It certainly raises the question, doesn't it?

To "beg" the question is to avoid answering it.

Does not beg the question.

WHY THE FARK do people insist on taking good idioms and just stomping on them?

It's become clear that the only reason 'begs the question' headlines are greenlit is to troll the pedants. (And yes, I'm a proud pedant.)

So the real question that is begging to be asked is "why did the driver get out of the van and take his pants off in a high crime area?"

The van roof was in his underpants because the elephant was wearing his pajamas.

So it's not just American journalists who are terrible with the English language. Not that it's a relief to know that.

I came here to see how many posts it would take before the obvious happened. The answer is two. Well done.
