I can't decide if this is a typo or a malapropism. Either way it's a shocker.


The correct word is of course 'whet'.

People these days don't know what 'whet' means. Took me a while to realise the mistake! (I'm a stickler, so it's not incredibly obvious)

Plus, why the huge quotes around the claim? Are they hinting that they don't really mean it? They're wagging their fingers next to their ears as they say it?
