Auto Grille Pros

Well, as per grammar experts, grill mostly refers to a cooking surface, which is formed of parallel metal bars whereas, the word grille, refers mainly to a grating being used as a barrier or screen on the front end of a vehicle. However, for auto enthusiasts the picture is different. They do not stress much on the spelling and use both the words for addressing the front end cover protecting the engine of a vehicle.

What about the silent e making the "I" long sounding like Gr-EYE-lle in merikan speak? If we are going to spell it all French why don't we just throw five or six extra vowels on the end of it and call it good If we do it German style, then it would be pronounced grill-eh in what ever dialect you want if you have the e at the end, right?

Possibly A, B and C? Those are perfectly cromulent in hexadecimal, being equivalent to 10, 11 and 12 in decimal.

You know you're an ecomodder when...
... You are writing to some friends and each time you want to write "barbeque grill" it comes out with an 'e' at the end.

Too much time on this forum, not enough time socializing with normal people...

But why on Earth would you want to socialize with normal people? Terminal boredom.

I can smell when my neighbors have a BBQ from around 400 - 500 feet away. The smell gives me a headache, and makes me wonder how it is that people think that using lighter fluid is a good thing.
The stuff is poison, and you are going to eat something cooked with that ??
