hilarious read or by job description inserted it to fill up

a page.

Either – or – twas rather funny to envision the event defined below.

A voyeur, referenced as peeping Tom, had been arrested on scene of

a gym down south after falling through the ceiling of the women’s

locker room.

It seemed he received quite a bit more than he’d bargained for when

the locker room’s ceiling gave way and he fell approximately ten feet.

Sadly, he fell onto a 70-year old woman who thankfully attained no

injuries.

As a former gym member for years, I can attest woman aren’t exactly

weak and this woman along with several other patrons apprehended

the deviant prior to the arrival of law enforcement.

By definition a peeping Tom is referred to as a man who secretly observes

women undressing and derives sexual pleasure.

Arrested on site yet article states ‘allegedly’ since although accused he’s

yet to be proven guilty and convicted.

Yes, the good citizen has to stand by and watch how the system works or

fails.

Innocent until proven guilty!

Laughable since few people without malintent hide in the ceiling of gym

locker rooms.
