Grammar Giggle – Dribble Your Insult In Some Other Court

This one popped up in a service that lets me know when people are using “Proof That” so I can make sure things are not being used in an inappropriate manner. It also flags “proofread” which prompted this piece of a comment on an article on a particular political page (which I won’t mention).
“Dribble” as a noun means a small trickling stream or a drop; a small quantity of anything; in sports, bouncing a ball or puck. I’m pretty sure what they wanted to say was “drivel,” which as a noun means silly nonsense. It always entertains me when someone is trying to insult another person, but uses improper grammar to do it.
