Grammar minute 2

In a skit on Saturday Night Live, Kristen Wiig played a flawed mayoral candidate who preemptively produced and aired her own attack ads on herself. Funny, good concept.

In one ad, she explained that she had two daughters, but preferred "the youngest". Many references were later made to the youngest and oldest daughters.

Clearly, they should have been referred to as the 'younger' and 'older' daughters.
