Apologies, but I've gotta vent. There's a local radio announcer who can't give the time without saying something like:

It's six twenty-one — twenty one after six.

And he does it again and again, whenever he looks at the clock, always in the same maniacal voice and always using the same template:

It's H:MM after H.

Why the waste of bandwidth? Doesn't he have anything to say? This mannerism is driving me batty; batty it's driving me ...
