    In Western Washington, many folks say things like "beg" (bag) and "fleg" (flag).
    I think it's the Swedish influence.

    Ok, I just looked it up on their website and they explain that “ir” usually indicates negation but in this instance it’s an “intensifier.” You could say “regardless” but apparently saying “irregardless” says that you mean business.

    I don’t buy it. I’m fine with adding it as long as the explanation is that people used it incorrectly so much that it became acceptable. I can be swayed if someone comes up with a bunch of other words that can have “ir” added to the front to intensify, also. Let’s hear them. If there aren’t any then this excuse is irlame!

    Hmmm...what if you actually spell out irf***ed with no asterisks would that be ok? Personally I think they are all just "Bozos On The Bus".
