Pomposity of the Day Dept.

“Craft an email.”

Usage:

“We need to get the district office to approve this, so I need to craft an email to them.”

I don’t know if I can explain what I find so hilarious about this. Seems to me that the phrase is condescending to forms of writing that really call for an application of craft.
