“You certainly cover all the gamuts.” -

Bruce Kenyon, AM 770 CHQR  morning man, to a startled guest.

Anyone who gets up and starts speaking into a microphone at 6 AM is clearly asking for trouble – and perhaps a pass when it comes to Stupidisms. However, Mr. Kenyon is normally so feisty and glib that we couldn’t let this one pass.

On his way to covering all the “bases” he just couldn’t resist that little embellishment that landed him in the linguistic soup. As the word already denotes a complete series or range, it turns out one gamut is enough for all.
