I have noticed that a couple of times on TV and even on a talk show a host used the phrase "Well that is a mute point"
What exactly is a mute point?
I get that you can use it as a pun and mean "mute point" if you are very clever, but I really wonder if some people do not realize it is "moot" and not "mute".
Then again, the other day a lady I was at the grocery store and a lady in the line told me she had just got a job as a vet assistant. She said she was working with the animal corpse. I asked her if she knew that she was saying it wrong and I thought she meant "corps" and she said "no, silly, there is a p in the word". I could not help but chuckle
