  • I've been seeing this particular abomination a lot lately on real estate listings. Similar to the pathetic ignorance and backformation that brought us ice coffee and ice tea. It's regular glass that has been STAINED, realtors! How does that not compute?!?! It's not some wacky new thing, it's been around for f-in' centuries!
