You don't scare me. I come to work every day to the sound of "who is you?", "libary", and other "pacific" mistakes. And that's just the teachers! Kidding..

WASHINGTON: So, telleth, Bender. What hath happened to your body?
BENDER: I hocked it.
WASHINGTON: Hocked it? Why wouldst thou do that?
BENDER: Same reason you hocked your teeth.
WASHINGTON: Ah. Booze money.

It is language. It is living and evolving. The incorrect things will become correct over time, and that's the very way of the language evolution. You can't conservate it in its 'correct form'. Romanic languages (Spanish, Italian) are just Latin spoken badly.
Funny thing about Futurama is, that if Fry was really frozen and then defrozen after 1000 years, he wouldn't understand a word.
