In defense of adverbs

Anna Tambour has come in defense of adverbs. Deliciously.

My favorite quote:
 
The soup arrived, and George set about it with a willing spoon. His companion became hideously involved with spaghetti.
—P.G. Wodehouse, The Small Bachelor

The short story at the end is worth the article alone.

You'll regret your taste, Alice. This hideous involvement inspired the whole thing. It has haunted me at night, worse than a dinner of fried fat.

In solidarity!
