It’s Joss NOT Josh

Very few people at my dayjob know Joss. In fact, at the time Dr. Horrible was released, no one knew who Joss Whedon even was. I was shocked, I was saddened. I mean, a Whedon-less life?!


About a year ago, the topic of weekend plans came up after a meeting at the office. Everyone else’s plans involved sports, shopping, or a wine tasting / makeover thing. When it came around the table to me, I proudly stated that I was going to a charity screening of Joss Whedon’s Dr. Horrible (this one), and that I would hopefully get to meet Felicia Day. As per the usual, they gave me blank stares. But then, one co-worker piped up. I hate to put people in pigeon holes, but if there were a photo beside the definition of sorority girl – it’s her. I was pleasantly surprise when she spoke up.

“Oh, yes, Josh Whedon! He’s going to be directing an episode of Glee, right? I’ve heard my husband mention [who worked at ABC] mention him.”

I replied, “Yes, I also heard that JOSS Whedon will be doing that.”

I am not usually that person, but I couldn’t help it.  Her tone was not the innocent, I don't know who that is so I'm mispronouncing it.  It was the "I'm correcting you" tone.  So I corrected back.

So there.


  1. PERFECTLY acceptable reaction. I would have done just the same thing.

  2. I am sure that Josh Whedon is a perfectly nice guy, too.

    or maybe not, Maybe it is Joss Whedon's evil twin that directs things like Glee.


    That is all :p

  4. I once had to bite my lip from correcting a friend of a friend on the same matter. Like, literally. I turned my head and bit my lip, since I was two milliseconds from saying JOSS.

    ...this was a dude who owns all of Buffy, Angel and Firefly as well. Man...

  5. Un post strepitoso! Vai così, ragazza, sei un mito. :-)

  6. I am constantly doing the same thing. And the main offender is my boyfriend, so I am continually getting angry glares for correcting him.

  7. Correctors for the win!

    I run up against this with the less obsessively fannish now and then. For repeat offenders, I generally say "it's Joss, like Joss Stone" or "Joss, short for Joseph" in the hope that it'll stick better.

  8. I am so glad that I am not the only who gets annoyed by it. :D

  9. Bahaha. My boyfriend does that 99% of the time he says Joss' name. And I correct him 100% of the time. :P
