image for There are some. There are people who say their pizza was awesome

There are places in the world where people don't say "awesome". They say "ah-some". There are some.

There are those who think they've been abducted by a Martian, which would be awesome. There are some.

There are millions of people who say "awesome" when they mean "very good". There are some.

There are people who like Jeremy Clarkson. They are not awesome. But there are some.

There are people who say their pizza was awesome. Did it fill them with wonder, I wonder. Or did it just fill them with pizza? There are some.

I love pizzas. If you offered me pizzas I would say "I'd adore some", which rhymes with "awesome" but not "ah-some". There are very few pizzas that I would pass* on but there are some. (The ones with anchovies)

There are people who believe that the Virgin Mary was filled with awe when the Angel Gabriel told her she had been impregnated by God. That would have been awesome. But there are many who think she just made it up to cover her pregnancy. There are some.

And there are still a few people who use awesome in its original sense. There are some.

There are poets who write stupid poems about the pronunciation of "awesome". There are some.

*pronounced "parse" as in parts of England
