Adding to the endless amount of things one needs to look up on their phone at any given moment, the street name Kosciuszko is constantly on said list. And if you feel slightly retarded for never being able to spell it correctly, don’t feel too bad, as a recent study by the Committee To Establish Which Bushwick-Specific Words Residents Fuck Up the Most has revealed.
At the top of the list of consistent misspellings based on data illegally culled via tapping people’s texts from their iPhones is, of course, Kosciuszko, followed closely by “bodega” (often spelled as “bodayga”) and finger fucking with dildos (often spelled as “fingerr fuxxing dildo”).
According to the chair of the Committee To Establish Which Bushwick-Specific Words Residents Fuck Up the Most, Tadeusz Kościuszko XVI, “Americans in general, including Bushwickians, have difficulty pronouncing or spelling pretty much anything that’s over five letters. So really, ten letters is a very tall order indeed.” Thus, if you’re feeling guilty over your incessant stupidity in being unable to correctly spell Kosciuszko, either move out of Bushwick so you don’t have to deal with it or just, once again, chalk it up to being American.
