Tangled mess

Tangled web: If you like tangled sentences, you might check out Prepositions on the Loose on the web site. Some of the examples are funny, and most aren't that easy to untangle.

Quash this: On Friday night, a newspaper writer said that a team managed to squash a rally. I changed it to quash; I doubt that they squashed anyone.

quash 2 (kwsh)
tr.v. quashed, quash·ing, quash·es
To put down or suppress forcibly and completely: quash a rebellion.
