Der Begriff ist im gesamten deutschen Sprachraum bekannt. Synonyme für Korinthenkacker sind Erbsenzähler, Krümelkacker,[1] Beckmesser und (in der Schweiz) Tüpfli- oder Pünktlischisser. Eine ähnliche Bedeutung hat auch Haarspalter. Modellbauer sprechen auch vom Nietenzähler. Das Englische Nitpicker heißt allerdings nicht Nietenpflücker, sondern Nissenpflücker.

Aaaah, David Peel, the best anti-drugs advertisement there ever was.

Just hearing the cuteness and smug preciousness of how he pronounced 'stoned' was enough for me.

  11:37am Michael:

Yes, stoned---but I think it possible that the 'in N.J.' might be there because the posters were mostly put up on the Upsala campus.

Incidentally, you almost certainly can't get high from Mexican rope, except via oxygen deprivation.

Best guy in the whole world. Not a hint of hyperbole there.
Avatar 11:54am Dan B From Upstate:

I wonder if I called in to seven second delay and recited the lyrics to this song in a conversational manner if he would remember if that was an "awful song" written about him, or him he would just adore the praise.

So that makes Ken the second best guy in the world.
