What was it Alice was told? "A word means anything that I say it to mean"? lol

I agree that Winchester probably used 'literally' knowingly, because, given its three syllables, there was room for a phrase rather than a single word.

I still don't like a word used that incorrectly. So there.

(I do like the song, though.)
