Stupid Sayings is Stupid, I love ’em to death….

Why do people say they love someone “to death” to denote that they really really really love someone?  More likely, they really like that person and usually, “I love _____ to death” is followed with a but…  I think that’s stupid.

I propose that we change that to, I love someone to hell?  Or, “I love her to all hell”

Me:  How do you feel about that person?

You:  Oh, I love him to death… but he has a drinking problem.

Me:  Well, I love him to all hell, because he has a drinking problem and he crashed my scooter into that mountain over there.

You:  Oh, no, that’s awful, but he’s a great guy, I love him to death.

Me:  Well… I hate you to death, but I still love that guy.  Great guy.

See, isn’t that a nicer and more meaningful statement – it just makes a whole heckuva lot more sense than loving someone to death.  Isn’t that what got that one morbidly obese lady in Wichita put away for life when she didn’t realize that she killed her husband by rolling over on top of him after intercourse?  Think about it the next time you put “death” at the end of a statement including “love.”

Unless of course you are professing your love for Slayer or some other form of awesome death metal.
