Listen up, people on reality TV shows (I'm talking to you, Next Food Network Star). You're buggin' me. And I'm only going to write this once:

The verb Jive, spelled with a "v," means to tease, to deceive, or to speak in the manner of hip folk. But jibe, spelled with a "b," means to accord, agree, or mesh. So, like, an ingredient can't jive with a recipe.

Got it?
