Yea, English is hard and grammar is very hard, most of us just judge correct grammar by "what sounds correct" to the ear, well - alot of us have heard alot of people SCREAM and SHOUT, it is as hard as HELL!!! - perhaps because most of us live in HELL in Nigeria we just like to use the word, well for your information, the correct use is: As hard as HAIL! Can you imagine that? My Naijapals friends, as you guilty of using the statement wrongly? Anyway, there is no problem with using it wrongly in the past, there is no one that has not made one or two grammatical blunders before, but go ahead and start using it correctly, anytime you want to tell someone about something as hard as hail!

You lost all credibility with this post when you said, "alot." It's not one word. It's "a lot."

And it’s “who will BELL the cat” and NOT “who will BAIL the cat!”

it's better to acknowledge we don't know English, and we aspire to use it correctly, not use what suits the ear.

I have used it wrongly, with that phrase, " As hard as hell'', now aware instead to use,  "its as hard as hail", thanks.
