Netflix’s Santa Clarita Diet is a brilliantly dark comedy with two stomach-turning caveats: It’s super gross, and it can’t pronounce the word “Realtor.”

Sure, it’s common for normal people to mispronounce the word as “real-a-ter,” but this is a show about Realtors, and yet they don’t seem capable of saying their own job title. (Come on, just say it like it sounds: “real-tor.” Why are you adding a syllable?)

Like any TV-watching word nerd, I took my complaint about this to the one place where I knew I’d find people who share my persnickety annoyance: Twitter.

What I didn’t expect was for the show to respond.
